The new Sonic M&M Candies & Strawberries Waffle Cone Sundae
The crowning achievement of our trip to Sonic
You know the funniest part? I got an email from Sonic announcing this product while I was sitting in the car waiting for it to be delivered! There is also a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup & Chocolate version as well as a Snickers Bar & Caramel version, but since my son was with me, it means going with the only non-nut version. You might be thinking "but Dubba, you hate the frosty waffle cone" and you're right, I do, but 1) this is solid soft serve and not runny frosty and 2) this is way prettier.
Did the strawberry sauce immediately start running out the low point of the cone and rush towards my hand? yeah. Did they only bring us one spoon which I gave to my daughter for her mini Oreo blast, forcing me to eat this like a regular cone? yeah. Do I care about either of these things? a little, but not a ton. See, by forcing me to eat it like a regular ice cream cone, I realized just how wonderful the waffle cone is. It's not your typical, brown sugar cone or waffle bowl, this is much more like a sweet, light pizzelle and it makes everything worth it. Sure it breaks easily, but it's hard to complain when something fresh and tasty is falling in to your mouth.
Do I recommend trying it? Ofcourse! Even if you decide you don't like the form factor, it's a really neat treat to stare at for a few minutes. It's what the frosty cone should have been. My only technical critique is that I wish the toppings went further down so it was a more complete experience. [Note: Sonic says you can customize your waffle cone experience any way you like, you aren't limited to the three primary choices above].
My daughter had wanted to try one of the nerd slushes but after Ryan's comments on the Nosh Show I decided a plain blue raspberry sans nerds would be safer.... she liked it but was still a little sad she didn't get to try the nerd version (curse my over protective nature!).
Wafflecone Verdict? Drool inducing
Buy Again? Yeah
