Though peach season is still a ways out, Hardee's is now advertising a "Hand-Scooped" Peach Milkshake as a seasonal offering. Reasonably creamy, though not exactly thick, it's got a pronounced peach flavor that recalls canned peaches—nowhere near as good as fresh peaches, of course, but not as bad as peach syrup; at least this guy has little specks of fruit.

Skip the whipped cream on top, which has the stiff consistency and plasticine taste of Cool-Whip.
