If you like things that are just a little odd, you’ll probably love this. It’s not quite as weird as pickle flavored ice cream, but still just as pickle-ey. A new soda, flavored like pickle juice. This raises the question – why not just drink pickle juice? Oh well, that’s not the point I guess.
It comes from a candy store chain, called “Grandpa Joe’s Candy Shop.” They’re based in Ohio and Pennsylvania, which is where they’re selling the soda.
You may now be asking “well then why are you telling us about it?” Because it’s weird, that’s one reason. Another reason is because you can get it online. Isn’t the internet fun? Now you’re probably taking one of two opinions. One – if you’re a pickle lover, you’re probably very excited. Two – if you either hate, or just casually like, pickles, you’re probably thinking “eh, I don’t know about this.” Or maybe your opinion is similar to this Twitter user:
Here’s a Facebook post from the store:
They say that the soda “smells just like dill pickle juice as you might imagine. The taste is spot-on. While the flavor isn’t overwhelming, it’s sweet and would definitely satisfy that pickle craving.”
It’s weird, for sure, but we want to try it, at least once. It’s available in-store (if you find yourself in Ohio or Pennsylvania) for $2.50 per bottle, or online for $10, though is most likely sold out at any given time. That’s a high price, but if you buy a 6-pack, it’s $30.
