Pick: Would you eat these vintage pickle recipes?

This survey will put your taste buds in quite the pickle.

Sonic Drive-In's new Pickle Juice Snow Cone Slush would have felt right at home in the 1950s and 1960s. It was the era of savory Jell-O molds and "mayonnaise pears" — not to mention a peak time for drive-in culture.

But wait, let's back up. Yes, the Pickle Juice Snow Cone Slush is real. And, yes, it is exactly what it sounds like — a frozen slushy made with briny pickle juice. 

It brings to mind a classic episode of I Love Lucy in which a pregnant Lucy dipped a dill pickle into a milkshake. Sounds preferable to her other craving — a hot fudge sundae with pistachio ice cream and sardines.

That got us thinking about some vintage recipes we've come across — the kind that homemakers used to clip from the pages of Ladies' Home Journal. It sparked a debate in the office that we need you to settle.

Would you eat these foods featuring pickles as a key ingredient? 
  1. How about Judy Latham's Saucy Dilly Dugouts — essentially a minced hot dog salad stuffed inside a hollowed pickle?
  2. Or here's the inverse, Quick Barbecued Frankfurters, pickle-stuffed wieners in BBQ sauce.
  3. How about Alice Anderson's Pretty Pickle, a giant cheese tree pegged with various pickles?
  4. Speaking of trees, how about this Christmas Relish, made with cherries, cloves, lemon Jell-O and pickle juice?
  5. Pickled Meat Loaf?
  6. This Gondolier's Hero Sandwich?
  7. This Philly-Dill Scooper, made with cream cheese and pickle juice?

  8. Would you try some "Cling Peach Soufflé Salad," made with lime Jell-O, peaches, mayo and pickles?

Back in the day, A&W had a beverage called Mad Dog, which was half root beer, half orange juice and 1 dill pickle slice. It's yum! 😋

80% similar. Yes, I love pickles...and that tiny squeaky sound you get when you rub two of ‘em together...you know what I mean, Mr. Krabs? I even tricked my friend by replacing lemon-lime Gatorade with pickle juice. Still, I’d probably only try the last two...!
