Pulling inspiration from the cookie Americans love to twist and dunk, the new Double Stuf OREO Waffle Cone starts with a rich, chocolate cookie waffle cone coated on the inside with sweet OREO Creme. The next layer is SONIC’s signature Real Ice Cream topped with another layer of delicious OREO Creme, capped with crumbled Oreo pieces to create a whole new way to enjoy the delicious combination of crunchy chocolate cookies, sweet creme and smooth ice cream. Guests can also make it a Double Stuf Oreo Blast, blending all the ingredients together in a cup for a spoonable dessert.

“Everyone loves OREO cookies – they are such an iconic cookie with adoring fans – and deconstructing their classic flavor into something wholly new was a delight,” said Scott Uehlein, vice president of product innovation and development for SONIC. “Innovating all of the delicious elements that make the Double Stuf OREO gave our team the opportunity to deliver an entirely new way to experience the crunchy, smooth, sweet treat we’re all obsessed with.”

Starting at $2.49, SONIC’s Double Stuf OREO Waffle Cone and Double Stuf OREO Blast are available for a limited time only while supplies last. **
