It's about time...

Good morning everyone!

It's looking like it's going to be a gray day out there today. We can expect some rain overnight and then to continue most of tomorrow before turning back to mostly sunny for the rest of the week. Tomorrow is looking at a high of 19C and the rest of the week will see highs in the low 20s.

The season for sakura-flavored treats in Japan may be over for the year, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t tons of other new yummy treats to try out there — like the McShake Kiwi that will be on sale from McDonald’s Japan starting April 26 this week.

While there have been numerous McShake flavors offered over the years, this is the first kiwi-flavored shake that McDonald’s Japan has come out with, and they’ve used fully-ripe kiwis from Ehime Prefecture located on the island of Shikoku.

Ehime is the largest kiwi producing prefecture in Japan, and they’ve used only select kiwi fruits with high sugar content to make the shake, so you can be sure that you’re in for  a sweet treat!

They’ve actually started offering the shake in Ehime starting April 21, ahead of the rest of the country so if you're in or off to Ehime you can try it before the rest of us...

They’ve also shared on their news release page some images from the TV commercial set to start airing very soon.

▼ Mmmm… that kiwi smoothness looks delectable!

The McShake Kiwi will be available at McDonald’s locations across Japan starting April 26 until mid-May at a price of 120 yen for a small cup and 200 yen for a medium-sized cup.

The tangy flavor of kiwi should make for a refreshing shake, and combined with the lovely green color, the McShake Kiwi should be a delightful way to quench your thirst as the weather becomes warmer. But it's too early! I still haven't had a chance to try the Cherry Pie drink at Starbucks yet! Ha ha! I'd better go to Starbucks today on the way home from work and then I'll go to McDonald's tomorrow...I'll let you know later this week which one is worth actually trying out.

Have a great day!
