Because of, um, journalism, we asked one of our Eat/Drink editors to taste test all of Sonic's 25 Summer shakes and give his opinions. Yes, we literally paid a guy to drink milkshakes. So see what happens when he consumes all 25 of their tasty frozen concoctions, complete with tasting notes. Nothing could possibly go wrong!
