Big News!!!


Today we found out that SONIC: America's Drive In is finally coming to North East Ohio. This is a pretty big deal to us because we currently do not have a Sonic within a 90 mile radius and we are always taunted by their commercials -- not only are they quirky and clever but the food just looks so damn good. We have even toyed with the idea of driving to the closest Sonic, but we were patiently waiting and hoping that one day their fine establishment would grace us with a location nearby. . .

We are happy to announce that this day will arrive next summer when a Sonic opens in Streetsboro (which is kind of funny because we *never* thought we would ever be excited about anything that is located in that particular city).

Upon learning that Sonic was coming to our neck of the woods, of course we felt the need to blog about it. And, thus wanting to include the Sonic commercial where they make fun of bloggers -- however, we were unable to locate it on you tube. What we did discover was there is an entire sub-culture of people creating their own parodies of Sonic commercials where even the two main "Sonic guys" acknowledge this and encourage it. As far as the specific commercial we wanted to post, actually did find the transcript of it here.

The below Sonic commercial is our second favorite :)

I hope your Sonic experience is better than mine. We have a Sonic less than .5 mile from where we live and 6 others in town. The food is not at all what you would think it to be from the commercials. Greasy is a good word to describe it. If you do an online search for their menus and look at the calorie count for some of their offerings...you will be shocked. They do have a good Strawberry/Banana Fruit Smoothie but at 750 calories and 200 carbs/sugars...I will pass on it from now on and make mine at home.

There is a new website promoting the new Streetsboro, Ohio Sonic Drive-In. The Streetsboro location is going to be the first of a number of locations being added to the Northeast Ohio regions.

Patty, it seems that you are just talking down Sonic. THere food is good and they seem to carry different stuff then the other fast food joints. Of course, that is your opinion that I do not agree with at all. I can't wait for this to open and I am hoping that other start to pop us soon.

Hi Patty,
From your comments it seems that you should not even think of going to any fast-food restaurant, if you are that health-conscious. All of the chains offer high-calorie choices, even those that claim to have healthy offerings.
