Why Shamrock Shakes Rock

St. Patrick’s Day has always been one of my favorite holidays, but not because of the leprechauns and four leaf clovers as one might think. No, its because of the glorious green milkshakes McDonalds displays: Shamrock shakes.

Every year I look forward to the beginning of February when McDonalds finally makes shamrock shakes available. They usually last until the beginning of April, and I try to have as many as possible before then. I even downloaded the McD reward app so I can get a free one after every five ☺ (that’s right I have that many).

Whenever I talk about them people always ask me…what flavor are they? And the truth is, I have no idea! Apparently they are mint but I think they taste even better than plain mint. However, I can tell you that this year they have gone so EXTRA.

Not only do they have cute little green sprinkles, but they have new flavors! They have a shamrock chocolate chip frappe, chocolate shamrock shake, shamrock hot chocolate and shamrock mocha.

Unfortunately, I have not tried a single new flavor yet because I am scared they will not measure up to the OG. But I have faith they must be good because they come from the same family!


So for any poor unfortunate souls that have yet to try shamrock shakes… TRY ONE NOW! Like right now! I may put McD out stock with my business if you don’t act fast. You will not regret it I promise!
