FAST FOOD NEWS: Sonic Mocktail Slushes

SONIC Mocktail Slushes

Update: We tried the Reaper Spicy Margarita! Click here to read our review.

Sonic is now offering three new Mocktail Slushes to help cool you down this summer. Okay, well, actually two will help you cool down and the other may make the inside of your mouth feel as hot as you feel on the outside.

The hot one is the Reaper Spicy Margarita, which combines a classic margarita flavor that’s infused with the flavor of one of the world’s hottest chili peppers, the Carolina Reaper, all of which is blended into slush form. A small has 190 calories, 0 grams of fat, 230 milligrams of sodium, 51 grams of carbohydrates, 50 grams of sugar, and 0 grams of protein.

The non-alcoholic slushes that’ll bring relief from heat are the Strawberry Daiquiri, a combination of real strawberries and sweet coconut flavor, and Pina Colada, a tropical blend of sweet coconut flavor and pineapple flavor, each blended into a icy Sonic Slush. A small Strawberry Daiquiri has 220 calories, 0 grams of fat, 40 milligrams of sodium, 58 grams of carbohydrates, 50 grams of sugar, and 0 grams of protein. A small Pina Colada has 200 calories, 0 grams of fat, 35 milligrams of sodium, 54 grams of carbohydrates, 54 grams of sugar, and 0 grams of protein.

They’re available for a limited time while supplies last and they’re available for half-price every day from 2-4 p.m. during Happy Hour.

Chester Cheetah is the new Colonel Sanders. Of all the other folks who have gone through the revolving door of being Colonel Sanders, I think Chester is the only one I’ll remember ten years from now. The reason why Chester has donned the Colonel’s white suit and facial hair is because KFC has rolled out the Cheetos Sandwich.
