SONIC Brings Back Shark Week Slush Ahead of Annual Discovery Channel Event

In just a few days, Discovery's beloved tradition of Shark Week will be returning, delivering viewers an entire week of exciting and informative programs celebrating the iconic fish, which just so happens to coincide with some of the hottest days of the year. In honor of the event, SONIC is bringing back the perfect treat to help cool down viewers, as its Shark Week Slush has returned to locations across the country. The Shark Week Slush will be available for a limited time and while supplies last. Shark Week kicks off on Discovery Channel and discovery+ on Sunday, July 24th.

The Shark Week Slush lets fans feed their shark passion as they dive into a tropical diorama of icy blue coconut-flavored Slush topped with a layer of real strawberries and shark gummy candies. It's the perfect treat to cool you down while your screen heats up with intense shark footage.

"SONIC is thrilled to bring back our Shark Week Slush for the second summer in a row and help fans take a bigger bite – or sip – out of Shark Week," Mackenzie Gibson, vice president of culinary & menu innovation at SONIC, shared in a statement. "By layering our tropical, blue coconut Slush with real, juicy strawberries and shark gummy candies, our culinary team has created a tasty and visually thrilling treat that will mentally transport guests to their favorite oceanside destination. Just be sure to look out for sharks before diving in!"
