It seems like every major chain restaurant has "secret menu items," and now McDonald's is moving one such item over to the regular menu: the chocolate Shamrock Shake. Brand Eating reports that the new McCafé Shamrock Shake line is already rolling out to some restaurants.
As with any limited-time or seasonal offering, not all McDonald’s franchises are participating, so keep that in mind before you head out early in search of them. Here's what you'll find on that menu:
- Original Shamrock Shake: This year, McDonald’s is adding green-colored sugar crystals on top of the whipped cream, because the shake didn’t already have enough sugar.
- Chocolate Shamrock Shake: The bottom half is chocolate, the top half is mint, it has green sugar crystals and chocolate syrup, and it’s presumably delicious.
- Shamrock Chocolate Chip Frappe: A mocha frappe with added Shamrock Shake syrup.
- Shamrock Hot Chocolate and Shamrock Mocha: These are the regular McCafé menu hot chocolate and mocha beverages, but with shamrock shake syrup added.
