Pickle Juice Slushies Are Coming And, I Don't Know, Is This Too Much?

Pickle your battles wisely, folks.

Posted on

Folks, pickle juice slushies (technically, "slushes") are coming to a Sonic Drive-In near you this summer and I honestly don't know if this is awesome or questionable.

I love pickles, but IDK?!

I love pickles, but IDK?!

As reported by Food & Wine, the popular drive-in chain will unveil a new pickle juice snow cone slush this summer.

Apparently it will be a generic sweet slush flavored with pickle juice.

Apparently it will be a generic sweet slush flavored with pickle juice.

And people are actually VERY excited about the news.

I just saw that sonic is getting a pickle juice slush Iā€™m shaking

I love frozen pickles and pickle juice so I bet a slush would be fire

Also that pickle juice slush woulda really hit the spot today #hormones

Although, there are some outliers, too.

@girving715 I like pickles, but I can't fathom swilling pickle juice, especially in slushie form. Probably better than Tide Pods, though.

Food and Wine was also able to get a taste of the drink at Sonic's headquarters and described it as, "surprisingly delicious." Their full review says:

[It's] sweet and tangy, the bright brine compensates for the over-savoriness you might have been worried about. You won't understand why, but you'll keep going back for more sips, likely until it's all gone. Our only gripe is that the slush is a bit too sweet, as if overcorrecting for the acidity, but maybe this is what has to happen for America to acclimate to ā€” and embrace ā€” pickle-flavored soft drink.

Of course, pickle juice-flavored drinks are not exactly ~new~, but this combination takes things to a whole new level.
