Sonic the Hedgehog has a new energy drink, one that only he could appreciate. Energy drink maker G Fuel’s latest flavors are Chili Dogs, inspired by Sonic’s favorite food – and Sanic Hegehog, the meme-ified version of Sega’s mascot. And yes, this too is a real product, despite today’s date.
“Seriously, that’s true,” G Fuel said in a news release Thursday. “If you’ve ever wanted to drink a chili dog from a G FUEL shaker cup, this is your chance.” Taking that chance will cost you $ 39.99, and you have to get on G Fuel’s waiting list. The tasting will start in June, and is available for pre-order from G Fuel̵
G Fuel Sanic Chili Dogs will be available in the US and Canada as a limited edition Sanic package, which includes a 40-serving Sanic Chili Dogs tub, a 16-ounce Sanic shaker cup and an additional 40-serving Sonic’s Peach Rings -kar. G Fuel released the Sonic’s Peach Rings flavor in 2020, and it may be worth having on hand to wash the flavor of liquid chili dog out of your mouth.
“We are excited to work with SEGA again on the second, and indeed, very authentic, Sonic the Hedgehog-inspired crossover flavor,” said G Fuel founder and CEO Cliff Morgan in a statement. “If you’re waiting for us to shout ‘April Fools,’ do not hold your breath. G FUEL Sanic Chili Dogs is the real deal.”
G Fuel’s waiting list for Sanic Chili Dog’s energy drink package closes on April 2 at 3 pm EDT.
