Where is the Shamrock Shake?

16 Mar

On the minds of tens of thousands of gourmet officianados, where can they find the ever-elusive Shamrock Shake?

This minty libation appeared in the 1970’s and for awhile became a traditional St. Patrick’s Day drink for kids my age at the time. I tried it, and did’nt like it for various reasons ( I was a rather persnikety kid when it came to weird-colored food, much less detesting  all things mint flavored other than chewing gum and iced tea).

Then the super-smart brainiacs at McHeadquarters decided, Hey, let’s take this ever-so-popular flavor, and stop making it. Every year. I would overhear someone say, “I had a Shamrock Shake and it was sooo good!” Then, rumors swirled around that the shake’s flavor wasn’t the same. McDonald’s denied any changes to the recipe but now it was too late: If you were a fan of the shake, you could’t find it. Last year, the kind folks at McDonald’s re-released the Shamrock Shake for a limited time.

Here is the dilema, if you will.  Why on earth would McDonalds discontinue this shake, or have they? If you have enjoyed a Shamrock Shake in the last few days, please post the location of the MickeyD’s where you purchased the shake here so that others can find the drink. Don’t be shy, you’ll help a fellow lover of the green shake!

    So I was just talking about this with my drunken Irish coworkers. I found this link that ordinary citizens like yourself put together to locate said Shamrock Shakes.


    There aren’t many here in the district, but I think there maybe a few in the Charm City.
