The most important meal of the day just got a lot more interesting, as SONIC Drive-In (NASDAQ: SONC) today announced two exciting changes to its breakfast menu. Starting today, guests can substitute fluffy egg whites in any breakfast menu offering with eggs, including a wide variety of Breakfast Burritos and the ever-popular Breakfast Toaster Sandwiches. And now, they can pair their favorite breakfast with a cup of SONIC’s Red Button Roast coffee, made with 100 percent Arabica beans and customized with one of five new flavors.
It is widely known that egg whites are a good source of protein, helping to maintain energy levels throughout the day. Because they contain no cholesterol, egg whites are a good choice for individuals trying to reduce their cholesterol intake. Substituting egg whites for regular eggs in any of the SONIC breakfast items also reduces the total calorie count by up to 60 calories.
SONIC’s egg white offerings join a growing roster of “Better for You” menu items at SONIC. Earlier this year, SONIC launched a new line of Green Iced Tea with five new flavor mix-ins made without sugar, artificial flavors or artificial colors, upping the total number of reduced- or zero-calorie drink options to well over 20 thousand. In addition, SONIC is currently serving a grilled chicken sandwich on a whole wheat Ciabatta bun, packed with 10 grams of whole grains.
To further expand its breakfast, SONIC is raising the bar on coffee with its Red Button Roast blend and five new flavors for customization: Chocolate, Caramel, French Vanilla, Hazelnut and English Toffee. Guests can design the perfect brew to start the day or perk up in the afternoon since SONIC’s entire breakfast menu will continue to be available all day.
