Yesterday, Sonic® Drive-In announced the Kale Cream Pie Shake to unsuspecting fans as an April Fools’ Day joke, but today the company has announced three new flavors that should appear on the menu as part of the Summer of Shakes promotion.
Last year’s daring Peanut Butter and Bacon Shake was the unexpected star, but three new flavors for 2014 are equally as exciting, including Oreo® Peanut Butter, Salted Caramel and Chocolate Covered Jalapeño. The new shakes, along with 22 other flavors, will be available for half price after 8 p.m. beginning April 28.
“Despite the April Fools’ play on a kale shake, Sonic is serious about delivering innovative frozen desserts to guests at a level of quality not usually seen at fast-food restaurants,” said Chef Claes Petersson, VP of product innovation at Sonic. “After months of testing interesting but still delicious flavor combinations, we’ve created some seriously enticing shake flavors. Salted Caramel is a wonderful trend we were happy to embrace, and Chocolate Covered Jalapeño is a bold and fun twist on chocolate dipped fruit flavors—and who doesn’t love the sound of Oreo Peanut Butter?”
