The Shamrock Shake comes back to McDonald's today! But there's a twist. Because it's the 50th anniversary of the item, McDonald's will also be offering the shake as an Oreo/mint McFlurry. Here's the deal:
St. Patrick’s Day might be on March 17 but the folks at McDonald’s are betting on the luck of the Irish with the return of the Shamrock Shake on Wednesday.
The mint-flavored and vibrantly green milkshake, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this season, will launch nationally while supplies last. It is one of McDonald’s longest-running limited-edition offerings.
“We’ve been serving the iconic, cult-favorite Shamrock Shake for 50 years and it’s become synonymous with McDonald’s ever since,” said McDonald’s Vice President of Menu Innovation, Linda VanGosen about the iconic beverage’s return.
Aside from the standard milkshake version, this year’s Shamrock Shake will also be available as an OREO Shamrock McFlurry for a celebratory twist on the sweet treat’s five decades on the market.
This says to me that St. Patrick's Day is almost here, which means spring will be here soon! In the meantime, will you be getting the Shamrock Shake?
