A drive-thru or drive-in doesn't seem like the ideal stop for a marathon runner in training but Sonic has just added a menu item that will help you recover.

Pucker up, Portage, pickle juice slushies are the newest addition to the menu at Sonic Drive-In. Food & Wine shares the scoop of the sweet & sour kosher condiment becoming a slushie; what's the dill with that?

Marathon runners have known for a long time about the benefits of pickle juice. Its restorative properties rival any sports drink on the market. In fact, the Grand Rapids Marathon serves pickle juice on the course at one of the aid stations.

You don't have to be in training for the Kalamazoo Marathon to try the new tasty treat that's sweet and tangy and bright green. Stop in to any Sonic, including the one in Portage on Romence early this Summer and order one up. Not ready for the full commitment? Once the pickle juice slushie snow cone is on the menu, you will be able to get just a side of the juice to add a squirt to your tots, hamburger or even sundae if you'd like.

I'll try it, as long as those annoying 2 guys from the TV commercials aren't there.
