Donít get me wrong Ė I love Sonic. Anywhere I can order delicious tater tots from the comfort of my car has a special place in my heart. But, I am very disappointed with their new Peanut Butter & Bacon Shake. What could have been a delicious flavor combination (assuming you like both peanut butter and bacon, as I do) is instead so lackluster that I didnít even finish the medium shake I ordered. I donít think I have ever left a milkshake unfinished. Even when I bought a massive (44-ounce??) shake at Humdinger Drive-In in Portland, Oregon, and I knew that I would surely regret drinking that much milkshake, I still drank it all. But, I threw out the last quarter or so of the Sonic Peanut Butter & Bacon Shake because it just wasn't worth the calories. The main problem with the shake is that it has almost no bacon flavor. There are some tiny pieces of bacon mixed in, but they donít really have any flavor themselves and apparently didnít release any flavor into the shake either. It really just tastes like a peanut butter shake, and not even a very good one at that. Even if it was just a peanut butter milkshake, Iím not sure I could recommend it. Maybe it was just too ambitious of Sonic to try and combine peanut butter with bacon. I give them credit for trying, but still must recommend that you donít waste your money on this shake.
