I was shocked to find out recently that Shamrock Shakes are only available in some areas of the U.S.
And how lucky I am to live in one of those regional areas, allowing me to enjoy a delicious minty Shamrock Shake every March!
Huge shoutout to my friend Erin who asked about the Shamrock Shake and got blank stares from employees at 2 Mcdonald locations in Texas.
Shamrock Shake devotees are everywhere -there's even a website devoted to Shamrock Shake sightings.
Is this phenomenon just a U.S. thing, or do they have Shamrock Shakes in Ireland?
Well, I'm happy to report that they do exist in Ireland but only during March (Kris received confirmation from Dublin last week).
So RUN, don't walk, to your local Mcdonald's!
Or make your own Shamrock Shake at home from this copycat recipe:
