I've never heard of a Shamrock Shake. Is it green, and what's the flavor?

The Shamrock Shake, a green, mint-flavored milkshake, is a seasonal dessert sold at McDonald's during March to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. The Shamrock Shake was first introduced in 1970, and is credited with helping pave the way for other seasonal drinks, including Starbucks Coffee's pumpkin spice and eggnog lattes. The ingredient list for the shamrock shake syrup includes high fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, water, sugar, natural flavor (plant source), xanthan gum, citric acid, sodium benzoate (preservative), yellow 5, blue 1. These are not the same ingredients included in the vanilla shake syrup.

BTW: on my way home from class last night, I stopped at Chick-fil-a and got a banana pudding shake. Holy hell that is good stuff. They even have the crunchy wafer bits in there.

Unfortunately McD's made some major changes to the Shamrock Shake this year and really fucked it up.

It used to be a pretty thick shake, but now it's a lot more watery and runny. They also added whipped cream and a cherry on top for some reason, and they're serving it in the "McCafe" cups instead of the standard soda cups, so a "large" is actually even smaller than a "medium" used to be.

you mean the cup didn't have a vaguely offensive Irish Grimace on it?

This is the worst time of the year.

Whenever it's Shamrock Shake season, every McDonald's shake machine in a 20 mile radius from where I live magically breaks.

Such a tease.

I had never heard of the Shamrock Shake. I will now seek one out.

How minty is this motherfucker? I have an version to foods that are overwhelming, particularly when peppermint oil is involved.

This is incorrect. It is always a good time to go to McDonald's, however, some times of the year are better than others. The Shamrock Shake is one of those times. The McRib is another.
