Sonic Drive-In is a fast option If you’re looking for a quick bite on the way to work and don’t have time to get out of your car. But you might want to consider whether you get your morning caffeine fix there.

At least that’s what one customer claims she was told by an employee when she asked their opinion of the chain’s iced coffee.

Tiktoker Raylyn (@pimpraylyn) says she was ordering a breakfast burrito from an unspecified Sonic location when she inquired about the quality of the drink. She posted her claim to her account four days ago and has racked up 163,300 views as of Monday.

Raylyn filmed her story in front of a sonic menu in the parking lot. In it, she claims, “I just pulled up to Sonic to get a breakfast burrito and I asked the girl [employee] if the iced coffee was good.”

She states that the employee asked if she was a “coffee person.”

Raylyn responded that she was. She claims that the employee immediately responded “No” to the question.

“Thank you for being honest,” Raylyn concludes at the end of the video.

According to Business Wire Sonic started using Keurig brand Green Mountain Coffee in its locations starting in 2016. The coffee is served with cream over Sonic’s signature-style ice cubes. According to the company website, a large has about 59 calories and contains 42 grams of sugar.
