I know what you're thinking. I thought the same thing when I saw the headline. Kool-Aid pickles? It actually made my stomach churn. But thousands of people across the South swear by this sweet and tangy treat.

Pickles have been brined in all sorts of weird combinations including Hot Cheetos and chocolate, just to name a couple.

But a Kool-Aid pickle? That honestly sounds the weirdest considering Kool-Aid is supposed to be fruity and sweet.

However, it has become somewhat of a tradition throughout the south-eastern states of America, such as Mississippi, Missouri, Louisiana, Tennessee, and Georgia.

According to Thrillist.com, "The premise is simple: Add powdered fruit punch-flavored Kool-Aid mix to a jar of pickles, stir, and let the pickles absorb the artificial fruit punch flavor over the course of a couple of days. The longer you keep the pickles sitting, the redder and sweeter they become."

"If sweet and savory works in a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, on a charcuterie board, or salt flecked chocolate chip cookies, who is to say that it won’t work in a pickle?"
