Why I HATE Sonic's 99 cent Shakes.

This is actually a Public Service Announcement to the rest of the world. Noone realizes how BAD these things actually are. So I have devised a list to help educate my fellow Man (and Woman).

Why I HATE Sonic's 99 Cent Shakes:
  • They are ONLY 99 cents. That is less than a dollar, that means that you think that they are cheap so you go get them more often

  • Sonic is only a 1/2 mile from my Townhome. You know what this means... to get there you spend almost NO Gas. None. Nada.

  • They have a variety of flavors. So you never run out of ones to try. Like Banana. I like Banana. Who would have thought Banana's could taste yummy in shakes. Not Jen. Jen was not prepared for yummy tasting shakes with Banana.

  • Because they taste SO good. Actually their taste is even better than expected, because they only cost a buck. So while you sit there drinking it you keep thinking "Wow, this only cost a buck! I bet we could get another one tomorrow"

  • Because the Shake seems to "know" When I've had a bad day. It calls to me, it says, "Jen, I am here for you. I understand that you can't walk. I will help you feel better"

  • Because My Husband DOES NOT gain weight. He is a mutant. Yep, that's all there is to it. I married a Mutant Ice Cream Lover. He literally eats 2 FULL Servings of Ice Cream A Night! In fact, the other night he was drinking a Root Beer Float, when he decided that he should go get us shakes! Who can do that!! Oh the Humanity!

Oh I am so worked up now... I need a shake.

Either you were up late or up early today - it's only 8 a.m. and you've already posted on your blog. Gee, I'll have to try one of their shakes. Are they better than Steak and Shake? Homemade are my favorite but S&S are a close second! P.S. Had fun with the kids last night!

I liked to read your blog even before the drugs but you are especially funny now. I hope you are feeling better.

so funny! Thanks for informing me that they are only 99 cents. I live seconds away from one and now they will be beckoning me as well. Thanks I owe you one!

Maybe walking to get them would be good exercise... that way you can justify them physically too. Once you can walk again that is, or is that how you broke your ankle?

Well thanks Jen.... I live within walking distance AND I'm pregnant. This is trouble. What other flavors do they have???

I so agree...Sonic is right now the road for me, and I am a sucker for Happy Hour! Half off! Doesn't mean that I need it, but I want that yummy diet coke, cherry and lime combination that is so delish. Honestly, I have no control.

I just realized I can't spell, sorry!

I've never had a Sonic shake, but I love their commercials. Do you think the ice cream is low fat? I had an oreo shake at Chik fil A that was pretty delicious. I'm really tired and wish I could go take a nap now, but the kids are awake. Do you think that matters?

Denae,
They have Vanilla, Chocolate, Strawberry, Banana, Pineapple, Caramel. and I'm sure they have others too.

I also find myself trying new flavors, because it's only 99 cents. It's horrible. I hate them too.

Okay- bad news... I read your blog yesterday and later on last night I was craving a shake. Well, I went and got one.... they're NOT .99 cents anymore! BUMMER! I guess in the long run that is good for me! haha
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news!
