Peanut Butter Bacon Supersonic Double Cheeseburger

When was the last time a fast food restaurant offered a cheeseburger that had peanut butter and bacon as its toppings? Well, lucky for us all as that trivia question can now be easily answered thanks to Sonic releasing their Peanut Butter Bacon Supersonic Double Cheeseburger!

While the name being as big as it is, it might almost sound like a tongue twister if you start saying it fast enough. Hopefully in our first bite it will pack just as big of a punch when it comes to taste. 

One important detail to those that are contemplating if this burger is for them, just remember this one of a kind item is only available for a limited time until February 4th. While Sonic has a plethora of items to choose from on their menu,

I feel this is an absolute must for cheeseburger fans as well as those that experience FOMO (fear of missing out).

So lets go buy the new burger!

Buying Sonic’s peanut butter bacon supersonic double cheeseburger

You can order the Peanut Butter Bacon Supersonic Double Cheeseburger online through the Sonic’s app or other fast food delivery options. Naturally you can always visit your local Sonic in person or swing by their drive thru. I figured I would just drive over to the Sonic near my house, since it is only 5 minutes away.

Now I do not know how many others have experienced this, but I have yet to have a decent overall experience picking up my food at a Sonic. 

After pulling up to one of those individual Sonic kiosks, I pushed the red button and proceeded to wait. Their drive thru had 1 car and only 2 more of those kiosks had cars parked, which is why I could not wrap my head around why it took about 15 minutes for them to take my order.

Nonetheless the associate to whom I gave my order to and the associate that eventually brought the food to me were very courteous. I wanted to try just the burger so I went ahead and placed my order which after tax came out to $8.32.

My food eventually came after another 20 minutes and I was ready to finally head back home after camping at my local Sonic for about 35 minutes.

Now it’s time to try the food~

How Does Sonic’s peanut butter bacon supersonic double cheeseburger look like


Right from the get go my Sonic bag felt decently heavy so I was excited to see the end product. After taking the burger out of the bag even with the foil still on, I saw that it was indeed a pretty massive burger.

Did it look like it was advertised by Sonic? No it definitely did not look as advertised, however, its appearance was very close to what they had intended. 

The bun was toasted really well without any bruising on either side. More often than not you have burgers where the top bun is glued onto the meat patty or cheese, but I am glad that was not the case this time. After flipping the top bun, you could see the nicely caramelized white onions.


The next visual was the 3 bacon strips mixed in with more onions and a very light brown glaze which I found out was the peanut butter. I was surprised at how crispy the bacon was as if they had just taken it out of the fryer! The two beef patties looked pretty decent and dense visually.

Each beef patty sits over a slice of American cheese which it helps to melt and blend for a more wholesome bite.

Honestly, it looked pretty good so lets go try it!

How Does Sonic’s peanut butter bacon supersonic double cheeseburger taste like


From the very first bite to 10 bites into eating, I can safely say each bite was quite flavorful and meatilicious! Biting through the buns was quite the treat, as they were soft like a pillow yet had a slightly crispy exterior given that they were toasted.

Right after that you get a good bite of the caramelized onions. They had just the right amount of caramelization and at the perfect quantity.

I have noticed on many occasions that associates at fast food chains that are preparing these burgers get a little too excited and either over grill the onions which leads to a slightly bitter taste.

Other times they pack the onions like its a buffet and then you have this overly sweet tasting component which takes away from the meat or other items being eaten. 

I read the nutritional values for this burger and was expecting to taste the overuse of salt, however, I was pleasantly surprised as I bit into those beef patties at how subtle it was.

You can tell the patties were premade given how dense each one was, but that did not interrupt the overall enjoyable experience.


Some folks prefer fresh patties from ground beef which would appear to taste a little more airy and light, but I personally love these densely packed patties to provide a more fulfilling bite!

Each of those bites are then packed with even more flavor thanks to all that melted cheese! When I finished exactly half of my burger, I just had to visually reinspect my burger and all but one item was clearly visible. 

The biggest issue I have with this cheeseburger is that the flavor of the main item being promoted, peanut butter, was hardly noticeable.

I questioned myself if what I had tasted earlier was actually peanut butter, and lo and behold there was the thinnest layer present right above the first beef patty.

You could ask for more peanut butter but that requires an add on charge.

It’s a decent burger for what it is, but when you’re going to call it the Peanut Butter Bacon Supersonic Double Cheeseburger, you would expect there to be WAY MORE Peanut Butter.

How CAN Sonic’s peanut butter bacon supersonic double cheeseburger BE IMPROVED


I honestly feel all the components in this cheeseburger from the melted cheese to the super crispy bacon fit so well overall. One thing I wish I did was add lettuce and tomatoes to my burger, but that in no way changes how well the rest of the burger is designed.

The nonexistent amount of peanut butter added to the burger could easily be corrected. Granted the size of this burger was pretty massive, paying a little over $8.00 is a bit of a stretch. 

So hopefully it was just my location that dropped the ball and others will actually make it right.

Because being called a Peanut Butter Bacon Supersonic Double Cheeseburger, you definitely want the taste of Peanut Butter with each and every bite.

Overall Thoughts

Considering Sonic’s Peanut Butter Bacon Supersonic Double Cheeseburger is only here for a limited time, this is an absolute must try for cheeseburger lovers! Besides lowering the price, I would also recommend to make sure when you buy this for yourself or for someone else, to make sure your burger actually has enough peanut butter inside it.

Because that’s the star of the show.

Either way, it was a pretty good burger for what it is and everyone should definitely give it a try.

Overall Rating: 7.8

Hopefully your wait time experience will be a fraction of mine. Go get it for yourself before it is gone!
