So….I know pregnant women aren’t supposed to crave spicy food but I definitely do! It’s funny, something bland will give me heartburn but something spicy won’t! I love SONIC and I was excited to try out their new spicy items!
SONIC Drive-In recently unveiled a new lineup of spicy menu items, and they mean spicy, that seek to meet the growing consumer demand for fiery foods. The new lineup includes the Classic Spicy Chicken Sandwich, Island Fire™ Spicy Chicken Sandwich, Island Fire™ SuperSONIC® Cheeseburger and Southwest Chipotle Breakfast Burrito. Restaurant trade magazine Nation’s Restaurant News reported in June on the spicy food trend, citing a study that found hot or spicy foods appealed to 48 percent of American consumers. In addition, over 55 percent of those ages 25 to 44 ranked their preferred level of heat at a seven or higher on a scale of one to 10.
The Classic Spicy Chicken Sandwich is a kicked-up classic, featuring 100 percent all-white meat crispy chicken breast filet seasoned with a spicy cayenne pepper blend, crisp lettuce, hand sliced tomato and mayo atop a toasted ciabatta bun. For the more daring, the Island Fire™ Spicy Chicken Sandwich includes a sweet and spicy habanero sauce on top of the spicy chicken breast filet for a completely new and exotic chicken experience. For burger lovers, the Island Fire™ SuperSONIC® Cheeseburger is made with 100 percent pure beef patties, featuring smokey cheddar and pepper jack cheeses, crisp bacon, fresh lettuce, hand-sliced tomato and a sweet and spicy habanero sauce on a warm, toasted bakery bun. To satisfy cravings for spicy at all times of the day, SONIC is also introducing the new Southwest Chipotle Breakfast Burrito with smoked chipotle sauce and fire-roasted red and green peppers to help bring a little more spice to breakfast time.
We tried the 3 sandwiches. My favorite was the burger since I don’t eat chicken that often. Jamie loved the chicken sandwiches. Noah hates anything with spice so he passed. The items were spicy but I didn’t think they were super spicy. They had a lot of flavor and the combinations of the items were delicious! I hope they keep these items on the menu, we loved them!
