OKLAHOMA CITY — New menu items at Sonic Drive-In are getting a crunch from Fritos corn chips from Frito-Lay North America Inc., a division of PepsiCo Inc. The limited-time offerings include Fritos Chili Pie, Fritos Chili Cheese Jr. Wrap and the Fritos Chili Cheese Jr. Burger. Each combines Fritos chips, chili and cheddar cheese. The wrap features the ingredients rolled inside an 8-in. flour tortilla, and the burger adds a Fritos chili cheese topping to a beef patty served on a bakery-style bun.
“The bold flavor combination of crispy Fritos with mouthwatering chili and melty cheese is both incredibly classic and unique at the same time,” said Scott Uehlein, vice president of product innovation and development for Sonic. “Adding the uniquely delicious and salty bite of Fritos, chili and cheese was something many had to hack menus to get, and now, people can order their faves in three craveable ways right from their cars.”
