It’s March and it’s that time again—time to enjoy a SHAMROCK SHAKE! Here’s a photo of me having one just a few days ago. (Thanks, Sue, for taking the picture.)
And here are some interesting facts about these mint-flavored novelties:
The first Shamrock Shake was introduced in 1970.
A small shake (16 oz) contains 550 calories, 13 grams of fat, and 82 grams of sugar.
This year, for the first time, Shamrock Shakes are available at ALL McDonald’s Restaurants (14,000 locations) throughout the United States until March 25th. (They are also available at participating McDonald’s in Canada and in several other countries for a limited time.)
Shamrock Shakes have a cult following, so I must be a cult member. I’ve enjoyed at least one every year around St. Patrick’s Day since I was a teenager (we won’t count how many years that makes it).
Are you also a Shamrock Shake fan?
