I had my annual Shamrock Shake from McDonald's today. It makes me feel sort of weird and old that this is the third consecutive shake that I have shared on the ol' blog. Hopefully I am not turning into weird, old, food-blog guy yet -- I am only closing in on 32.
Anyhow, apparently the big news this year is that the sweet nectar of Uncle O'Grimacey has gone "nationwide." I never even realized that the Shamrock Shake was not previously available everywhere. You learn something new everyday.
I have noticed that there tend to be small changes in the flavor/presentation of the shake from year to year so I thought I would begin to document them here.
As I stated in my 2011 post, I was a bit perturbed when McD's made the switch to the clear plastic, dome lidded cup and they have stuck with that decision this year. I prefer to take my shakes out of waxed paper thank you very much. We still have the whipped cream, but no cherry this time(good, I hate cherries). The color seemed less aggressively green this annum, and I feel like the flavor was a bit minty-er and slightly less sweet. Maybe I am just imagining these changes, anyone else out there pay as much attention to the Shamrock Shake issue as do I? Can you confirm or refute
