Until a couple years back, Sonic did not exist in our neck of the woods. As most of you know, the Fatguyfoodblog crew resides in beautiful New Hampshire. While it's true we travel across all of New England on a whim to try new foods, before Sonic arrived in Massachusetts, we would have had to drive ten hours to bask in it's glory. One time, we did.
But then it finally made it's way here, and for the first few months we used to head down there almost weekly. True, the food isn't anything incredible, but it's good enough and I'll be damned if I'm not addicted to mixing different flavors together as far as drinks go. Once a group of us went and just kept buying drinks. I think our table had 27 different ones on it before we called it a night.
So I can assure you that when Sonic announced that they were throwing their hat in the mix of items with a pretzel bun, we wasted no time going to try it out. We made the hour long journey to taste the Sonic Cheesy Bacon Pretzel Dog!
|That's a lot of bacon on there huh?|
The first thing I noticed about the dog was that it was indeed piled high with bacon. Crispy, delicious bacon, with no blubber to be found. Nice work, Sonic.
|Yep, that's a pretzel bun alright...|
|Whole lot of good stuff going on right here...|
So in conclusion, I guess all I have to say about this dog is that...well, they need a better hot dog. Seriously, Sonic. EVERYTHING ELSE ABOUT THIS THING IS GREAT EXCEPT THE MAIN PART! With even a halfway decent hot dog in this thing I wouldn't have complained at all. But this thing was horrid. Perhaps I got a bad one, but Josh got one too and his was just as gross. If you were making excuses for Sonic, you might say that it was a bad batch? But where do you draw the line? I say Sonic needs a better dog.
I give the Sonic Cheesy Bacon Pretzel Dog a C-!
But hey, it doesn't even matter, I'll still swing in whenever I'm near a Sonic.
