Sonic’s news Pickle Juice Slush will hit drive-thru’s at all of its U.S. locations starting Monday, June 11th.
The pickle-flavored slushies will be joined by three other classic snow cone flavors including Bahama Mama, Blue Hawaiian, Tiger’s Blood for a limited summer release. SONIC’s icy-cold and colorful Snow Cone Slushes will give guests the ultimate taste of summer in a sippable, slurpable delight
When these menu additions were announced, Food & Wine was granted the opportunity to test the pickle-infused frozen drinks back in March. The outlet reported it tested the drink at Sonic’s headquarters in Oklahoma City.
” … it’s surprisingly delicious (and makes a good accompaniment to burgers and/or tots and/or corn dogs.),” Food & Wine said in its review.
“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,” wrote Food and Wine magazine’s Maria Yagoda, who added that she found the drink a tad too sugary for her liking.
To celebrate the Pickle Juice and other Snow Cone Slushes, SONIC is releasing a Snapchat lens that transforms users into an icy-cold Pickle Juice Slush world for a limited time from June 11 through July 29.
The only-at-SONIC Pickle Juice Slush, along with the rest of the Snow Cone Slush flavors, can be enjoyed starting June 11 for half-price during happy hour and are customizable with any fruit add-ins such as lemon, strawberry, lime and pineapple or candy add-ins such as Popping Candy and NERDS® while supplies last.
