Sonic Pickle Juice Slush Review

Sonic Pickle Slush

Sonic pickle slush has mixed reviews. In the beginning, it became famous for its uniqueness. However, when it reached the true pickle-lover community, they were not very satisfied with this innovation.

They said that it just tastes weird and is not exactly like pickle juice. When you take the first sip, you taste something unique, but as you take more sips, the pickle slush starts feeling like a regular slush – a sweet, icy drink.

People believe that the drink should have more pickle juice or flavoring to make it taste like what it actually claims to be. Its color should also be dark forest green rather than yellow-green.
