Last Chance for Shamrock Shakes...

I was shocked to find out recently that Shamrock Shakes are only available in some areas of the U.S.

And h
ow 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:

I've never had one - should check it out, I love all kinds of shakes.

I wonder if they still have these now that St. Patrick's Day is over? I hope I didn't miss them! If only McDonald's served pidan (century egg) and congee, I would be on that like nobody's business! I love your congee recipe, and will be trying it soon!

Just wanted to tell you I really like reading your website, so I am giving you the Sisterhood Award. Check it out on my latest blog entry.

Congrats on your award and thank you so much for passing on to me! I am honored!

For some reason I couldn't leave a comment on your new post (no link for comments?), so this is why I'm commenting here :)

That's crazy that they don't have them everywhere. I remember as a kid always having those for St. Patrick's Day. Loved the unusual color.
