The famous drive-in, Sonic, is introducing a new slushie with a pickly twist!
Sonic welcomes a pickle-flavored slushie to their line of famous slushie drinks to more 3,000 locations across the country.
Called the 'Pickle Juice Slush', the bright-green drink will be available for a limited time! The restaurant chain's vice president of product innovation and development - Scott Uehlein - claims the new refreshment became a thing because "Quite simply, pickle juice is fun. Nothing says summer like a SONIC slush and only SONIC can bring a completely on-trend beverage flavor."
As strange as the drink may sound, it impressed early reviewers who tried the drink at Sonic's Oklahoma headquarters."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," wrote Food and Wine magazine's Maria Yagoda, who added that she found the drink a tad too sugary for her liking.
People went to Twitter to share their thoughts on the Pickle Juice Slush:
For those of you wondering why anyone would ever drink this, well pickle juice has been a popular ingredient for drinks in recent years. Think of pickle juice soda which became a thing in 2017, pickle whiskey sours, or even pickle martinis?
I know personally, I wouldn't try it. I want to know your thoughts! How do you feel about the Pickle Juice Slush?
