Looking for a taste of heaven? Looking for it in the drive-thru? Look no further than select Burger King locations in the winter of 2015 to early 2016. Surge was a popular soda back in the 1990-2000s. It was mainly a popular drink with teenagers and adults that needed to stay awake, and was discontinued years ago in the United States. Burger King has decided to tickle your nostalgia buttons and will be bringing this treat back in icee form!
I have been lucky enough to enjoy this re-imagined beverage on two or three separate occasions, before the syrup, much like my dreams, disappeared. Alas poor Surge, I knew thee well! BK can bring this beverage back to their menu any time, in my opinion since it is a limited edition item.
On the outside, the icee appears to be your standard semi-frozen fare. Syrup, carbonation, pureed ice, drink. On the inside however was the taste of nostalgia and the longing for a permanent menu item. Surge is something that needs to be experienced on it’s own, but a brief note of flavor that jumps out is definitely Orange, but it is not an orange flavored drink. It’s just not able to be described, it is something to be fondly remembered. This icee was definitely up to par in my books.
Grab one of these before they are gone. While I long for this to be a permanent menu item, alas, ’tis not to be. Limited time only!
