Winters in my town are so cold and dreary. We usually get a lot of snow and the temperature is fairly cold as well. There isn’t much to look forward to in winter…except for Shamrock Shakes at McDonald’s! I know spring is right around the corner when I see Shamrock Shakes on the menu board at my local McDonald’s.
There’s nothing quite like the sweet, minty goodness of a Shamrock Shake. I like to grab one on my way home from work and then sit on my sun porch and enjoy it. It’s a little bit of me time after a hard days work. I let the sun shine on my face, reflect on my day, and sip on my Shamrock Shake.
If that wasn’t enough this year McDonald’s is introducing McCafe Shamrock Chocolate Madness drinks! That’s right, now my favorite McCafe beverages come with a chocolaty twist! My absolute favorite in this line of beverages is the Shamrock Chocolate Shake. It’s chocolate shake on the bottom, Shamrock Shake on the top and it’s all topped off with whipped topping and a cherry! Chocolaty mint has always been a favorite combination of mine and I love that I can enjoy it in shake form. Plus they have Shamrock Chocolate Chip Frappe if shakes aren’t your thing.
But since it gets cold in the winter sometimes I’d like to bundle up on my couch in front of the first with a warm beverage. Now I can enjoy a Shamrock Hot Chocolate or a Shamrock Mocha! How awesome is it that I can get my favorite flavors in a hot McCafe beverage? I love having the choice of hot or cold in the new McCafe Shamrock Chocolate Madness drinks.
But with all good things they must come to an end. Shamrock Shakes and Shamrock Chocolate Madness drinks are only available now through March 21 so get them before they are gone! Chocolate flavor and mint is the perfect way to help get you your through the day or to sip on as an afternoon treat.
If you want to try all the Shamrock Chocolate Madness drinks make sure you check out the McDonald’s app. When you buy five drinks you get one free so try all five and then get your favorite one free! So make sure you give all of them a try during this Shamrock Season.
Plus there’s another great reason to love #ShamrockSeason this year. If you buy one of the Shamrock beverages between March 11-March 17 McDonald’s will donate 25 cents per beverage to Ronald McDonald House Charities®. I actually volunteer for the baking club at my local Ronald McDonald House and I know the families there are so appreciative of what the charity does for them so make sure you get out between March 11-March 17 and help make a difference.
