For One Day, Tickle Pickle Will Serve Up a Grippo's-Flavored Milkshake

"We want it, we need it"

Ever wondered what a liquid form of Grippo's barbecue chips would taste like? No? Me either. But Northside's Tickle Pickle is delivering a Grippo's-flavored milkshake anyway. 

Seriously — it's blended with actual barbecue Grippo's, topped with a heap of whipped cream and garnished with a pickle. Named after experimental Hip Hop band Death Grips, the shake is fittingly named "Death Grippo's." And, I mean, if you drank enough of these you might just dissolve into a "Bottomless Pit."

I tried the shake in advance — sans whipped cream — and honestly, it was good. If you're into dipping your french fries in ice cream, like me, you'll dig this. Equal parts sweet, spicy and salty, the longer you sip the stronger the barbecue flavor shines through. Pro tip: Sip fast — if you let it sit long enough, chip remnants will congeal on top. 

Verdict? I would try this oddball creamy concoction again. 

You can only snag a "Death Grippo's" shake today. Before you ask, no: This isn't just an April's Fool's joke. It's real. It's happening. It's confirmed and it's absolutely wild.
