Sonic Drive-In rolling out Pickle Juice slushies this summer

Who out there hasn’t craved a pickle-flavored frozen drink? Well, that’s probably most people. But Sonic Drive-In will roll out the new flavor in June. Maria Yagoda, a writer for Food & Wine, had the chance to sample the pickle juice snow cone slush recently at the company’s headquarters and came away impressed. “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,” Yagoda writes for the magazine.
