When it comes to pickles, almost everyone has an opinion. Pickles are one of those foods that you either love or hate — and whichever side you fall on, you probably feel pretty strongly about it.
Pickle-lovers are obsessed with the salty, briny flavor, and the nice crunch you get when you bite into them.
Although many people would argue that pickles are best in their natural form, there are also a variety of pickle-flavored items out there on the market: candies, chips, sports drinks, etc. Some people even use pickle juice as a chaser for shots!
Well, now there’s a new pickle product out there — pickle juice slushies! That’s right, frozen pickle juice, blended up and served with a straw. The creator of this sweet and salty icy drink? Sonic Drive In, of course.
The unique fast food restaurant announced that it will be serving pickle juice slushes starting this summer. Some people are thrilled with the announcement, while others are a little more hesitant.
People who love pickles can’t wait to try the refreshing summer drink, while people who hate pickles think this is the most disgusting thing they’ve ever heard of. Just take a look at some of these responses on Twitter!
