UPDATE JUNE 10: The pickle slush will be available at all Sonic Drive-In locations starting June 11.
ORIGINAL STORY: Has the pickle thing gone too far? The latest rumor is that Sonic Drive-In is adding bright-green pickle juice slush to their menus in June.
It's part of their summer lineup, which will also include a slush that tastes like tiger blood, the Blue Hawaiian and Bahama Mama.
According to Foodbeast, the pickle juice slush is made with a unique syrup that provides a punch of briny acidity, but has enough sweetness to take the sharpness out of the flavor.
