In the Southern US, "Koolickles" are created by soaking pickles in Kool-Aid.

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/05/09/dining/09kool.html

from UD: >"A Koolickle is a Mississippi Delta delicacy which originated following Clinton's arrival in the White House (circa 1992). A Koolickle is created by taking a jar of dill pickles (cut in half), dumping out half of its brine, and adding in a double strong mixture of your favorite Kool-Aid flavor with water and 1/2-1 cup of sugar. This concoction is then placed back into the refrigerator; Koolickles reach their optimal taste if left in the fridge for a week.

>"Heyo, what's that jaun you're eating?"

>"It's a freakin Cherry Koolickle, a sweet and sour pickle sensation.""

I have yet to try this, but it's supposedly delicious.
