Sour Candy Frozen Beverages

The Sonic Sour Patch Kids Slush Float is Cooling and Creamy

— May 25, 2022 — Lifestyle
The Sonic Sour Patch Kids Slush Float is a new menu item from the QSR brand for patrons to pick up this summer when seeking out a way to beat the heat. The drink features a watermelon-flavored slush paired with a topping of real vanilla ice cream and a sprinkling of Sour Patch Kids candy. The beverage is thus perfect for enjoyment on its own as a dessert drink for consumers to enjoy as the weather heats up.

The Sonic Sour Patch Kids Slush Float has been made available for consumers who use the brand's app where they can order it starting May 23 ahead of the wider launch taking place on May 30. Priced at $2.99 for a medium, the drink is available through July 31, 2022.
