We’re about all things green (technically Figo mint, our brand color) – but also because St. Patty’s Day is quickly approaching. And if you're from the Windy City, you also know it's one of Chicago's favorite holidays – we dye the entire Chicago River green for the occasion! That's why Figo can’t help but get into the Irish spirit this month.
If you're planning to toast with a Guinness or two, you may want to include your pets in on the action by making them a pet-friendly version of the ever-famous Shamrock Shake. Enjoy the St.Patty’s Day celebrations, and don’t forget to rock your (Figo) mint! Sláinte!
