I Did It!


So I've been looking at the Fried Ice Cream Blasts on the Sonic menu ALL summer but I just couldn't ever get myself to take the plunge and get one!
So I don't know what it was about tonight - maybe the wind, maybe the arrangement of the stars, maybe just my ridiculous sweet tooth - whatever it was, I was just feeling it tonight. So after youth group, I drove to Sonic and bought a Sonic Fried Ice Cream Blast. And it was more than what I could have ever wished for. Truly...delectable. It was worth all 630 calories and 76 grams of sugar (...HA! yeah...when searching for a picture to put on the blog, I ran across the Sonic menu nutrition info. remind me to never look at that again). Anyway, if you like ice cream and you like crunchy cinnamon things, you must go get one of these before they leave the menu. They'll change your life.
An interesting observation: for some reason, when eating something super unhealthy, it feels even more unhealthy when I'm eating it by myself. Maybe because I feel like I'm doing some sort of naughty thing in secret instead of doing it with other people, for all to see. haha...I don't know. Maybe next time I'll go in the middle of Sonic and announce to all around that I'm about to consume 76 grams of sugar and then I'll feel better about it. I don't know...I'm talking crazy right now.

That totally sounds great right now. I wish we were back at the Lincoln house sitting around eating one of those.

Love it...I may have one today. They also have very good Iced Mochas. No way am I checking calorie content on that baby.

love, beth

They are ridiculously good and have changed my life as well - and possibly my thighs.

I however did not have quite the restraint you have demonstrated by waiting all summer. I dove in the second I saw it up on the menu! Yum!

hmm i had one of those over here at the ghetto sonic and wasn't so impressed. i wasn't impressed with the almost 10 minutes it took to get it either. moore's lane is my favorite sonic...is that the one you went to? by the way, hey! i read your blog. :)

Melanie! I didn't know you had a blog. I am so happy for that reason, and because your fried ice cream blast story reminds of myself a couple of years ago when Sonic came out with the cookie dough blast. I had my eye on it for a long time and finally one day decided to try it, and yes it was life changing. I think you just convinced me to try the ice cream one too...I will pretend not to remember the calories and fat info!
