Shamrock Shake 2012

rworange | Mar 10, 2012 06:02 PM

I had to suspend my personal ban on all things McDonald because I was out of the country last year and I missed it. Never mind that I don't know how to say shamrock in Spanish .... shake verde ...it just wasn't a Guatemalan thing.

So I bought one this year. Nice cherry on top ... they should use the ones dyed green though ... we ain't talking anything healthy to begin with here.

They CHANGED it !!!

Why do big companies feel they need to mess with success?

What was that background flavor ... wint-o-green?

It wasn't as creme de menthe tasting as in the past.

Also, it was much sweeter than recall.However, I haven't had a McDonald's shake for years, so they might all be that way.

I used to make a McGrasshopper by combining the chocolate shake with the shamrock. I'm thinking that would be too sweet, so maybe a chocolate Wendie's frostie with the shamrock shake would tone things down a bit ... and Irish whiskey.
