The Luck of the Irish – McDonald’s Shamrock Shake #ShamrockShake @McDonaldsATL
As the mother of three Irish children (two born in the month of March alone), we are huge fans of everything St. Patrick’s Day and everything Ireland. My entire family loves the month of March. Even better that the Shamrock Shake is now back!
The Shamrock Shake has been a customer favorite since its introduction in 1970 and joins the McCafe line-up annually around St. Patrick’s Day for a limited time only. In 1974 Shamrock Shake sales helped establish the first Ronald McDonald House.
Shamrock Shake began its national roll-out in early February. It will be available in all participating restaurants nationwide February – March 2013 while supplies last. Shamrock Shake is made with McDonald’s vanilla reduced fat ice cream, Shamrock Shake syrup and topped with real whipped cream and a cherry.
With the national availability, McDonald’s is sharing the fun and delicious taste of Shamrock Shake with the entire country.
