“Help…me…eat…me,” the CroisSONIC BLT said as it gasped for breath when I opened its foiled wrapper. I knew something was wrong when I heard it cough like an 80-year-old diner waitress whose voice had been scarred by years of hollering out quirky names for the way an egg is cooked and inhaling second hand smoke. What could I possibly do? I looked away for a moment, pondering over if I should neglect this sandwich. No, I couldn’t possibly abandon it as it stared at me with its bacon tongue sticking out of its limp bun of a mouth, oh excuse me, croissant.

“Help…me…eat…me,” the CroisSONIC BLT continued to plead. Did it want me to end its misery after spending its entire childhood under a heat lamp? I did not want to ask it questions, because it was so pitiful to look at. It wasn’t as emotional as those commercials with Sarah McLachlan showing neglected puppies and kitties, which make me weep, but it was pretty awful.

This sandwich, if you could even call it that, put me in a very awkward position. Not as awkward as the time my grandmother asked what “Two Girls One Cup” meant, but awkward nevertheless. Should I eat it, or should I just give it to one of those puppies in that Sarah McLachlan commercial? I decided to take a bite. “Thank…you,” it said in its weak ET-like voice. I was sure that this would be a glorious day for the CroisSONIC BLT, but it would not be one for my colon.

I thought it would be harder than it was to end this sad little sandwich’s life. Actually, the entire task took less than three minutes, and that was alternating between a Diet Cherry Limeade (one of the reasons to go to Sonic) and the medium order of tater tots that came packaged along with this depressing sandwich. Thankfully, those tater tots were the Prozac I needed to help get me through the serious bouts of sadness that occurred while eating the pathetic CroisSONIC BLT.

The croissant made Burger King’s look like a freshly baked, buttery pastry that could be found in the finest of Parisian bakeries, while the strips of bacon were nice and crisp. BUT THERE WERE ONLY TWO STRIPS!!! It’s a BLT, Sonic! All caps, not a bLT. As for the lettuce and tomato, they were…well…not ripe.

The CroisSONIC BLT had so much potential, but alas, it just fell into the trap that a lot of fast food sandwiches tend to crash into (a.k.a Sandwich Skid Row). It sounds good and the original looks scrumptious, but it loses its self worth because it knows it could never live up to what’s on billboards and television commercials. It does not care what it looks like and just waits until a hungry human takes it out of its misery.

With all of these sad sandwiches, there needs to be a fast food sandwich rehab, which I think would also make a decent reality show.

Pros: Good value. Crispy bacon. My colon forgiving me for eating this sandwich. Doesn’t take long to eat if you’re in a rush. It’s delivered to you by people on skates. No trans fats. Tots are good.
Cons: Limp croissant. Only two strips of bacon. Sandwiches that end up on skid row. Not enough food to cure severe bouts of hunger. Almost 30 grams of fat. Too much sodium.

  1. The picture of it actually looks good but yeah…definitely needs more bacon than that, at least double the amount. I do like Sonic’s breakfast burritos and I usually get mine with bacon…their tater tots rock also.

  2. This seriously looks and sounds gross. Limp food is not a good thing Sonic!!!

    Also I think French people everywhere would be appauled by this waste of their crossiants.

    @Chuck- totally agree with you on the burittos and tator tots.

  3. @ Trish

    Your Sonic is weak. A girl got hit by a car at mine while delivering on skates, and they still send broke teenage girls out in fast food traffic to feed people. It’s really sad.

    Anyway, the only thing I usually eat from Sonic is the Super Sonic Breakfast Burrito. That is the single great fast food breakfast item I’ve ever eaten.

  4. 2 Slices of bacon Thats poor even for sonic
    not that I even have a sonic around here.


  5. I think this sandwhich is a disgrace to bacon…what’s the point of using primo ingredients if you are simply going to have a crappy sandwhich? I used to work in sonic and usually they care about the food a little more than this…at least they used to.

    This review gave me a sad 🙁

  6. I like the breakfast version of the croissonic. But BK’s croissant sandwich is way better. I just love Sonic because they do breakfast all day. 😀

  7. I ordered this at the Sonic in Nampa, Idaho and there was too -much- bacon on it. It kept falling OFF my sandwich. Maybe you have a weak Sonic.
