Blended burger Sonic Slinger back for fall after rave summer reviews

Packer Review - Sonic Slinger

Sonic is bringing back its blended burger after a successful summer debut.

“Since its release earlier this year, the Sonic Signature Slinger has received overwhelmingly positive reception from Sonic fans, many of them sharing that the Slinger is perfectly sized and one of the best-tasting burgers around,” said Scott Uehlein, vice president of product innovation and development for Sonic. “The Slinger is something new, but accessible, and a delicious guilt-free option for a snack or entrée.

“Nearly half of the Sonic guests who purchased a Sonic Signature Slinger claimed it is extremely likely that they will return for another,” Uehlein said. “It performed so well that we’ve brought it back for the fall.”

The burger, which combines meat and diced mushrooms, is currently one of the options for the Carhop Classic bundle, which includes a burger and medium tots for $2.99. That offer is set to run through Oct. 28.

Retail editor Ashley Nickle and copy editor and designer Amelia Freidline reviewed the Slinger when it first came out this summer. The Packer also reported on how Sonic worked with the Mushroom Council to develop the burger.
