Sonic Drive-In announces pickle flavored slush
The pickle flavored slush is coming to Sonics nationwide

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Sonic Drive-In restaurants are bringing an unusual, sour treat to customers this summer.

Food and Wine recently reported that the popular food chain is releasing a pickle juice slush nationwide this June.

The article noted the slush as being very sweet, salty and containing a strong dye that can turn your tongue green.

According to a Sonic spokesperson, the pickle flavored syrup used in the slush can be added to anything on the menu including burgers, shakes, and sundaes for a small upcharge.

"You won't understand why, but you'll keep going back for more sips, likely until it's all gone," said Maria Yagoda, a taste-tester for Food and Wine.
