You can make Mountain Dew infused pickles, and I’m totally intrigued.
Pickles are a big “dill” around our house (see what I did there?).
I’m not going to lie, we are kind of pickle snobs, stocking our refrigerator with the Claussen brand Kosher Dill Sandwich Slices.
But, I think everyone probably has their favorite brand of pickles. My family isn’t weird, are we??
You know what I would LOVE to try, though? Mountain Dew infused pickles! Yeah, it’s a thing.
Before you say, “EW,” think about it. Pickles are made with sugar — these just give it MORE sugar, and a kick of flavor.
Sounds yummy to me!! But, then, I’m the weird one who likes pickle spears dipped in Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, so what do I know? Ha!

Mountain Dew infused pickles are super easy to make. Just take a jar of dill pickles — any 24 ounce jar of dill pickles will do.
Then you drain the pickle juice out of the jar.
Next, you take 2 cups of your favorite flavor of Mountain Dew, mix it with 1 cup of the pickle juice, and add half a cup of sugar. Yes, I know that is a CRAZY amount of sugar.
Then you are going to pour that mixtures back into the jar, and over the pickles.
If you want a more vibrant color, you can add a couple drops of food coloring, but this is purely for the aesthetic appeal of the final pickle product.
Then you are going to shake the jar gently from top to bottom, and place it in your fridge.
Everyday, you want to go in and again shake that jar of pickles, so any sugar residue is getting mixed back into the solution, and all the pickles are getting sufficiently covered with the sweet solution.
After about a week, you can take out the pickles and taste them.
Now, depending on what Mountain Dew flavor you used, you might get more or less flavor on the pickle. One thing is FOR SURE — they will be syrupy from all that sugar.
