Pickles and Kool-Aid. Not since Romeo and Juliet has a couple been so perfect for each other, yet so cursed to stay apart for eternity.

That is, until now. Kool-Aid Pickles have come together to make sweet love on your taste buds. Sorry that sounds gross, but hey, so do pickles soaked for days in cherry Kool-Aid.

Kool-Aid Pickles may sound outrageous and unnatural like pineapple on pizza or Pete Davidson on anyone, but Koolickles are nothing new to Southerners. Apparently, some Wal-Marts in the Mississippi Delta region even sell them in their stores, on purpose.

Luckily, you don't have to waste any gas money searching for that sweet and sour Koolickle fix. Keep reading for an oddly delicious recipe, with only four ingredients. Pepto Bismol chaser, not included.  Definitely Not Gourmet/YouTube


Here's everything you need to wow your friends, family, and large men made entirely out of Kool-Aid.

• 1 (46 oz) jar of whole dill pickles
• 1 cup sugar
• 2 cups water
• 2 (1 oz) packets of Kool-Aid drink mix, flavor of your choice.  In Your State/Pinterest


Drain and discard the juice from the pickle jar.

Pro-Tip, don't toss out that sweet, I mean sour, dill pickle juice. Make yourself a pickle martini, this will make a lot more sense if you're drunk.  13 On Your Side/YouTube


Remove the pickles from the jar and cut each one in half lengthwise. Return the pickles to the jar and set aside. They have no idea of the unspeakable horrors they are about to experience.  Chiot's Run/Flickr


In a large measuring cup, combine the sugar, water, and of course, the packet of Kool-Aid powder.

Remember, there's still time to back out of this recipe and make jello shots.  Robert Hruzek/Flickr


Pour enough of the Kool-Aid mixture into the pickle jar to entirely cover the pickles. Discard any excess juice, or just go ahead and chug the thing. Nothing matters anymore!  GetBabyCakes/YouTube


Cover the jar and shake to mix.

Shake 'em hard like these pickles wronged your family, cause they're about to.  Pea's Eats and Treats/YouTube


Refrigerate 24 hours or more. The longer the pickles sit, the stronger the Kool-Aid flavor will become.

Mmm, blood-red pickles, just the way nature intended.  GJ Charlet III/Flickr


Get creative! There are just as many flavors of Kool-Aid as their are ways to disappoint your pickle-loving family.  GetBabyCakes/YouTube


GET A LOOK AT THESE KOOLICLES! No matter what flavor mixture you decide to go with, your pickles will emerge from the jar with a vibrant hue and a flavor that is both sweet and tart.

Some people even say they taste like candy, then again some people will say anything.  DIYJOY/Pinterest


Share your Koolickles with a friend. Just don't be surprised if they go running through a brick wall immediately after. OH YEAH!  Showbiz Kids/Flickr
