We All Scream for Sonic's Real Ice Cream!

Want a fun way to end your summer? Have an ice cream social with friends! Sonic gave me a gift card so my family could try out their real ice cream. We invited some friends and made a night of it a few weeks back. I looooove me some Sonic! I'm pretty sure I could live on their strawberry limeades and tots. They've got yummy real ice cream, not the fake stuff that some places serve. Four words - coconut cream pie shake! I know! And don't forget about their root beer floats! Nothing says summer like a good old-fashioned root beer float. And the best part about having an ice cream social at Sonic is - you don't have to clean your house and backyard and there are no sticky ice cream messes to clean up afterwards. Yep, that's me, always thinking.





My kids and their "cousins" (my best friend's kids)


Mmmm root beer floats!


It's a cup of plain vanilla for the little ones. I know, they're exciting.


She ended up wearing more than she ate, I think.

i have never been to a sonic shame on me!

Anjie said...

I love the banana splits from Sonic! I love it even more when it is a Jr. sized one. Just enough yum to satisfy, but not enough calories to add too many lbs to my hips.

Allison said...

Chocolate and peanut butter...mmm.

Michelle said...

I never met an ice cream I didn't like. I'm happy with anything, whatever is available works for me.

smarti said...

I love a peanut butter and hot fudge shake from Sonic. It is my favorite ice cream treat!

p.s. Brooklyn looks so glamourous in her ice cream shot (even with a little vanilla on her face).

KarenKal said...

chocolate ice cream with m&m's and peanut butter cup. OH, now, I want one. Have to go out and get one tonight! YUMMY!

Chick Hatchers said...

My favorite ice cream concoction?

Either chocolate plain or vanilla w/ hot fudge, all on a brownie, topped w/ whipped cream.

I'm boring, I know.

Brooke said...

One summer Sonic had a Peach Flurry, and I LOVED it... I'm not sure I've had an ice cream I didn't like.

Kari in CO said...

my favorite ice cream of all time is Ben and Jerry's Phish Food. At Sonic, I love their banana cream shake! MMMmmmm

Nikki said...

My favorite ice cream is chocolate with hot fudge rippled throughout. Yummy!

kellibunny said...

Well, it's hard to think about ice-cream at a time like this- currently dealing with gastrointestinal issues-but :) I love their Oreo blast with whipped cream and extra Oreos. Someday I'll have one again! :)

Jennifer Foster said...

I make a little shake out of breyers carb smart vanilla and some milk. Trying to be goooooood!!!

Love the Choc Cream Pie Shake.

Any ice cream is good to me. I pretty much lived on it when I was prego with the oldest.

Terri said...

I like the twisted ice cream treat with M & Ms. But of course, you can never go wrong with a Hot Fudge Sundae.

Chantel said...

Favorite ice cream is mint chocolate chip, but Jr banana split is my fave from Sonic :)

my3texasboys said...

Love just a regular sundae with caramel drizzled all over it.

Dawn said...

We just had Sonic open close enough for us to visit this summer. We love the tots and going for any of the slushes during happy hour.

Favorite ice cream in this household is mint chocolate chip, although that coconut cream pie shake that you mentioned sounds yummy.

Colleen said...

I've only been to Sonic once. I didn't have ice cream. Shame on me, I know. But I do know that I enjoyed their food.

Valerie said...

If I had to pick just one I think it would be a banana split. But there are so many yummy options!!

Shannon said...

My favorite is cookies and cream ice cream. Now if you are talking Sonic~~ a lemonaide slush is delish!!

Anonymous said...

I love their blue coconut slush!! Here in Oregon if you go between 2-4 you get all drinks and slushes 1/2 off.... I was so glad when Sonic came to Oregon:)

Michelle said...

I love a hot fudge sundae.

Myranda said...

My favorite is the Strawberry Cream Pie shake from Sonic! (It's a tight competition between that and the Coconut Cream Pie shake.)

Mandy in Temperance MI said...

I lOVE Banana Splits. The ice cream place by my house makes it with vanilla ice cream covered in pineapple, strawberry ice cream cover in strawberry and chocolate ice cream covered in cherries...topped with wipeed crean and walnuts yum yum

Sandy in Illinois said...

I'm anxious to try Sonic. Haven't been there yet. But keep talking about the need to get over there one of these days. Sandy

Kris said...

Mmm... what ISN'T good at Sonic? NOTHING! Love their cream pie shakes (especially coconut).

Bekah said...

My favorite is a Sonic Butterfinger Blast or a Blended float made with their Grape Slush! Mmmmm, gotta love Sonic!! :-)

Stormimay said...

I have really fallen hard for their limeade chillers. Yum.

Lisa said...

I love Sonic - especially happy hour drinks (what a great deal!). My favorite ice cream is mint chocolate chip, or butter pecan, or cookie dough - wait, I like them all. I love the $1 size Sonic candy ice cream sundae cup thingys.

kellyH said...

mmmmm, I love just about any ice cream concoction! banana splits with real strawberries, caramel, & chocolate are a fave!

Simple Country Girl said...

I have never had sonic ice cream but ice cream is my weakness! I will have to try some next time we visit Sonic.

Cara! said...

my favorite is anything ice cream! we love it at my house!

Denise ~ Paper Ponderings said...

My favorite ice cream is marionberry crunch...I think. How do I choose just one? Funny story though...my 16 yo daughter got to go to Sonic on a trip without us...and called from CA to OR to ask her grandma what that yummy shake was that she'd had once before...it was the coconut cream pie shake!!! I want one!

Garima said...

I have never had Sonic.......well for me.. Nothing beats good old chocolate!

petunia6348 said...

Sonic's Butterfinger Blast is the BEST! Crunchy, creamy, YUMMY!

Jennifer said...

I love sonic. I have recently enjoyed their s'mores shake. It is delightful.

I love sonic's chocolate ice cream and french fries. I dip my french fries in my icecream! Try it, it's yummy!!

Melissa Lindsey said...

I LOVE Sonic's Campfire Blast Shake. Too bad it's only around for the summer.

Anonymous said...

I like pretty much any ice cream that doesn't have fruit or nuts in it. Right now, my favorite is neapolitan, but the strawberry has to have a really fake strawberry flavor, like the taste of a fast food strawberry shake!

Rebecca

Sue daisy said...

any oreos in ice cream, that's the best... and a chocolate dipped cone, that cracks and melted ice cream drips out the crack all over your hands... yum

Gwyneth said...

chocolate chip cookie dough, or banana split yum!! Shoot who am I kidding, I kinda don't care as long as it's icecream!! *grin*

pednurse said...

Vanilla with strawberry Quick mix on top. :)

marythemom said...

Hot fudge sundae with bananas. It's not on the menu anymore, but they will still make it if you ask! Delish!!

beth said...

I love their chocolate malts!

Meredith said...

Right now, my favorite ice cream treat from Sonic is the Campfire Blast. It seriously tastes like a s'mores and even a little Christmasy to me.

Peggy said...

Absolutely have to have a Sonic banana split every week of summer!

Kim Williams said...

My favorite at Sonic is the one where it is orange slush mixed with their ice cream. I can't believe I don't remember the name of it, but it is so good I could have one every day.

La Bella Baskets said...

Sonic just opened near us, I can't wait to try it. Jamoca Almond Fudge ice cream is the best!

Deirdrea said...

I love the orange cream slush! It tastes JUST like an orange creamsicle from when I was growing up. Such an awesome memory comes with that drink!

MariaA said...

Yes, could I please have 1 oreo blast.... with extra, extra oreos.. Oh, and a side of tots. :) I LOVE SONIC!

Anonymous said...

Butterfinger Blast is my fave!!

Rhonda said...

A classic sundae-vanilla ice cream (slightly melted), hot fudge, whip cream, nuts and a cherry. Oh my!!! Just thinking of it means I have to run an extra mile.

Ellie said...

Reeces Peanut Butter Cups blast with extra reeces and extra whipped cream. I don't even want to think about the calories when I eat this (at least once a week!).

Denise said...

Anything with chocolate, peanut butter, and reeses cups is a BIG hit at our house! Sonic Rocks!

pmerry said...

I love their root beer floats.

Lesan said...

I love, love, love the new S'mores shake! My 3 yr old loves anything with ice cream.

Vicki said...

Oh man, so hard to pick just one. I love hot fudge milkshakes and my kids go bonkers for the grape cream-slushes. Those are real treats for them...only get it when they have been to the doctor and/or have sore throat...lol

Anissa said...

I've only had the Limeades at Sonic (cran is my fav!) but I do like chocolate ice cream w/ raspberry topping (not sure if that's an option there but I love it).

Erin said...

Vanilla ice cream, with chocolate something or other mixed in.

Melissa said...

I'm kind of boring...vanilla ice cream but lots of hot fudge!

Sori said...

any flavor of icecream served on top of a toaster waffle with sliced bananas... it's way better then a cone.

Angie H. said...

Love the banana splits and their unsweet tea... :)

Michelle said...

In my house, anything that's chocolate is good :)

Anonymous said...

I Love the Root Beer Floats. yummy to the tummy and thru the lips to the hips. Okie Nana

We always make a big event out of Sonic's free root beer float night.
Yummy!

B said...

Peanut butter and chocolate!! OMG, soooo good!

Tara M said...

BROWNIE, PEANUT BUTTER AND CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM

Beth said...

Chocolate and peanut butter :)

Lisa said...

I tend to order the freezes at Sonic. My lactose issues keep me from enjoying ice cream in quantity :-( But that coconut cream pie creation you mention sounds like it might be worth it. Hubby goes for the Choc/Peanut Butter combo. Mmmmm... now I want a Sonic freeze..... hm.... do I have any errands to run across town today?

Missi said...

Banana Splits are my fave! With no cherries though.

I blogged about it here http://sandlsmom.blogspot.com/2010/08/sonic-gift-card-contest.html

Gwen said...

I haven't been to sonic in a while now but they use to have peanut butter shakes even though they weren't on the menu anymore... that was my favorite.

Keeslermom said...

Uhg! No ice cream for me, but I'm addicted to a big styro cup of strawberry sprite. I love taking my kids to the drive through during "happy hour". They get slushies, I get my fix, and all is well in the world!

Krissy said...

mmmm I love Rootbeer floats!

Southern Girl said...

I love vanilla ice cream with chocolate syrup on it, which I then stir up until I have soft serve chocolate ice cream. It's the best!

Janna said...

My four boys would think they had died and gone to heaven to be able to have an ice cream party "just because!" Btw I stole your pop tart pbj idea for the boys' first day of school lunches and they were a huge hit! Thanks for the great idea!

Vanilla ice cream...with a candy bar mixed in...as long as the candy bar has chocolate, we'll be good.

DeeDee said...

We recently got a Sonic in our area (OK, 30 minutes away but it's worth the drive!) and my husband and kids are in LOVE with it! Their caramel shakes and chocolate malts are so good that I am willing to wreck my diet to have one!

Kyla said...

I like plain vanilla and to go super wild - add a little hot fudge on top!

Julie said...

Mint chocolate chip ice cream...yummy!
