Sonic Drive-In officially entered the hard seltzer game with brand new Sonic Hard Seltzers last summer. Coming in two different variety 12-packs, Tropical and Citrus, flavors include ocean water, orange pineapple, mango guava, melon medley, cherry limeade, classic lemonade, lemon berry and original limeade. The seltzers have 100 calories, 1 gram of sugar, and a 5% ABV per serving.
Now, finally, they’re available across nearly half the country. Previously only available in seven markets, you can now find Sonic Hard Seltzer in 21 new states: Alabama, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Iowa, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, North Carolina, New Mexico, Nevada, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia. Additionally, Missouri residents are now able to get their hands on Sonic Hard Seltzer in St. Louis.
The Sonic hard seltzer joins a lineup of other products featuring Sonic’s flavors at mass, grocery and specialty stores, including a pre-workout drink mix, gelatin and pudding mixes, and frozen ice pops. The Sonic slush pops include iconic flavors like ocean water, cherry limeade and strawberry lemonade, while freezer bar flavors are ocean water and strawberry lemonade.
Sonic also joined up with Slim Jim to create a new flavor of the classic meat stick: Sonic Chili Cheese Coney Slim Jim. Available at Walmart and select convenience stores, the new Slim Jim flavor features 11 grams of protein per stick and is available in individually-wrapped, monster-sized 1.94-ounce sticks.
If the flavors of Sonic’s new hard seltzer aren’t to your liking, however, there are so many other hard seltzers on the market that you shouldn’t have any trouble finding one you can enjoy.
Michelob Ultra released a line of organic hard seltzers, PBR has their own version with 8% alcohol and Barefoot even has a hard seltzer for wine lovers. These are made with real wine and come in four flavors: pineapple & passionfruit, cherry & cranberry, peach & nectarine and strawberry & guava.
