We’re not even on Valentine’s Day yet, but fans of McDonald’s iconic Shamrock Shake can already make plans to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. McDonald’s announced that the beloved treat — along with the newer favorite, the OREO Shamrock McFlurry — will be rolling out on February 20. Both returning fan favorites will be available in restaurants across the United States for a limited time.
The beloved Shamrock Shake was first introduced in 1970 and has been a favorite ever since. It’s made with McDonald’s creamy vanilla soft serve ice cream mixed with Shamrock Shake syrup and topped with whipped cream.
The OREO Shamrock McFlurry is a newer addition to the festive lineup. That treat made its debut in 2020 and is described as being mixed with crushed OREO cookies in the same combination of vanilla soft ice cream and Shamrock Shake syrup.
“We’ve been serving the iconic, cult-favorite Shamrock Shake for 50 years and it’s become synonymous with McDonald’s ever since,” Linda VanGosen, McDonald’s Vice President of Menu Innovation, shared in a statement back in 2020. “We are excited to serve a new way to experience the unique Shamrock flavor in our new OREO Shamrock McFlurry. Our chefs have worked to find the perfect balance of OREO biscuits and mint for this new delicious dessert. We can’t wait for customers to taste this spring.”
