If you were listening to Chris & The Crew this morning, you may have heard us mention that McDonald's announced that their super-popular Shamrock Shakes would return to restaurants on Feb. 19.

It's the 50th anniversary of the mint-flavored ice cream treat.  McDonald’s Vice President of Menu Innovation, Linda VanGosen, said, “We’ve been serving the iconic, cult-favorite Shamrock Shake for 50 years and it’s become synonymous with McDonald’s ever since.”

The return of the Shamrock Shake wasn't McDonald's only announcement.  The fast-food chain also revealed that for the first time ever, they would be offering an OREO® Shamrock McFlurry, which they describe as "creamy, vanilla soft serve with our unmistakable Shamrock flavor and OREO® cookie pieces blended throughout "

 



McDonald's also
teased that they would soon be "revealing even more ways to get in on the golden celebration of the Shamrock Shake."

Shamrock Shakes are available for a limited time each year around St. Patrick's Day, although you may remember that Philadelphia-area McDonald's restaurants offered the shake last fall in honor of the Philadelphia Eagles.
