McDonald’s is Shaking Things Up With New Shamrock Shakes, Drinks and a Cool STRAW Innovation (& a Giveaway)


Now that we are well into the beginning of this year, it’s time to take advantage of all of the new things this year has to offer! Just in time for one of our family’s favorite St. Patty’s Day traditions (The Drinking of the Shamrock Shakes), McDonald’s is re-energizing the McCafé brand this year with a series of new menu innovations. These menu items not only include the traditional Shamrock Shake that we have grown to love, but they have also added some fun new twists that I cannot wait to try!

In addition to the ever popular traditional Shamrock Shake, you can now enjoy four additional limited time flavor combinations :

  • Chocolate Shamrock Shake
  • Chocolate Chip Frappe
  • Shamrock Mocha
  • Shamrock Hot Chocolate (YAY to this new option for those chilly March days!)

But guess what?  It doesn’t stop there!  In addition to the new fun drinks on the menu, McDonald’s has created a very special Shake STRAW (Suction Tube for Reverse Axial Withdrawal) that is going to take your Chocolate Shamrock Shake tasting experience to a whole new level! When drinking the Chocolate Shamrock Shake with this Straw, the design allows for advanced flavor flow dynamics which helps deliver an innovative dual-layer shake drinking experience.  The catch?  Less than 2000 of these straws were manufactured and guess what?  McDonalds was generous enough to send one my way for one of my lucky readers to try! Are you as intrigued as I am?  Be sure to enter the giveaway for your chance to experience the STRAW for yourself!

My family and I love enjoying a special Shamrock shake break every year in March.  As a loyal supporter of the Ronald McDonald House Charities, I am so excited to share that McDonald’s will support Ronald McDonald House Charities by donating $.25 for every McCafé Shamrock Chocolate Madness Drink sold during March 11-17, 2017. What a perfect reason to enjoy one of the season’s favorite limited time sweet treats while supporting an absolutely awesome cause!
