It's green, it's minty and it's BACK!
McDonald's seasonal mint-flavored Shamrock Shake officially returned to select menus nationwide. The shake was first launched in 1970 and has since built almost a "cult-like following."

You’re in the @McDonalds drive-thru with your friend Carl.
You say, “Ooo! I’m gonna get a Shamrock Shake, you want one too?!”
Carl says, “Nah, they’re gross.”
Carl is no longer your friend. Call us and we’ll remove Carl from your car.

You can tell me a McDonalds shamrock shake is a 1,000 calorie green chemical of sugar and actual garbage and I'm still gonna drink it

A press release describes the shake has a "creamy vanilla soft serve blended with Shamrock Shake syrup." The shake is then "topped with delicious whipped topping."

This year, Shamrock Shake lovers will be able to find a location that serves the shake with McDonald's official “Shamrock Shake Finder app” for iOS and Android phones. According to the press release, fans will also be able to swap Shamrock Shake-themed stickers and raise a shake with friends to toast St. Patrick's Day.
The app even has a special augmented reality feature for anyone who downloads it on an iPhone X.
The company has not specifically stated how long the Shamrock Shake will be available, so get one while you can!
