We tried Sonic’s new fried cookie dough bites. Here’s how it went
Properly called Fried Cookie Dough Bites à la Mode on the Sonic Drive-In menu, in that final menu item you’ll find—and lo and behold—according to Sonic’s own site: “Chocolate chip cookie dough, fried until golden brown and served with a side of real ice cream for dipping.” So that means, for the record, something like these ingredients for chocolate chip cookie dough, noting that we use a big national brand, Nestlē’s Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, to be precise, like reference ; we can’t be 100% sure what’s in the Sonic recipe, but it’s probably something like bleached wheat flour, sugar, chocolate, oils of all kinds and flavorings and preservatives. And more, but you get the picture.
As for vanilla ice cream, we’re going to assume that the ingredients listed in another fast food chain’s soft vanilla is a close comparison, since the ingredients in Sonic’s ice cream are notoriously hard to find. So let’s take a look at what’s in the app from that place you might have heard of called McDonald’s that easily divulges ingredients. And they are: “Milk, sugar, cream, corn syrup, natural flavor, mono and diglycerides, cellulose gum, guar gum, carrageenan, vitamin A palmitate.”
