Sonic Dresses Up the Hot Dog by Putting It in a Flaky Croissant

To mark National Hot Dog Month and hop on the croissant-hybrid food bandwagon, Sonic is introducing its new Croissant Dog.

Nothing says America like a hot dog nestled in a croissant. OK, that’s not even a little true, but it is an actual fact that you can enjoy that very unlikely combo — for a limited time only — at Sonic Drive-In restaurants.

In order to mark National Hot Dog Month (it’s July) and to hop on the croissant-hybrid food bandwagon, Sonic is introducing its new Croissant Dog, which the company is touting as “a reimagined and reinvented premium take on an American classic.”

A beef frankfurter nestled in a delicate, buttery, “refined and complex, yet approachable and scrumptious” croissant bun, the Croissant Dog comes topped with bacon, cheese and mustard (either spicy or regular — you choose). Because it is totally true that nothing says America like putting everything but the kitchen sink on your dog-dog-doggie!
