These new mashups will have all your friends talking, and they’re only available for four weeks starting January 8

Resolve to indulge your tastebuds this year with the wildest flavor combination yet from SONIC® Drive-In! For a limited time at drive-ins nationwide starting January 8, guests can experience the unique pairing of peanut butter and bacon with the new Peanut Butter Bacon SuperSONIC® Double Cheeseburger and the Peanut Butter Bacon Shake. These flavors may sound too extreme, but don’t knock ‘em until you try ‘em!

Bacon makes everything better, and it’s the perfect savory, crunchy complement to sweet and creamy peanut butter! SONIC is bringing this combination fans didn’t even know they needed to its iconic cheeseburger lineup with the Peanut Butter Bacon SuperSONIC® Double Cheeseburger, with two 100% pure beef patties layered with creamy peanut butter, crispy bacon, grilled onions, and melty cheese on a toasted bakery bun.

For guests craving a sweet and savory dessert that is sure to be the highlight of your week, the new Peanut Butter Bacon Shake mixes peanut butter and crispy bacon with vanilla soft serve and adds whipped topping and a cherry for the perfect balance of flavors in every sip.

“Peanut butter and bacon is not a combination you’d expect on a cheeseburger, and you definitely wouldn’t think to combine these flavors into a shake, but at SONIC, we ignore what everyone else considers normal to deliver innovation that’ll make guests shout, ‘Hell yeah, SONIC!’,” said Mackenzie Gibson, Vice President of Culinary & Menu Innovation at SONIC. “We did it once with the Pickle Juice Slush, and we’re doing it again with this latest ‘this-seems-weird-but-I-have-to-try-it’ combination that you can experience either on a cheeseburger or in a shake.”

Available January 8 through February 4, while supplies last, the Peanut Butter Bacon SuperSONIC® Double Cheeseburger starts at $6.39 and the Peanut Butter Bacon Shake starts at $3.99 for a medium.
