Sonic gingerbread blast
Sonic = Okla-spawned chain with 3K+ branches and outdoor carhop-style service.
Blast = thick shake made with soft-serve ice cream, not unlike DQ's Blizzard (which btw has not just a slew of flavors but also a monthly flavor, this month’s being Merry Mint Chip.) (hey, it’s a 2-for-1 blog item.)
And it's on to today’s theme: Sonic’s gingerbread blast. The description duzzn't sound that hot (crumbled-up gingerbread cookies blended into vanilla i.c.), but the drink merits a nod becuz 1. it’s new and 2. it’s gingerbread, which seems 2B trending up as THE holiday flavor, perhaps even toppling the previously-established MINT.
