Mint Iced Green Tea from Sonic…. Amazing!
I’ve always loved a lot of things about Sonic – amazing hamburgers, coney dogs, tots, onion rings, and their gourmet hot dogs are the stuff dreams are made of. They’ve always had great drinks, too – but now they’ve gone and outdone themselves; and as an iced tea lover I’m beyond excited.
The very day I learned that Sonic now has a variety of Iced Green teas, I made a bee line for the Owensboro Sonic. Unfortunately, I’d already had lunch, so all I could do was swoon over the pictures of burgers and coney dogs. I made a vow to a coney dog that I’d be back for him. Soon.
We sat there for about 5 minutes as I tried to decide between the choices. See a picture of the menu below and you’ll understand my dilemma – everything looked Heavenly! (Click for a larger view.)
I finally chose the Mint Sweet Iced Green Tea because it sounded impossibly refreshing. Sonic fresh brews their tea, so I knew it’d be better than some fast food restaurants. I didn’t, however, expect it to be as great as it was. One sip and I launched into the whole, “Wow… Oh My Word…” routine. I reminded myself of one of those zany two guys in the hilarious Sonic commercials. Definitely the one in the passenger seat.
Sonic has waxed brilliant again. Not only do they realize that most of us are trying to drink more tea and green tea because of their MANY health benefits (as well as outstanding taste) – they also realize that summer is just around the corner and nothing is as refreshing as a great big glass of iced tea.
My daughters and I often grab Sonic drinks to take to the park with us – or wherever we’re heading. Sonic’s cups are so much sturdier and so perfectly insulated that a drink from Sonic stays fresher and lasts longer than drinks from other places.
Do these people just excel at everything they do?!
If you go to Sonic between 2 and 4 (any day of the week), you’ll be able to take advantage of their “Happy Hour.” During Happy Hour hours, drinks are 1/2 price. How cool’s that? If you go on “Tax Day” (April 15), drinks are 1/2 price ALL DAY. Great time to try a new iced tea flavor or two!
You simply have to get to your nearest Sonic and try these flavored iced teas. I recommend the Mint Sweet Green Iced Tea with all that’s within me. It’s better than you’d ever dare hope for. Refreshingly delicious and down right pretty too. I can hardly wait for my next one… it’ll be accompanied by a coney dog, you can bet on it.
