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?
