Starting under 350 calories, the SONIC Signature Slingers lets you get away with all the flavor of a cheeseburger with none of the guilt starting at $1.99*.

Beginning Monday, March 5, guests can enjoy two Signature Slingers cheeseburger options to satisfy their guilt-less burger cravings. The Classic SONIC Signature Slinger is topped with fresh lettuce and tomato, diced onions, crinkle-cut dill pickles, mayo and melted American cheese served on a bakery-quality brioche bun. The Bacon Melt SONIC Signature Slinger is made with crispy bacon, layered with melted cheese and mayo served on a bakery-quality brioche bun.

“We are excited to be a partner on the new Signature Slingers, which brings together the craveability of pure beef with the juiciness of mushrooms, creating a great tasting cheeseburger that guests will only be able to get at SONIC,” said Bart Minor, president of the Mushroom Council, which provides marketing and education on behalf of the nation’s mushroom growers and importers. “The trend of blending mushrooms into a burger patty has been atop a number of food trend lists this year and we can’t wait for guests to experience SONIC’s uniquely delicious creation.”

OKLAHOMA CITY, 2016-Oct-03 — /EPR Retail News/ — SONIC® Drive-In (NASDAQ: SONC) introduces the new Fiery Ultimate Chicken Sandwich and Fiery Cheeseburger to heatseekers everywhere, adding to its menu of bold flavors. Both feature the daring new Fiery Sauce, adding an irresistibly spicy dimension to SONIC’s famous menu lineup.

SONIC’s Fiery Ultimate Chicken Sandwich boasts a premium thick-cut, all-white chicken fillet with a crispy golden outside, while the Fiery Cheeseburger starts with a 100% pure beef patty with diced onions. Both sandwich options are perfectly complemented with pepper jack cheese, sliced jalapenos, and our all-new red jalapeno spread, brought together between a warm Brioche buns. The one-of-a-kind red jalapeno spread is the secret to SONIC’s spicy savvy. It packs enough satisfying heat to crush cravings, while enhancing rather than overwhelming the delicious savory elements of the sandwich.

“Our customers look to SONIC to offer bold and spicy flavors, and the new Fiery sandwiches will not disappoint,” said Scott Uehlein, vice president of product innovation & development for SONIC. “The flavorfully spicy Fiery Sauce combines a fine-tuned blend of red jalapenos, peppers and spices to deliver a complex heat that really satisfies from the first bite to the last.”

The Fiery Ultimate Chicken Sandwich and Fiery Cheeseburger are no ordinary meals. They are carefully crafted to truly be the ultimate in spicy sandwiches – superior to others you’ll find in flavor and quality from top-to-bottom. But they are only available for a limited time, so get your spicy fix before they’re gone!
