No, the Sonic the Hedgehog ice cream bar is not discontinued

Treat yourself!

In recent months, it appears there's been a shortage of Sonic the Hedgehog ice cream bars. They've been quite hard to find, which lead to a rumor of the item being discontinued. Thankfully that's not the case.

Blue Bunny, the company behind the ice cream bars, has taken to Twitter to assuage fears. The company says that the product is still part of their lineup, and any shortages out there stem from manufacturing issues that popped up during the pandemic.
