Sonic debuts Churro Shake, returns Bursting Bubbles for limited time

Crispy snacking churros also added to menu

Sonic Drive-In debuted a Churro Shake, capitalizing on the popularity of the dessert. In addition, the QSR chain also started offering crispy churros for $1.49 on its Summer Snacking Menu. Plus, Sonic returned Bursting Bubbles in its fizzy Cherry Burst and icy Cherry Burst Slush, and as a beverage add-on.

The Sonic Summer Snacking Menu is offered exclusively on the Sonic App. Options reflect seasonal and returning favorites, offered at a value.

To prepare the Churro Shake, Sonic restaurants combine real vanilla ice cream with caramel and cinnamon sugar, and blend the ingredients, then top them with a cinnamon sugar churro, whipped topping and a cherry.

“Sonic is known for the wide variety of flavors and mix-in options for our drinks and shakes, so infusing the churro experience into a shake was something we knew our fans would love,” said Mackenzie Gibson, vice president of culinary & menu innovation at Sonic. “Our Churro Shake is truly a churro you can sip and dip, from the cinnamon sugar sprinkled into the shake to the churro on top, creating a flavorful experience that will have your taste buds dancing until the last drop!”

Bursting Bubbles also return for a limited time at Sonic. Guests will be able to add bursts of cherry flavor to any of Sonic’s beverages for an add-on charge. Bursting Bubbles are featured in the fizzy Cherry Burst and the icy Cherry Burst Slush.


The Sonic Churro Shake and Bursting Bubbles beverages will remain available at participating Sonic Drive-In locations through September 25th, while supplies last. Participating Sonic Drive-Ins will carry the Churro Shake starting August 1. However, Sonic App users can get early access starting July 25 when ordering online or through the app.

What’s more, Sonic donates a portion of each drink sale to support local public schools through Limeades for Learning.
