    I had a couple last year, as these were a long-time favorite treat… but either they’ve changed, or I’ve changed, because they are almost sick-sweet to me now. They used to be minty like Breyer’s ice cream – mint without huge sugary flavor.

    Harrumph!

    …and that’s when the kids scurried off her lawn. ;-)

    Getting these as a kid was always a real treat because they were so rare. The last time I did have one however, I felt like I was going to go into a diabetic coma.

    Now I just do smoothies and Jeni’s ice cream. ;-)

    My, I thought I’d seen it all until I saw Green Grimace.

    unlike that gross injection molded wanna be rib meat sandwich, this is actually important.

    it’s back!

    +1 The wife knows how much I like(d) them, and brought one home for me last week. I had about a third of it, and tossed the rest. I don’t want whipped cream and cherries and extra-bright-green food coloring, I just want the same shake I waited all year for in the ’80s.

    Arby’s makes a competing mint shake that is better than the new Shamrock.

    I didn’t realize they put whipped cream and cherries on them now.
