For a limited time, the McDonald’s Shamrock Shake is back on the menu.  This time around there are five members of the Shamrock family… the original Shamrock Shake, the Shamrock Chocolate Chip Frappe, the Chocolate Shamrock Shake, Shamrock Mocha, and Shamrock Hot Chocolate.  The new Chocolate Shamrock Shake pictured below is chocolate shake on the bottom and Shamrock up top, plus whipped topping, green sugar crystals, and a chocolate syrup drizzle.Shamrock Shake

    Ignorant question, but Shamrock shakes are just mint, right? So the Shamrock mocha is a mint mocha?

      Essentially, yes.
      I work there part-time and it’s a chocolate mint syrup we use for the mochas/frappes and to be completely honest it tastes like a slightly sweeter version of the peppermint mochas they sold. Still, I think it’s delicious and I think the green sprinkles are adorable; feel free to ask for milkshakes to be mixed with strawberry or vanilla, too, and feel free to ask for different bases on the frappe! We add the mint syrup to the blender jar then press a special button for a base that’s a mix of caramel and mocha frappe, but if you want more caramel or more mocha we can make a regular caramel or mocha frappe and then add the shamrock syrup for you! I don’t think people realize how many options they have when ordering these! Also, the mochas come hot or iced and I think you can taste it more iced.

    I’ve been ordering the Chocolate Shamrock shake for at least a decade now, but it’s always been a struggle since they have to manually relay the instructions “half shamrock half chocolate” to the person at the shake machine. I’m glad there will finally be a register button for it.

    Hmmm but will there be a button for it??? Somehow I’m skeptical I can get any of these at my local McDonald’s. Plus I didn’t see any of them on the McDonald’s website yesterday.

    Shamrock Shakes basically died with the advent of McCafe. They used to be good,amd now they’re not.
