Sonic the Hedgehog Food of the USA 4
The USA had a pretty good collection of Sonic the Hedgehog related food items. Well, technically, most of them were candies or gums. They also (mostly) had the benefit of good flavors and wise choices. As usual, a lot of these were tied in with various promotions or contests. But some were just for fun. This page will have only modern Sonic foods.

Oddfellows Ice Creams Promotion Oddfellows is an ice cream shop / ice cream parlor in the USA, but it is not nation wide. For reasons unknown, it decided to have a classic style Sonic tie-in, where they created 4 new special flavors of ice creams. The flavors can be sold in these specific (probably pint) containers, each with a different art on them. The art has neoclassic Amy. But what are the flavors?
Green Hill Pandan- Pandan and cococnut flavor with candied sunflower seeds in it
Tales of Marshmallow Skies- Marshmallow flavor with blue-velvet cake chunks and caramel turtles
Strawberry Roses Forever- Strawberry and Rosewater flavor
Firey Fruits Frenemy - Chili-mango cream with guava
Bet you weren't expecting such an exotic lineup!
Well what's a pandan? It's a type of root that's popular in asia. What's blue-velvet cake? (Flavor-nerd-alert: red velvet originally got its name and color from putting acid on alkaline cocoa in the cake which resulted in a specific flavor and made the chocolate redder than it was brown. The later version where heaps of red dye is used (all you'll find today) does not taste the same but it is only the look that they are going for: unnaturally bright red cake) So what then is the blue velvet's flavor?
Rosewater- another item more popular long ago, it isn't a powerful flavor so how they're going to convince that to come through strawberry is unknown. This one is named after the famous song "Strawberry Fields Forever"
Firey Fruits Frenemies- Mango and hot flavors are known to pair well, guava makes sense here though it is rare in the northern US.
Amy Rose Strawberry Shortcake GFuel Mix Drink And the 2nd character to get a flavor is...Amy??
Apparently so! G Fuel's "Sonic Peach Rings" drink & drink-mix powder must have done well, because now they're adding Amy to the line up (of powders, at least) with her fun pink flavor Strawberry Shortcake.
This pink powder is 'energy formula' that you can mix with water or plant milk. (Icon on the left) It is designed to provide energy without sugar, jitters or crashes once it wears off.
The jar looks good, with a fun CG picture of thumbs up Amy (uncommon) and shiny slices of cake, with the usual checkering being pink & the modern logo in one corner.
Dos it work? How does it taste? You can write in if you have tried it.
Deco Pack Sonic Cake Decor Set The company Deco Pac creates a Sonic cake topping set in 2024. The set consists of a Sonic plastic toy, 3 rings on clear plastic, and a flat/clear plastic art of gliding Knuckles and flying Tails. These are all re-use-able, and easy to clean because they're all plastic.
Additionally, the Sonic toy is also a roller toy/there are wheels under the 'figure 8 peel out' shape that is the bottom, so after the cake is done, he can be rolled around. The cake shown here doesn't have instructions/it's just a fondant demo item. This is confirmed for sale at Amazon in January and is about 16 dollars.
Pop Ups! are a brand of toy/candy where it has a lollypop that comes in a character themed flip open/snap shut case. The character head snaps closed so you can save the candy for later and it won't get dirty. You use the switch on the side of the handle to flip the top open and shut.
It's an all right idea, especially if you can put any lollypop in there with a similar size stick and keep using it. It comes in an egg shaped plastic box with more character art and logos. If it can be re-used for something (ex. trinket box, etc) that would be nice because it seems a bit excessive packaging. This has been confirmed at Burlington, for about 3.29, but where else is it supposed to be sold? Burlington is a clearing area, so everything that shows up there was supposed to be somewhere else first.
Pop Ups Lollypops Singles Tails Shadow More Pop Ups are popping up at stores like Burlington, DD Discounts, Ross & more! These are in much simpler packaging than their original (above) egg one, but it looks like they come with more candy too, which is also a plus. At left are individual packs for Tails & Shadow (so you know there's a Sonic one somewhere too) and at right is a double pack with Sonic & Tails. The singles seem to have Pop Ups Sonic Tails 2 Pack
3 lollypops and the doubles 2 each. It's 'pez like' without being a pez, and the sculpts for the heads look pretty nice for a candy holding thing. Notice that Shadow's handle design features him, instead of Sonic (unlike the Tails one which only features Sonic) These aren't that expensive, the singles look like 2.99 or so. It's an interesting enough little food related collectible.
Lollypop Rings Favor Box Set The candy company Imaginings apparently gets a Sonic license, and has used it to make Lolly Rings. These are marketed as party favors, as they are individually warpped candies in a box set. You get 18 per box, and they're all modern Sonic, Tails or Knuckles. Each plastic yellow kiddie-ring has a candy 3D head of the character on top. And...somewhat like the (in)famous Sonic ice cream bar they're a bit goofy looking here in the photo and are likely to be even stranger in person because quality control on tiny food items like this doesn't...always go as planned. The candy looks slightly transparent for the heads though? The flavors are Blue Raspberry Sonic, Orange Tails and Strawberry for Knuckles. Do these actually taste good? Write in for credit if you know! This is also sold on Amazon in spring 2024
