McDonald's Shamrock Shakes Are Back Again

Hey, heads up, Shamrock Shake fans! They're back at the local McDonald's for a limited time, and for the first time they're being offered nationwide.

I loved Shamrock Shakes when I was a kid, and they're still my faves. Ever since I had my first one when I was eleven, I've looked forward to the St. Patrick's Day season when Mickey Dee's would bring them back.

i don't like the new default way McD's serves their shakes as part of the McCafe lineup, though - really, who needs whipped cream and a cherry on top of a shake?  I got one all decked out in the finery one time, and was totally unimpressed.  Just plain for me from now on, please.

Glad you likes 'em. For me ... meh. Green slime pumped full of air and oversugared. I thought they were ubiquitous around wearing of the Orange time. Had no idea they were regional. I *always* make it a point to wear an orange shirt on March 17th. Although most do not "get it".

ENJOY!!!

Agreed on the unnecessary "McCafe" presentation, I rolled thru the drive-up window and was equally shocked when my normal choc shake came out looking all froofy. It didn't reeeeally matter I suppose, but it kinda threw me off. Little things like that, huh? Weird.
