It's Shamrock Shake time!

Get 'em while they're still here!

Or perhaps you'd prefer a Guinness shamrock? ;)

I need to try both! Cool!

You know what I don't understand? Why don't the McDonalds in the UK have the shamrock shake??? After all, we are closer to Ireland.
What does a shamrock shake taste like?
*kisses* HH

5 Star Foodie: Maybe not both at the same time!(mixing drinks never works out well for me LOL)

Heavenly Housewife: I wonder why they don't have them in England, I confirmed last year that they have them in Dublin, but only in March. They taste like a vanilla shake with some mint flavoring. It's an annual tradition for me :)

Jenn said...

I'll try both, too. But on separate tries. hehehe... I love the shamrock on the Guinness. That's really cool.

I did not know that McDonald's had this green shake ;-)

I'll send you Mickey's red bean pie if you send me these, HAHAHA

I know they are selling shamrock shakes in my hometown - and I am going there on Friday to get one! I've never had it!

OH! I read that they are opening up a famous Vancouver Hot Dog place in NYC! But I can't remember what it is called! I want to say the name Joe has something to do with it, but I'm not sure! Regardless, I thought of you when I read that!

Jenn: I got that pint with the shamrock on top at the Guinness Storehouse (in Dublin) last year. There was one bartender who specialized in etching a shamrock into the foam!

Juliana: Unfortunately the shamrock shake isn't offered in all locations. I hope it makes an appearance in CA one day!

Kenny: DEAL! Kris loves red bean :)

Teanna: Your first shamrock shake -how exciting! I hope you love it :) Not everyone seems to share my enthusiasm for this weird green shake making me wonder whether it might just be a nostalgic thing.

And YES!!! JAPADOG may be coming to NYC!

Oh my gawd, you send me back to my childhood! I loved those Shamrock shakes as a kid. Maybe it was the green that I couldn't get enough of or that cool, minty taste. Whatever it was, it was a must-have. ;)

Carolyn: Still wondering whether I would like the shamrock shake if I never had it as a kid. It may just be the green coloring that lures me in every year!
