I've got a Sonic cup in front of me now, all retro Eisenhower-looking postwar graphics in turquoise and mustard.
Guess which of these "American classics" you can no longer get at Sonic:
- caramel mocha java chiller
- m&m sonic blast
- grape creamslush chiller
- cranberry, raspberry, or peach iced tea
- jr fritos chili cheese wrap
- chicken bacon ranch sandwich
- a malt
Seriously, who made this decision? It's not like malted milk is expensive, hard to work with, expires quickly, etc. It's a relatively cheap commodity powder that sits in a bin until you need it. You put a scoop in and stir. Done. I worked for sonic when I was a high school kid and made a kabillion shakes and malts. It's not hard. Arrghhhh!
