Smothered and covered
Angel just made me squeal like a little girl. She pointed out the following from Sonic's site:

To celebrate our 50th year, we're bringing back some all-time favorites, like our one-of-a-kind Pickle-O's! You'll love these sliced dill pickles made crispy and perfect for dipping. Available for a limited time only at participating locations.
Laugh at us all you want -- those who have eaten Pickle-O's KNOW what I'm talkin' 'bout. And to date, the only place to still get them has been Classic 50s Drive-In in Norman, Oklahoma. I haven't had them in over two years. Screw Todd's ticker... If our Sonic is in on this promotion, we're eating there every night for a week. It's a moral imperative.

P.S. If you think the concept of fried pickles is bad, I should also add that we eat them covered with cheese. Oh yeah, baby!

Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

Oh, I LOVE fried pickles too. But the only place I know of around here that has them only makes fried pickle spears. Still, massively yummy. But I've only ever had them with ranch dressing.

I ate Pickle-O's all the time growing up!! I love them and was so depressed when Sonic stopped selling them here! I just hope they show up soon because I'm getting HUNGRY! ;)

we have a Sonic right next to my house... don't think it's the classic 50's one... but i'd take a gander at some fried pickles. sounds tasty!

Oh Classic 50s isn't a part of Sonic. They look very similar, but there's only one -- and it's at OU. They never quit serving Pickle-O's (thank god). Classic 50s is muuuuuuch better, but Sonic helps us in our time of need.

Oh my GOD that sounds good. Hey, when I come down to collect my 1000th comment prize will you throw in a bag of those hot mamas?

I just wanted you to know - since I originally found the idea appalling - that I had deep fried pickles here not long ago at a little sandwich joint in town, and they were AMAZING. I will definitely be heading to our Sonic to have some of these!

We've got Sonic as far north as Iowa! Bring it on. Fried foods are the nectar of the gods! Adding cheese is like adding ambrosia!

Ok, I'm taking your word for it that the Sonic version is good. I mean I ♥ fried dill pickles more than words can express so this is superfly big deal here.

Trivia - in Kentucky they call them Frickles (Fried pickles) & eat them on hamburgers. It was one of the first things that made me not hate Louisville. :) Still not as good as the Mississippi style ones from my childhood, but good.

My jealousy knows no bounds, you guys. Alas, there is no shining beacon of battered goodness in the Pacific Northwest...

Gotta go to Denver... there's a cajun restaurant that serves fried pickles with fried aligator tail! Don't knock it till you try it!

I'm sorry, did you say cheese covered fried pickles?

Good gravy.

Yeah...baby! Extra cheese is the ONLY way to go! Think of fried jalapeno poppers -- same great taste, without the jalapeno. :-)

You have no idea how jealous I am that you live in the Land O' Sonic. sigh. Eat many Pickle-O's for me, ok?

Mmmm, fried pickles. I love them so... like Tracy, I've only had them with ranch dressing.

However, the think I miss most about Iowa food is cheese balls. Deep-fried cheddar cheese curds. (Like California is going to have something as sinful as that?!) Awwwww yeah. I don't think I've ever seen them in any other state. They'll make a believer out of you, I promise. My cousin from Texas always wanted to go get some whenever she visited, because they didn't have them where she lived...

MMM, Classic 50's. I worship there several times a week. Right now Classic's and the Sonic next door are having a Pickle-O war.

My friend Angela and I have been to Sonic several times and we didn't really know what to make of the Pickle-O's. We were debating how nasty they'd be if we tried them. But now I'm intrigued, might have to try some!

ooh. we get our fried pickles at Razzoo's. I love them! Although, I have had fried pickles somewhere else, and they were not good. So it is safe to say that not everyone fries up a good pickle.

The Pickle-Os are ok, but the Fried Pickles at Black-eyed Pea are SOOOOOOOO good that the Picle-O's didn't really do it for me. So I ate my chili pie and headed to Sephora to shop to make up for it!
