Sonic describes their shake as "An indulgent hand-mixed shake made with real ice cream, real pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon blended with pie crust pieces, finished with whipped topping and more pie crust pieces." (Source)

Anyway, I finally got my milkshake. It's in a cool cup that I'm pretty certain is meant to immulate the look of real tin cups that you find at an authentic diner. Think Nifty Fifties.

The pie pieces were a bit annoying. They kept getting stuck in the straw. I would stop to let them fall out, then try again. Pie pieces in a Blizzard = good. Pie pieces in a milkshake you're meant to drink = bad idea. If I had a spoon, this wouldn't have been a problem. I don't know why I didn't anticipate this! They need to provide extra-wide straws for these type of shakes.
15 mintues and a ton of calories later, I arrived at daycare feeling quite full! I didn't completely finish it, I have to admit. 14 ounces is a LOT of shake. Would I buy it again? Maybe next year! Can't afford to drink 600+ calories on a regular basis. :-)
PROS: Delicious, thick, perfect whipped cream, spicy
CONS: Super thick, pie crusts get stuck in straw, more calories than my average dinner
