Sonic Drive-In is a popular fast food chain known for their affordable menu and extensive slush drink flavours. In addition to classic flavours like cherry and blue raspberry, Sonic is now offering a pickle-flavored slush. People have been having mixed reactions to the Pickle Snow Cone Slush online so we took a short road trip to New Jersey to try their Pickle Snow Cone Slush ourselves. Following is a transcript of the video.
Sonic’s Pickle Snow Cone Slush
Irene: Oh my god that’s awful. Oh, my God.
This is Sonic’s Pickle Snow Cone Slush. It’s flavored with a pickle syrup. The pickle syrup can also be added to any food or drink order. People have been having mixed reactions to it. We decided to try it ourselves.
Irene: We are on our way to try Sonic’s new pickle slush. And I hate pickles, so I’m not very excited but…
Alex: I love pickles! And I am very excited.
Kevin: I can’t wait.
We drove to Newark, New Jersey to get to a Sonic.
Cashier: Welcome to Sonic, how can I help you?
Kevin: Hi, could I just get three pickle slushies?
Waiter: And here [are] some mints
Alex: For when it tastes bad!
Alex: I’m Alex and I LOVE pickles. I’ve had them for breakfast. I’m hoping for great things, but I’m really nervous because it seems like people might not love it that much.
Irene: I’m Irene and I hate pickles. Pickles are evil cucumbers. I am really not excited about this. It looks really bright. We’re going to pour it out so you can see just how bright this green is. You can smell it and it just smells like pickle juice. I might throw up, so, we’ll find out.
Irene: Oh, my God. That’s awful. Oh, my God! It’s just like cold pickle juice. [coughing] Oh, God. I don’t know why anyone would invent something like this.
Kevin: How is this making you feel, Alex?
Alex: Really nervous!
Irene: I would rate it negative seventy million pickles. This is terrible.
Alex: I guess it’s my turn to taste it. I’m very excited. I don’t love the colour. It doesn’t look very natural. I think I should just do it? Here we go, ok. It’s a little bit of a letdown only because it doesn’t smack me in the face with a pickle. I feel like everyone’s been saying that it’s got so much flavour and I’m like, “mm it’s not enough,” but mm it’s not enough. I’d rate it the one tiny pickle at the bottom of the jar because it’s kind of watered down and doesn’t taste like much.
Kevin: So I stepped out from behind the camera because I really am eager to try this because I LOVE pickles. It definitely doesn’t look great, but it smells SO good. Oh, my God. OK, so I love this. This is delicious! I could chug this! It’s so refreshing. It’s got the salty bitterness that I love. This is easily 5 out of 5 pickles, incredible.
This drink might not be for everyone…
