Sonic Rolling Out Pickle Juice Slushes This Summer
Well after a weekend that featured green shamrocks, clothing, apparel, and possibly a green beer or two, Sonic Drive-In's announced something else green that will be arriving this summer. Pickle Juice slushes!
According to Food & Wine;
This June, Sonic will unveil a pickle juice snow cone slush, according to Sonic representatives. And the drink is exactly what it sounds like: a sweet slush flavored with pickle juice. As could be expected, the beverage is bright green—in a way no brine of pickles ever has been—but this is Sonic, so everything should be a little fluorescent and playful.
Maria Yagoda of Food & Wine got a sneak-peak and even tasted the pickle slush and she though it was actually pretty good! Maria wrote that the pickle slush was "sweet and tangy", but she did have one critique for the brine-y flavored drink and that was "that the slush is a bit too sweet, as if overcorrecting for the acidity."
For those of you who head to one of the 5 current Minnesota Sonic locations to try this new drink flavor this summer, if you end up liking it, you will be able to put the flavored syrup on other menu items like your burger, fries, or whatever your heart desires.
So how much for the pickle syrup squirt? Sonic pointed out that they can’t control what franchises will charge you it’s up to each individual franchise to price.
What flavor will they roll out with next?
