Kiss Me, I'm Part Irish! Haha. I know this is probably the quad-zillionth post out there on the limited time Shamrock Shake at Mickey D's but here goes mine.
And just in time to try the watered down version according to Ridiculous Food Society of Upstate New York and a Serious Eats article from last year. The current iteration is supposedly less minty and the newer whip cream and cherry garnish a distraction.
What did I think? It was better than I thought. Nothing I'd crave again, but this is coming from a person that aside from Mojito's and Doublemint Gum, never really cared for sweet minty flavors. So I wouldn't be upset if they reformulated it back to satisfy the Shamrock Shake purists since I'd probably be sticking to Wendy's Chocolate Frosty anyway.
The crisp salty fries were good as always and the cheeseburger was actually hot.. Maybe got lucky this lunch hour after all? ;)
