Get Ready to Pucker Up For Pickle Juice Slushes in Lubbock
Holy cow, the internet is about to be broke down on the side of the road and left for dead with the news that pickle power is coming to Sonic Drive-in.
How I ended up with a story on Delish.com is beyond me, but I confirmed it on multiple sites. Sonic will be making pickle juice slushes this summer. I'm not sure I approve, but that's okay.
Let's be clear folks, I am a pickle fanatic. I eat pickles as a snack every day and usually twice on the weekend. I usually go through at least a jar or two a week.
However, I'm not a fan of mixing my sweet and my savory, so I'm a little freaked out now.
How does this work? Is there some type of syrup along with the pickle juice, or is it just straight up pickle juice poured over ice?
Well, USA today says it is indeed a sweet pickle syrup and you can actually get it squirted on anything they have. It also claims that the drink is "surprisingly delicious."
This is a tough one for me to fathom, but I know a lot of people who LOVE pickle juice. Well, get your pucker ready: this drink is scheduled to launch in June.
