Adding a fresh twist to one of America’s favorite sandwiches, SONIC Drive-In is introducing two new Summertime BLTs with creamy basil aioli: The Summertime BLT and the Summertime Chicken BLT.

Topped with SONIC’s new creamy basil aioli, the Summertime BLT is gloriously stacked with crispy bacon, melty mozzarella cheese, hand-cut tomatoes, and crisp lettuce on a bakery-soft brioche bun. The Summertime Chicken BLT adds a lightly seasoned 100-percent all-white meat crispy chicken breast to the mix.

“By adding melty mozzarella cheese and creamy basil aioli to a sandwich where crispy bacon is the star, we’re creating a delicious symphony of flavors that’s perfect for the season,” said Scott Uehlein, Vice President of Product Innovation and Development for SONIC. “Try the Summertime BLT for an elevated version of the sandwich you know and love, or order the Summertime Chicken BLT to take it to a brand new level.”

The Summertime BLTs are only available while supplies last. Guests can be first in line, every time when ordering ahead with the SONIC app, available on Apple App Store and Google Play Store.*

Try either of the Summertime BLTs with a medium Sprite, half-off when guests order ahead on the mobile app, for a summertime meal that can’t be beat.

*Available at participating SONIC® Drive-Ins.
