For those who love pickles, you'll be 'pickled-tink' at the thought of the latest flavor soon to be introduced at Sonic Drive-In restaurants in Grand Junction and other locations across the US.

Before you turn up your nose at the thought of a pickle-flavored slush, the food experts at Sonic say it isn't what you think. The new flavor will be sweet with the tangy flavor of pickle juice.

According to Scott Uehlein, Sonic's President of Product Innovation and Development,

Quite simply, pickle juice is fun. Nothing says summer like a SONIC slush and only SONIC can bring a completely on trend beverage flavor into 3,500 restaurants. The Pickle Juice Slush launches nationwide in June for a limited time only.

You have to admit, Uehlein is correct, pickles are trendy right now. Batter fried dill pickles served in restaurants are very popular. Then there are beer pickles, barbecue pickles, pickle popsicles and pickle brine shots.

If a pickle slush isn't enough, Sonic can add their pickle juice to just about anything on their menu, although I probably wouldn't want it in a chocolate shake. Vanilla shake? That would be worth a try.

The pickle juice slushes will be sold at all western Colorado Sonic Drive-Ins including Grand Junction, Clifton, Delta, Montrose, and Rifle.

I'm going to try a pickle slush, what about you?
