One of the things that gets us through the dregs of winter is the iconic Shamrock Shake from McDonald’s. Yes, you can do a skinny version of this classic, but sometimes, nothing beats the original. While McDonald’s took away all-day breakfast recently, they’re giving us something back in the form of four new Shamrock Shake flavors, and we’re here for them.
Besides the original shake, McD’s is offering a limited edition chocolate Shamrock Shake, as well as a Shamrock Chocolate Chip Frappe, Shamrock Hot Chocolate and a Shamrock Mocha. These are definitely not for people who don’t already love the mint chocolate combo, but for those of us who do, our bodies are ready.
If the mint chocolate flavor combo is your thing, remember that the Shamrock Shake only lasts until March, which means that you only have a few short weeks to pick up one of these delicious snacks, although if they are successful, maybe McDonald’s will consider keeping the frappe or mocha on the menu more permanently. Their track record this year has been disappointing, though, so we won’t get our hopes up.
In the meantime, we know where we’ll be going for our afternoon snack today!
