  1. Just plain weird. It’s like they took egg whites powder or dried eggs to their ice cream and added a topping in excess. I never dreamed I’d EVER say an ice cream dessert is gross, but it was. When it starts to melt, it solidifies and the “custard becomes chewy and odd, flavor even changed. It’s like a really messed up Sonic Blast. I’ll stick with a Sonic Blast. At times they would skimp on the candy, but it never tasted weird and I still have gotten many over the years. I was SHOCKED by the price like over $9.00 for a large for a fast food dessert. I too ate just a little and felt stuffed. Couldn’t believe the calories. More than I have EVER seen. At least 4000 calories for the large Heath. Big mistake in product development Sonic. What were you thinking? Hope only danger is in the fat and pruce.

    1. I think the price is reasonable. For saying takes over 5 minutes to make the large drinks cause you have to keep adding ice cream and blending them u .. I never skimp candy though.. I always put extra

  2. This stuff is awful. Thank you for telling us what is mixed in. I guessed it was tapioca pudding. It stopped me up for two days. This stuff(not custard) is truly gross and in digestible. Never buy it again!

  3. We just tried the vanilla and “dark” chocolate custard concretes. The only difference I noticed was that it didn’t melt as fast as the blast. Otherwise, it was pretty much the same, and a bit more expensive. My husband was disappointed that chocolate concrete wasn’t dark at all – it looked like regular chocolate. Other than that, it was just like eating the blasts. Good, but nothing to rave about.

  4. Weirdest texture ever. Expected creamy, but it’s grainy. Gross & waaay overpriced. Just go to Ben and Jerry’s.

  5. Horrible – not custard at all! I left it sitting on the table because it tasted so bad and when I returned 2 hours later, it had not melted at all. Hmmm, shouldn’t real custard melt, hell, shouldn’t ice cream melt. What is this junk they are serving us?

    1. Soft serve and custard powder. Personally I wouldnt mind if people didnt order them.. I hate making them cause the powder pops in you face when you blend it.. Go for a regular blast

  6. Having grown up eating true custard from a local icecream parlor, I was curious to see how sonics compares. The prices between the custard I’m used to and sonic are only about a dollar apart, a dollar I will splurge on every time for my local store. These sonic SHAKES are far from being custard. I could find no difference between a regular sonic shake and this dessert. Mine had a good amount of candy throughout, but lacked the thick, smooth, creamy consistency I think of when I imagine true frozen custard. I’d say to save your money, buy a shake for a dollar less, and see if there are any local frozen custard shops near you.

  7. Yall have not had real custard until you have tried ted drews custard in st louis Missouri that is the bomb..the best custard i have ever had !!!!.such a shame we live in texas now.

  9. I had my first and last concrete. It was nasty, grainy, mealy, nonmelting, gross custard I ever tasted. It never melted. It wouldn’t freeze, I tried to throw it down the sink with very hot water and it wouldn’t melt. I called manager and was told it maybe soured or not mixed right. ????? Why would you sell it? What are they feeding us? I called corporate and asked but so far they couldn’t say. I’m worried that I may get sick or whatever was in it makes me ill long term. I put it in my freezer and kept my receipt. I have a worried next few days to find out if I’ve become infected with e-coli or listeria. Or my intestinal track concreted shut. Don’t eat this product till we find out what’s in it.

    1. Dont worry it actually ice cream but the “custard” powder that we mix in makes it set up or something wont make you sick just disgusting

  10. Ordered the strawberry with m&ms in the mini size and what was served to me was an odd, room-temperature strawberry gluey consistency, & they forgot the M&Ms. I took one sip and threw it out. Absolutely the grossest dessert I’ve had in my 36 years alive. I rarely eat fast food but had a craving for a cold treat. I guess they saved me 700+ cal for the “custard’s” disgustingness. Never again! Should’ve just gone down the street for a Blizzard or Steak ‘n Shake shake!

  11. I just had the Heath vanilla concrete. By the time I was near the end I was really wondering why I was still eating it. The flavor of the custard was not anything great and it certainly did not compare to my Mom’s custard. The pieces of candy we’re small and uniform and for some reason left me feeling like I really wasn’t getting enough of the Heath I love so much. Lastly, what was in the bottom of this thing? It was the consistency of marshmallow from a jar and also maybe some whipped cream? Whatever it was I didn’t like it! That was my first and last concrete.

  12. Ok, you all scared me! Our local Sonic must do a better job mixing. My dark chocolate Oreo was indeed dark and it was mixed well. It was not great, though. It tasted like frozen pudding. It was not bad, but not worth the calories for me. I had high hopes since we live in a small town with few options.

  13. Bought a vanilla heath custard. Tasted like vanilla and about half way through ate a spoonful of powder. What the hell os the powder in this so called custard. Last time I buy anything from Sonic. It was terrible.

  14. I’m from Utah originally. In Utah there is a drive- in called Neilsens. They sell homemade frozen custard concretes and sandwiches. Sonics rendition of concrete custard is just NOT the same animal. Sonics custard is NOT custard. Freddy’s is closer but Neilsons is the BEST!

  15. Just bought banana/reeses custard concrete. Was pudding like ( ie; custard), and the candies mixed very well. But not a big fan. I just didn’t like the texture of eating pudding with candies in it. And the banana taste was very artificial very strong. The blast are a lot better to me.

  16. Jammed 300,000 micrograms up my $hitter at 7 a.m. and was fired from my job by 11:30 a.m. because I was so productive they called me out for being on drugs and in a fit of blackout rage I saw RED (wasn’t from my leaking asshole) and snapped at my boss and told her “to go eat shit and kill herself and that I could probably have her job AND have her daughter pregnant within a week”! I was feeling SO good and didn’t even care, I left all my shit there and skipped out of there and then slashed her new tires (cut myself bc all I had was a pu$$y Swiss Army knife and it closed on my finger)! I don’t even care I love this stuff and will be snorting/firing/plugging it till the day I die!! Cant Wait!!!!

  17. Sonic’s “Dark Chocolate Oreo Concrete” is a huge disappointment. Think vanilla ice cream mixed with powder, and a few stale pieces of Oreo sprinkled on top. It is nothing at all like the picture. Fortunately, the manager agreed with my feelings, and promptly refunded the money I had spent. Sonic, do you listen to your customers?

  18. I don’t know what sonics you guys are all going to but the one I went to down in Mississippi knows how to make a good custard concrete. My husband and I tried it for the first time and I got the Oreo dark chocolate. It was very rich very thick and Oreo was mixed throughout the whole thing I didn’t see any vanilla or powder. Delicious!!
