Sonic Drive-In is now offering hot dogs in buttery croissant buns. Reader Brad sent in this photo from a Sonic location in Chicago.
Their new Croissant Dogs are available in two varieties:
Original – A hot dog topped with just mustard.
Bacon Double Cheddar – A dog topped with chopped bacon, shredded cheddar cheese, a cheddar cheese sauce, and spicy mustard.
It shouldn’t be surprising to see new buns from Sonic in June. In June 2013, the chain introduced their Pretzel Dogs. And, last June, it was their Cheesy Bread Dogs. So does anyone want to take a guess at what we’ll see in June 2016?
The Original has 380 calories, 22 grams of fat, 9 grams of saturated fat, 0 grams of trans fat, 35 milligrams of cholesterol, 1070 milligrams of sodium, 31 grams of carbohydrates, and 11 grams of protein.
The Bacon Double Cheddar has 510 calories, 34 grams of fat, 15 grams of saturated fat, 0 grams of trans fat, 55 milligrams of cholesterol, 1670 milligrams of sodium, 34 grams of carbohydrates, and 18 grams of protein.
