There is a big “dill” at Sonic. Two fan favorite pickle menu items are back for a limited time. If you cannot get enough of that tangy taste, it is time to put the car in gear and head to the drive-in.

Pickle flavors have taken over the food world. From chips to dips to restaurant menus, people cannot get enough of those briny flavors.

With the recent announcement, many people are running to Sonic Drive-In to enjoy their favorite pickle menu items. As Mackenzie Gibson, Vice President of Culinary & Menu Innovation at Sonic said, “Our pickle-forward menu innovations have become some of our most popular, so much so that they’ve often sold out quicker than we anticipated.”

What Sonic pickle menu items are back for a limited time?

Now through August 28, participating Sonic Drive-In locations will offer Pickle Juice Slush and the Big Dill Cheeseburger. While the Pickle Juice Slush had everyone talking when it first hit menus, its return is just as exciting. This sweet and tart flavor was the beverage that many people picked to beat the heat.

While the salty dill pickle flavor is apparent, the sweet slush makes for a balanced sip. Just like a touch of salt makes sweet more enjoyable, the dill pickle flavor is a similar approach. Truthfully, it is a beverage that needs to be tried at least once.

Also, that pickle juice flavoring can be added to any Sonic beverage. While some flavor combinations might be a miss, the opportunity to experiment with flavors can be welcomed by some.

In addition to the Pickle Juice Slush, the Big Dill Cheeseburger is back. After a sold-out launch in April, this special burger was more successful than anyone had anticipated. The seasoned beef patty is topped with pickle fries, crinkle cut pickle slices and ranch sauce. For pickle lovers, it is the ultimate bite. From the flavors to the textures, it totally satisfies.

Plus, the Big Dill Cheeseburger is just $4.49. Based on the previous response, it might be best to satisfy that craving before it is too late. Pickle lovers do not want to be left out.

Lastly, pickle fries can be purchased as a side, too. The battered, fried pickle spears are tasty on their own or dipped in ranch. For some people, the triple pickle meal will be a must buy.

Are you excited for the return of the Sonic favorite pickle menu items? How many times will you enjoy them before the limited time menu disappears?
