McDonald's sold over 60 million of these since first introduced in 1970.

According to spoonuniversity.com a large one of these has about 820 That is the equivalent of 1.25 Big Macs, 1.5 large fries, 2.5 Sundaes, or 3 Egg McMuffins. Oh, my word. I should really say, it's Shawn Michaels's favorite thing in the whole wide world. Although, he puts his fries in it, yuck. And, he has a problem with me dipping all my food in ranch dressing. Anyway, McDonald's Shamrock Shake is available right now at your local participating McDonald's.

Why is McDonald's Shamrock Shake so popular?

It's minty. It's green. It's "springy". There are so many reasons why this would be so popular. I was talking to Judy from Toms River and she said to me when talking about the Shamrock Shake, "Oh Sue, it is the "best" thing ever." She gets one every year when they first come out. "It makes me so happy," she says. That's what it's all about, it makes her happy.

I was at my Bayville McDonald's last night and they had the Shamrock Shakes ready to go. Nationally some stores are rolling them out on February 21st, 2022. Some McDonald's have them now. Why wait? Bring them out now.

McDonald's announced extra secrets that are on their menus this spring.

Along with the McDonald's Shamrock Shake, the Oreo Shamrock McFlurry will be available for a limited time, also. Their "Menu Hack" is available. You can choose how you want their sandwiches. Take a Big Mack and add a McChicken and add a File-o-Fish and there's your sandwich. WOW, geez. It's called the Land, Air, and Sea. Another "Menu Hack", the Crunch Double is a Double Cheeseburger, 6 pc. Chicken McNuggets, and their BBQ Sauce.
