Sonic dessert menus are delicious, but are they really that good?
You might think they’re just a way for you to grab a slice of the famous snack but for some it’s a little more than that.
“I don’t think you really want to be eating it with a fork because it’s too mushy and it takes away from the flavour,” says Dr Rachel Brown, a food blogger and dietitian who has a Sonic dessert recipe blog.
Ms Brown says some of the desserts on the menu are a little too sweet and not as appealing to some people.
“It’s kind of like if you go to a restaurant and you have to order a steak and you’re not sure if you want to eat it with your fork because of the way it’s cooked, you might not want to do it,” she says.
“Sonic is so versatile because it can be used as a snack or it can just be as a treat.”
You can eat a large serving of a Sonic treat for less than $1.50 and that’s the way to go, but some of them have gone a bit too far.
Some Sonic desserts are like “chicken-fried pizza”, and can be topped with chicken, bacon, cheese or even tomato sauce, but for most of us, the dessert will be a whole chicken breast or chicken breast and a cheese curd or sausage.
While some desserts are delicious in their own right, the best way to get to know the flavours and textures of a particular Sonic dessert is to try it on yourself.
Dr Brown says the best time to try out a new dessert is when it’s fresh and the texture is fresh.
“The texture and the taste is very fresh and you can really taste the flavours,” she explains.
“I would definitely recommend trying the fruit and veg options if you haven’t tried them before.”
You can even make your own.””
