Starbucks is bringing back their Oleato, or the olive oil-infused coffee. But now, you can get them in two different varieties – Oleato Golden Foam Iced Shaken Espresso with Toffeenut or Oleato Caffè Latte with Oatmilk. And their Iced Matcha Tea Latte with Oleato Golden Foam is a fun green option to celebrate Mardi Gras or St. Patrick’s Day.

The classic Shamrock Shake is back! Snag one of these green drinks from McDonald’s for a minty shake with a seasonal green hue. This dessert is full of vanilla soft-serve ice cream, artificially flavored minty green syrup, and whipped topping.

The fast food chain is rolling out this popular drink earlier this year than last — they’re already in stores. A medium will cost you around $4.19.

Here’s a new spin on a favorite. The Shamrock shakes now come in an Oreo McFlurry for some cookies ‘n cream flavor and crunch.

This mini treat won’t be around long, so be sure to grab one at $4.19 while they last!

Bottom line

These limited-time treats are worth a little splurge. The Shamrock Shakes, those only come around once a year, and Starbucks might not leave their olive oil coffees on the menu long. Be sure to swing by these drive-thrus for a delectable drink this month!
