Sonic / charge different price then advertised

1 Lufkin, TX, United States Review updated:

Sonic advertises a price for its shakes and blasts all varietys and flavors and then when you order and get your bill they have charged you 25 cents extra for say the chocolate flavor in the chocolate shake. What is a blast without the stuff in it? just whipped ice crem. I feel like this is false pricing which is against the law.

    I've been employed by Sonic for 3 years as an assistant manager. The way our system processes an order is it takes a base item and you add things on, customizing. So when you got your blast, say an Oreo blast as an example, the menu price may be 2.49 for a regular size. At my store we may charge 2.29 for the blast which is basically the ice cream, the cup, the lid, the spoon, napkins, etc. Then below that it will say Oreo which has a .20cent charge which totals up to 2.49. Double check to make sure that isn't the case for you.
