This Is The Most Unhealthy Item You Can Get At Sonic

Fast food, it must be said, can be an incredible source of comfort after a rough day, as you might need to turn to something familiar that is fuss-free and reliable. One of the oldest brands that fits the bill? Sonic Drive-In. According to Mental Floss, Sonic has a massive presence in the U.S. with outlets in more than 45 states. Per Thrillistthe brand is well-known for its varied milkshake options such as chocolate, vanilla, caramel, hot fudge, and strawberry, coupled with a combination of crazy flavors such as peanut butter and bacon.

On the flip side, Sonic Drive-In's burgers, fries, and hot dogs are not great for your health. Per Very Well Fitsome of the worst things you can opt for at Sonic include the Ultimate Meat and Cheese Breakfast Burrito, Chili Cheese Tots, and the Sonic Blast with M&Ms. A Yahoo piece called Sonic the most unhealthy fast food chain, pointing out that at least half of its food items contain saturated fat and many burgers amount to more than 1,000 calories.

On that note, what is the worst food item you can order from Sonic in terms of your health? Here's what you need to know.  

Sonic's Bacon Double Cheeseburger is loaded with sodium

Per The Daily Meal, one of the worst things that you can order at any Sonic Drive-In restaurant is the SuperSonice Bacon Double Cheeseburger with mayonnaise. It is overloaded with calories — you are looking at 1,240 calories for each serving. Yikes. Additionally, there are 87 grams of fat with 35 grams of saturated fat, 265 milligrams of cholesterol, and 1,690 milligrams of sodium. And yes, that makes it an extremely unhealthy option for you.

Need a more brutal picture? As TheStreet puts it, the total number of calories are more than half of what you should be eating in a single day. Gulp. Even if you try tweaking it and eliminate bacon from the meal, you are still looking at more 1,000 calories. Do yourself a favor and skip this option at Sonic. Spoon University recommends opting for something like the Classic Grilled Chicken Sandwich or The Chicago Dog for a healthier meal.
