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.

I shall take gingerbread over mint any day and twice on Sunday.

If it's anywhere near as good as the Edy's g-bread ice cream, put me down for one.

Isn't "gingerbread" a lot like "pumpkin?" (i.e., it's the cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, etc. that everyone is really in love with and associates with Christmas.)

Twisted: If you're afraid of imbibing raw eggs, think most of the commercial eggng mixes use ones that have been pasteurized.

Jess:

I don't think it's the bacteria Twisted is concerned about, but the cholesterol, sugar, fat and alcohol.

I'm with the Captain on this. I do like me some gingerbread.

Some of the spices are indeed similar. What seperated the Edy's Pumpkin IC from the GB IC were the bits of cookie in a thouroughly cinnamon IC base. The pumpkin wasn't very pumpkin-y. Still good stuff though. If Sonic did a Pupmkin Pie thing that would be cool with me.

Thanks, Clairevoyant. I can't spell worth a shit, but I'll take Catherine Bach over Jessica Simpson any day of the week though. As for this concoction, there's usually not enough alcohol in eggnog to make it worth drinking all that fat. Plus, it makes me full and leaves less room for rum.

Twisted; What type of home do you come from that don't let you pour the bourbon into you own eggnog?

I come from a very sad home. My mother was always angry and wouldn't let us listen to the radio AT ALL.

That's fascinating. I come from a very sad home where the radio was very angry and it wouldn't let me listen to my mother AT ALL. But we always liked us some gingerbread.

My parents pretty much let me do anything I wanted. As long as it was in a penthouse suite or a private jet. I mean, why would anyone fly coach?
