Looks like Sonic has joined the "Bigger is Better" race to Obesity!
Who makes Sonic's Hot Dogs anyway?
A deeper question would be, will the other Hot Dog Makers, Sabrett's et al, join the the frenzy?
Will all our Hot Dog Cart Brethern demand a foot long? Will Carts need to be reconfigured?? And what about the Bun People?
Is the Hot Dog Apocalypse upon us??
OKLAHOMA CITY, June 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Just in time to celebrate National Hot Dog Month, SONIC®, America's Drive-In®, introduces its new and improved Footlong Quarter Pound Coney, a juicy, plump footlong hot dog topped with warm chili and melty cheese.
"SONIC's Coney has been a customer favorite for years," said Dominic Losacco, vice president of marketing for SONIC. "As part of SONIC's ongoing initiative to improve the quality of our products, we've made some significant changes to our signature SONIC entree to make it even tastier."
The new and improved Footlong Quarter Pound Coney is a blend of beef and pork and boasts a bigger size than ever before, weighing in at a quarter pound. The classic coney toppings of chili and cheese round out this entree that is reminiscent of summer picnics, baseball games and family gatherings.
