OKLAHOMA CITY - March 7, 2013 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Traditionally the domain of casual restaurants, the premium dessert is alive and well at SONIC Drive-In, and now includes a new Molten Cake Sundae.
The new premium sundae serves up a rich chocolate cake filled with hot fudge and topped with SONIC’s Real Ice Cream, finished with toppings such as brownie pieces, fresh bananas, real caramel sauce, a maraschino cherry and whipped topping.
“When it comes to offering premium desserts, SONIC makes it possible to have your cake and eat it, too,” said Chef Clas Petersson, vice president of product innovation. “We offer the convenience of a quick-service restaurant with quality dessert options similar to a sit-down casual restaurant.”
The shareable dessert is ‘a la mode’ to the max, meaning SONIC is topping your dessert off with not just Real Ice Cream but all the toppings that come with a premium sundae. With flavors like Fudge Brownie, Strawberry Banana Split and Turtle, you can have your dessert with a side of dessert.
With hopes for an early spring, SONIC’s Molten Cake Sundae is the first in a series of premium desserts created to appeal to our Real Ice Cream lovers. To help satisfy cravings, SONIC introduces the Ice Cream Social.
