SHAKE IT.

Posted on

1. WHAT IS IT?

McDonald's

A seasonal minty ice cream shake with a touch of vanilla and just a wee little sprinkle of leprechaun tears. Happy tears, obviously. McDonald's offers it in the weeks leading up to St. Patrick's Day.

2. What does it have to do with St. Patrick's day?

It's GREEN. Like... St. Patrick was?

3. How do they get it that color?!

Who hurt you? NO. IT'S NEVER TOO COLD FOR A SHAMROCK SHAKE.

5. How minty is it, really?

It's like if a mint plant gently kissed a scoop of vanilla ice cream and then both danced together on a cloud.

6. Wait, so it isn't lime-flavored?

No, but it used to be!

7. Are you SURE? I'm tasting lime here.

TBH, people keep arguing about this and probably always will. It tastes like GREEN. Let's just all agree on that.
