News of the signature Snow Cone Slush flavor, Pickle Juice, first hit in March and nearly broke the internet with a cacophony of buzz about this fascinating, sweet yet tart sensation. Some were surprised, others tantalized but one thing was clear: the intrigue was unanimous.

“SONIC’s guests are game to try adventurous and fun flavors, so we’ve made it our mission to deliver the best of both worlds when it comes to innovation and variety,” said Scott Uehlein, vice president of product innovation and development for SONIC. “The entire Snow Cone Slush lineup – including Pickle Juice, Bahama Mama, Blue Hawaiian and Tiger’s Blood – has a distinctly summertime vibe, allowing our guests to create new summer memories.”

To celebrate the Pickle Juice and other Snow Cone Slushes, SONIC is releasing a Snapchat lens that transforms users into an icy-cold Pickle Juice Slush world for a limited time from June 11 through July 29. Users can keep an eye out for this feature on the Snapchat app.

The only-at-SONIC Pickle Juice Slush, along with the rest of the Snow Cone Slush flavors, can be enjoyed starting June 11 for half-price during happy hour and are customizable with any fruit add-ins such as lemon, strawberry, lime and pineapple or candy add-ins such as Popping Candy and NERDS ® while supplies last.**
