One of my bosses just told me last night that he saw Shamrock Shakes at two different McDonald’s in the city. I went to see if he was pulling my leg. It’s true. They’re there! …6th Ave between 22nd & 21st Street, Manhattan.

Every year, we always wonder where we can find Shamrock Shakes. Now they’re back almost everywhere I see. I guess it’s like the McRib. They’re bringing back those rare McDonald’s items that people are always searching for. Why not? Although it’s interesting that I haven’t seen any promotion for this.

I haven’t had a Shamrock Shake since in maybe 28 years. It’s weird saying that. I thought it was going to taste like green flavor. It’s more like mint and the cream on top makes it almost like a sherbert. But all together, it’s almost like Chocolate Chip Mint Sherbert Shake.

550 calories for a small shake. I think it said a large is over 1,000. I also ordered 20 McNuggets (over 900 calories, plus sauces). I don’t think I’ve eaten like this in 28 years.

    Hey, just found your site while looking for..something! Oh, I know what it was, an AWESOME picture of the BK Whopper Bar Pizza deal. NICE!

    Anyway, Shamrock Shakes; aren’t they back like every March/April for St. Patrick’s Day? I’m from Rochester, NY, and like CLOCKWORK they’re back for us every single year.

    That is, of course, -unlike- the McRib which is the abominable snowman of McDonalds (in every meaning of the word..).

    Making my first trip to New York City on Thursday (through the 9th), and I do believe that we’ll hit some of these places. From the little I read of your site, really funny and entertaining (loved the V@getarian deal and the ShakeWeight/Sub thing, haha!). Keep up the good work.

      Cool. Thanks for reading.
      Yeah, Shamrock Shakes! Last Spring, they were at almost every NYC McDonald’s. That never happens. Usually like one or two in the city with rumored reports. Hoping they bring it back nationwide next time around.
