The pumpkin spice latte has a season and to make things equal, so does the shamrock shake.


Shamrock shake season will officially begin Wednesday, February 19th at a McDonald's location near you. The nationwide rollout on the 19th marks the 50th anniversary of the greenish looking shake and this year McDonals's is celebrating with a new Oreo Shamrock McFlurry.

The new Oreo Shamrock McFlurry is a blend of McDonald's vanilla soft serve, tinted with the green Shamrock syrup and blended with Oreo pieces to create a mint-chocolate frozen treat. McDonald's Vice President of Menu Innovation, Linda VanGosen says via a company press release,

We’ve been serving the iconic, cult-favorite Shamrock Shake for 50 years and it’s become synonymous with McDonald’s ever since. We’re excited to serve up a new way to experience the one-of-a-kind Shamrock flavor in our new OREO Shamrock McFlurry. Our chefs worked to get the perfect balance of OREO cookies and mint for this new delicious dessert. We can’t wait for customers to get a taste this spring."

This is one season that I'm looking forward to. I'm not much of a pumpkin spice kind of guy, but when it comes to a Shamrock Shake, well I'm there and now that there's an Oreo Shamrock McFlurry involved - game over! You'll find me in line on the 19th guaranteed.
