Are you ready for Shamrock Shake season? McDonald’s just announced that official date for the triumphant return of the fan favorite seasonal treat. Move over Valentine’s Day, because February 15 is the date to mark on your calendar.
After last year’s 50th anniversary celebration, people’s love of the iconic Shamrock Shake is clear. While some people might wish that this sweet treat is available all year long, it is only a springtime offering. How many shakes will you enjoy this year?
From the subtle green color to the slightly minty flavor, that first sip will make you feel that spring is here. It doesn’t matter if a groundhog predicts more winter, there is snow on the ground or you are still in your lounge pants from 2020, Shamrock Shake season is a reason to celebrate.
Will the OREO Shamrock McFlurry return with McDonald’s Shamrock Shake?
To many McDonald’s fans’ delight, the OREO Shamrock McFlurry is coming back, too. Last year was the debut of the special seasonal frozen treat. It was met with a huge response. While that OREO McFlurry is always a tasty treat, the minty flavor and color is too good to pass over.
While this particular seasonal treat always has much fanfare, it brings up an interesting question. Why aren’t there other seasonal offerings in the McDonald’s line-up? There are many limited-edition menu items, like the McRib, that come and go off the McDonald’s menu. At some point, could McDonald’s add a fall flavored shake that would captivate customers as much as this springtime option?
Although some people might head to McDonald’s on February 15 to get these seasonal desserts, don’t forget that the Spicy Chicken McNuggets and Mighty Hot Sauce are back on the menu. And, if you are a little intimidated by the heat, those frozen desserts can help to tame the flame.
