Pucker up for Sonic’s new Pickle Juice Slush

The wait to pucker up is over.
Sonic Drive-In’s new Pickle Juice Slush debuts Monday at participating restaurants nationwide.

The bright green limited-time drink will be joined by three new summertime flavors, the fast-food chain announced.

“Sonic’s guests are game to try adventurous and fun flavors, so we’ve made it our mission to deliver the best of both worlds when it comes to innovation and variety,” said Scott Uehlein, the company’s vice president of product innovation and development, in a statement.

But how does it taste?

A taster from Food & Wine magazine described it as “sweet and tangy,” adding that the “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 — and embrace — a pickle-flavored soft drink.”

The magazine also reported that Sonic will let customers add a squirt of the pickle syrup to any menu item.

The other flavors joining the tart frozen treat are Tiger’s Blood, Blue Hawaiian and Bahama Mama.
