Sonic’s pickle juice slush is here! When Sonic first announced that they’d be carrying a pickle-flavored drink, I was boggled. I had never been that into eating pickles (which I honestly thought were the epitome of a pregnancy craving) until one fateful day a few months back when, for the first time in a decade, I ate the pickle spear that came with my sandwich at Panera instead of chucking it straight into the trash. I was hooked.
I knew that I had to give Sonic’s new pickle juice slush a try. I drove all the way to the fringes of Los Angeles County to the nearest Sonic in Duarte to pick one up, and I was a little let down.
Though it had a distinct pickle smell, the slush just tasted like a tangier version of a lime slushie — pickle was not the prevalent flavor, it was more of an aftertaste than anything. The pickle juice slush was super sweet and not at all like the dill pickle in a cup that I think I was secretly hoping for.
