What Else???
Sonic's Junior Banana Split
Friday, August 06, 2004

Don't be fooled. One embarrassment almost ruined the super-sweeg bargain. I'll tell you the whole story.

I've driven by Sonic a few times lately and noticed that they are now selling a Junior Banana Split for 99 cents. Oh, man. That is perfect. The regular split cost something like 2.30 or so. Whatever it is, I am sure that it is over 2 bucks. That's A-lot for a frugal fellow on a buget. So the 99 cents idea really grabbed me. Plus, Sonic's Banana Split is awesome. I had one a few months back. Now, I haven't had a Banana split in some 15 years, so it was real nostalgic and real good.

The Junior is set up like this. It is half of a banana halved and put in a tiny little serving dish. Not so tiny though. They then put some soft serve ice cream in there. It's hard to tell how much exactly. Soft serve doesn't really translate into scoops. It's enough though. Then come the three topping zones. Zone one is chocolate. Zone two strawberry. And Zone three is pineapple sauce and pieces.

IT IS SO GOOD.

The Junior is the perfect amount for a snack.

Here's the only thing you need to be warned of. Upon ordering, they asked if I'd like nuts. Yes - I did want nuts. Turns out that nuts cost an extra 10 cents. I brought exactly 1.06 with me, cause I figured that'd be the cost with sales tax. The nice young lady on skates waved the charge and I ate my meal feeling a little like a beggar, but it was worth the embarrassment.

Rating: 4.8 out of 5 plumpy waitresses on skates.
