Everyone knows how important it is to drink plenty of water to keep cool, especially now that the temps are rising (yay, spring!). But here’s a more tasty, creative way to get your chill on: Burger King’s Froot Loop shake aka a cereal lover’s dream come true. But before you haul ass to the nearest BK drive-thru, tell your taste buds to calm down because this yummy-sounding shake won’t be available until April 17.

That means several days of pining and plotting on how to make, “I have to get my hands on one of Burger King’s new milkshakes” sound like a legit excuse for cutting out of work early.

There are a few specific things only die-hard cereal lovers will understand, a couple of them being that a) the breakfast food isn’t just for breakfast; and b) it will be happily consumed in any way, shape, or form, particularly when it’s mixed up in a thick, creamy milkshake.

As Cosmo reports, Burger King’s Froot Loop milkshake is made with vanilla soft serve, pieces of the crunchy, colorful loops and a special “sweet sauce.” This news has us so excited because trying new foods is clearly the key to a lifetime of happiness. However, there is a bit of bummer: The new cereal shake we are so eager to sample will only be on Burger King’s dessert menu for a limited time.

Because we prefer to end things on a high note, the Froot Loops shake will only run you $2.99 a pop, which means you should immediately start making plans to purchase as many as you can. Just make sure one of those shakes goes towards bribing your boss for time off.
