Blind Slushie Taste Test

– Today we find ourselves in a bit of a pickle – Let's talk about that

(energetic upbeat music) – Good mythical morning! – Today we're tossing you a PFD That's right, get ready for some pickle, foam, and dogs That's what PFD means around here In just a bit, we're gonna be trying the weirdest internet trend, the floral foam crushing, and then we have a game about dogs with the most luxurious of hair But first, did you know that the average American eats 8

5 pounds of pickles every year? Well, apparently Sonic Drive-In knows exactly how much we all love pickles because they just announced they're rolling out a brand new pickle juice slush in June – This sounds crazy but it's true I mean, look, the Today Show has covered it You know it's legit Sonic's Vice President of Product Innovation and Development is quoted as saying, "Quite simple, pickle juice is fun

" – That's been my experience I've never had a non-fun experience with pickle juice – We're gonna find out He also said, "Nothing says summer like a Sonic Slush" – That's up for debate

– Well, nothing says GMM like trying something before it's available to the public, so we're gonna be sipping these pickle juice slushes today Not to mention, also a few other flavors It's time for Stuff We Try That You Can't Buy, Sonic Pickle Juice Slush Edition – Okay, so we're gonna try our own expert approximation of the pickle juice slush from Sonic, as created by Mythical chefs Tess and Josh Alright, bring them out

They're bringing them out Sonic style – Oh, yeah – Welcome to our Drive-In! We have two pickle slushies coming right up – I'm rolling the window down – Okay, here you go

– The inside of our car looks like a desk – Bye! – All the Sonics I see now they don't skate anymore – It's just so graceful – It's a thing of the past How can this be good? – Well, first of all, let me just say that they had people like me in mind

I love pickles, I love pickle juice, I have done pickle juice, I've done pickle juice like a drink right out of the jar – You sip it? – I have sipped it, yes I'm a pickle juice aficionado – Okay – And so because we don't have the recipe, this is pretty cool, this is what they did

Food and Wine actually got ahold of some of these – What about us, Sonic? Food and Wine right here – But what we did is we re-engineered these based on the review that Food and Wine gave of them, which was, "Sweet and tangy, "the bright brine compensates for the over-savoriness "you might have been worried about," and, "A bit too sweet, "as if over-correcting for the acidity" So what that ended up becoming is a real dill pickle juice from the jar at a three-to-one ratio with sugar, and then mixed with a recreation of Sonic's famous slushed crushed ice and then we added some green food coloring for fun – Yeah, because before it was kinda yellow

It looked urine-ish, honestly Alright, dink it – Oh, are those not glasses? – Is this not glasses? That's plastics – They came out on roller skates, she came out on roller skates, so they didn't wanna give her glass – Smart

– Vote of confidence, guys – [Tess] It's my first day on the job – Let's taste it – Yeah – You like? It just tastes like iced pickle juice to me

– Uh-huh, and the problem with that is? Come on, you're Food, I'm Wine Hold on, am I Food and you're Wine? – Yeah, that's how it happened – Food and Wine – So having sipped actual pickle juice, are you telling me this is sweeter than that because I'm just struck – Actually, this is significantly sweeter than straight dill pickle juice

This is almost like those What are the other kind of pickles that are a little bit dill and a little bit sweet? – Bread and butter – Bread and butter

This has a bread and butter-ishness to it, which I really like because I like dills I like all pickles I don't discriminate against my pickles – Here's the thing To me, this is like a cold shower for your mouth

– Well, I always wanted that – It's like enduring pain to wake up or to become less aroused – Sometimes you need to put a damper on it, sometimes you need to put a damper on your pickle with some pickle juice – So if you like pickle juice like Rhett does, I'm hearing a recommendation – It's definitely not for everybody

I'm a big pickle fan I probably eat between 17 to 18 pickles every week I'm not kidding That's why we have lots of peanut butter and lots of pickles in my house I'm a pickle man and so as a pickle man, I can definitely recommend the pickle slush

– I'm not recommending it but I also don't hate it and, like I said, a cold shower is good every once in a while and sometimes you really need one But let's move on to, dare I say, even weirder slush flavors What we've done is we've asked Mythical chefs Tess and Josh to create some mystery flavor slushes, see if we can discover something new Sonic, we're here to help you out, baby If any of these work but we're going to have to guess what they are

The person who guesses the most correctly will win the right to eat a bonified Southern treat, Kool-Aid pickle – Alright, bring in the first one – He's looking confident in this Look at you – You need a desk to settle yourself? – You got it, you got it, you got it? – Trust yourself, Josh

– [Josh] Push me a little more – Yep, there you go Alright – [Rhett] Look at these Good Mythical koozies – Dang

Alright, so it's totally blacked out We get no advantage from looking – It's on the tip of my tongue – It's some sort of sauce – What is that? Oh, what is that? – It's like soy sauce

Soy sauce slush – I know what it is but I don't know what it is – I hate it, whatever it is – Alright, give us the hint – Am I wrong? It's not soy sauce

– [Producer] I'm gonna three, two, one, and then you give your official guess, okay? Here we go, three, two, one – Soy slush, soy sauce – It's a sauce but I can't put my finger on it – Okay, I can't give either one of you the point for that one I'm gonna try and personalize these hints, so get ready

If I go to this establishment, I usually get a bowl where the bottom has rice on it and the top has this particular thing I get it really quickly because that's in the name of this fast food restaurant – PD Quix? – I don't know that that is – Quick stop – I know I've had it

It's teriyaki, teriyaki sauce – [Producer] So close, but it's Chinese – Oh, yeah, it's duck sauce – Sweet and sour slush – Okay, I can't give you the point

It's Panda Express orange chicken – Yes, okay – Orange chicken – Yeah, it was like such a familiar taste, but I don't have a word for that in my brain I just eat the orange chicken

– Hey, guys, back again Talk about a brain freeze party, am I right? Wow, okay, enjoy – I feel like if I respond it'll encourage her – Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah – Okay

– Oh, oh, oh, oh gosh – It's a fast food It's a savory

– My brain's not working, is it getting frozen? – I've totally tasted this but I can't placeded it – It feels exactly the same way I've tasted this a million times, but I can't tell you what it is

– When it's infused with ice and cold, it's wrong – [Producer] Ready to guess? – Yeah, I got it, I got it – [Producer] Three, two, one – [Rhett] Barbecue chips – [Link] Pringles

– [Producer] Okay, it is a chip – Oh, Fritos – [Producer] Yes, correct! – That's what it is Fritos, it's so Frito-ey – Okay, so I get the point, ew

Here he comes – I'm gaining confidence with every drop – I can tell – That is a dangerous thing – Catching yourself on the desk is where you really lose your composure

If you could, next time, just come in and gently set it down – [Josh] I live off tips Please don't let that affect it (coughing) (crew laughing) – I'm sorry, I'll cover that up (coughing) – It's not good

– No, it's great – Okay, give us the count – [Producer] Okay, three, two, one – [Rhett] Sardines – [Link] Clam juice

– [Producer] Okay, it is in the sea, but this is a very smart animal from the sea – [Rhett and Link] Octopus – [Producer] Is that a tie? I feel like that was a tie – I started earlier – [Producer] Okay, Rhett, we'll give it to Rhett

– Aw, seriously? What do you mean? Hold on, there needs to be a judge Did he start first or not? – I started a good 75 seconds earlier – Hey, guys Wow, you're really into that cold beverage situation

Here you go – Yep, we just keep ordering them, huh? – Okay, try not to let your brain fall out of your head – After that last one, I'm a little – Scared? – I'm a little scared – Okay, we've got two more – The blinders are on – Oh, they better not have done, like, blood Are you dinking for comfort now? – I just want it to be synced because I don't want anyone to know before the other one

That's meaty, but sweet – [Producer] This one's complex and it's not supposed to be gross So really, it's gonna harken back to a – Don't even give me a hint, I've got it – I know what it is – [Producer] Okay, three, two, one – [Rhett and Link] Thanksgiving dinner – [Producer] Wow, that's amazing

That's correct – [Tess] Oh my God, no way – I think I went early but we both got it right – [Producer] How is it? – You know what, I don't know if it's because it's following octopi, but I almost like this one – I think they could sell this one

– Remember that time we were at a food court and we saw one of the Sonic guys? – Uh-oh – Happy Cotton Candy Day, daddies Are you ready to taste my salty juices? – Yes, yes, Randy I'm always ready for that – Before you take a drink do you wanna hear a sweet nothing, daddy? – Yeah

– I have seen a great darkness, it is coming for us A great beast will devour us from below and we will be born anew into a new world of pain where the streets will run red with blood and screams will be our currency You smell like a diaper tastes (crew laughing) – Something tells me I got the sweeter end of that deal this time Usually I'm warned that he's gonna be here, but it really frightened me

(crew laughing) – I'm excited about our future – Very detailed, that secret – Yeah, yeah, that was the most complex sweet nothing I've ever gotten – It was also a very loud sweet Like, I could hear every bit of it – Dink it and drink it – Okay – Got it

– [Producer] Three, two, one – [Rhett and Link] Wasabi – [Producer] Oh, Rhett got that one quicker – Well, I mean, we both got it We both knew

That's a tie all the way around, that means we both get to enjoy Kool-Aid pickles in Good Mythical More! – Is it coming out of your nose, man? – Yeah – And the Sonic guys, if you're watching, we'll hang out anytime – Yeah, we wanna be your best friends – And keep watching because we're about to soak in some ASMR by crushing floral foam – [Rhett] Chill out, dude
