We may only be a few days into February, but McDonald's is already preparing for St. Patrick's Day. On Wednesday (February 5) the fast food chain revealed when the popular Shamrock Shake would be hitting menus in 2020, as well as revealing there's a new minty treating coming our way this year.
According to Delish,the Shamrock Shake will be coming back to McDonald's menus nationwide on February 19. While the return of the Shamrock Shake is always good news, this year's comeback is even sweeter than expected. This is the first time the St. Patrick's Day-themed dessert will be available nationwide since 2017.
Not only will Shamrock Shakes finally be back nationwide in 2020, McDonald's also revealed a new menu item that will delight Oreo, McFlurry and Shamrock Shake fans. So, basically everybody, TBH. The Oreo Shamrock McFlurry will debut on the same day as Shamrock Shake's return to McDonald's menus. This new dessert consists of vanilla soft serve blended with Shamrock flavor and Oreo cookie pieces. How good does that sound?
"We're excited to serve up a new way to experience the one-of-a-kind Shamrock flavor in our new Oreo Shamrock McFlurry,"Linda VanGosen, McDonald's vice president of menu innovation, said in a press release. "Our chefs worked to get the perfect balance of Oreo cookies and mint for this new delicious dessert. We can't wait for customers to get a taste this spring."
Both the original Shamrock Shake and the Oreo Shamrock McFlurry will only be available for a limited-time only. Since it's themed for St. Patrick's Day (March 17), customers can expect these minty drinks to be around for at least a month after they drop.
