‘Pancake on a Stick’ Is Making a Comeback at Sonic This Spring

A fan favorite from the early 2000s will grace the menu again

Could this throwback breakfast item boost sales at Sonic?

Breakfast will be made easy again with the return of Sonic Drive-In’s formerly discontinued “Pancake on a Stick” in the early spring, the company’s CEO Cliff Hudson told Business Insider.

Pancake on a Stick looks similar to a corndog, but is instead a sausage on a stick wrapped in a pancake. The popular menu item was first introduced in 2002, but was taken off the menu a few years later. Since then, Sonic fans have taken to Facebook and Twitter to mourn the loss of their favorite Sonic breakfast treat.

Sonic isn’t the only fast-food chain to reintroduce an old fan favorite — Burger King brought back chicken fries after fans also demanded the item back on social media. Chicken fries were also introduced in the early 2000s, but were discontinued in 2012. In 2015, the item was brought back to the menu and helped drive sales, Business Insider reported.
