It is getting close to St. Patrick's Day (One of my favorite holidays) and that means one thing......SHAMROCK SHAKES!!! Ever want a new twist on an old flavor? McDonald's is taking care of that.

There is nothing better than a delicious Shamrock Shake from McDonald's around the end of February. Now, according to Brand Eating, they are going to be rolling out this year with a new twist to an old flavor. One word.......Chocolate!

Here are some of the new flavors of not only shakes, but coffee that will be shamrocked:

"- Original Shamrock Shake - A blend of vanilla soft serve and mint-flavored Shamrock Shake syrup. New this year is a sprinkle of green sugar crystals to go with the standard whipped topping and maraschino cherry.

- New Chocolate Shamrock Shake - A layered shake with chocolate shake on the bottom and Shamrock Shake on top. It comes topped with whipped topping, green sugar crystals, and a drizzle of chocolate syrup.

- New Shamrock Chocolate Chip Frappe - A Chocolate Chip Frappe (mocha frappe base, caramel frappe base, chocolate chips, and ice) blended with Shamrock Shake syrup and finished with whipped topping, green sugar crystals, and a drizzle of chocolate syrup.

- New Shamrock Hot Chocolate - A hot chocolate (steamed milk and chocolate syrup) with Shamrock Shake syrup

- New Shamrock Mocha - A mocha (chocolate syrup, espresso, and steamed milk) with Shamrock Shake syrup."

There is a website that allows you to tell people where you found your Shamrock Shake. It is called I am not sure how McDonald's did not snag that web address, but someone is very happy they did.

This should be a great addition to the lineup. Bring on the shakes!!!
