Mushrooms in the News: 3-2-18

SONIC officially announced the release of their SONIC Slinger – the first blended burger to be served at fast food restaurants nationwide. Top trade and consumer publications including Nation’s Restaurant News, Restaurant Business, QSR, Food Beast, Manhattan Digest and more featured the news.

The Packer gave a nice nod to the Council regarding the SONIC news, noting “The Council has been instrumental in helping foodservice perfect recipes that use the meat-mushroom mix.”

Food Beast says: “The blended burger patties give SONIC and the Signature Slingers a new role in the fast food industry. The chain is now leading the charge amongst major QSRs when it comes to healthy innovation thanks to this burger, which lowers cost and calories while retaining flavor.”

In preparation for the launch, SONIC has been serving up Signature Slingers in the streets of NYC yesterday and today from their food truck. The Slinger will be available nationwide on March 5.

The February Blenditarian Challenge ended with another round of newly pledged blenditarians and inspirational social shares, including the five winners:
