If I want a warm snack that tastes like Nacho Cheese Doritos from a convenience store, I could get these Doritos Loaded, or I could grab a bag of Nacho Cheese Doritos and stick it into the store’s obligatory microwave for 10 seconds. (Thanks for the photo, Jeff!)

FAST FOOD NEWS – Sonic Cheesy Bread Dogs (Garlic Parmesan and Ultimate Cheese & Bacon)

Sonic Cheesy Breads Dogs

About this time last year, Sonic Pretzel Dogs were making their way onto Sonic’s vast menu board. This year, it’s Cheesy Bread Dogs. Impulsive Buy reader David spotted the new line with buns that appear to have cheese baked into them at a Sonic in Cedar Park, Texas.

The Sonic Cheesy Bread Dogs come with premium 100% pure beef hot dogs and are available in two varieties. Garlic Parmesan features grilled onions and a garlic parmesan sauce. The Ultimate Cheese & Bacon Cheesy Bread Dog is topped with cheddar cheese sauce and bacon. There’s no mention of them on the Sonic website, so these might be in the testing phase.

If you’ve tried either Sonic Cheesy Bread Dog, share your thoughts in the comments.
