It may be still windy and cold throughout many areas of the country right now, but McDonald’s is growing back green a little early.
The Shamrock Shake, the fast-food chain’s by far most popular milkshake, will make a huge excitement by returning on February 21, according to McDonald’s.
About the Shamrock Shake, people can order the Oreo Shamrock McFlurry, which is incorporated with crushed Oreo cookies and debuted two years ago. (Better so far, you could indeed make your own Shamrock Shake recipe at home.)
The minty-cool flavor combined with vanilla soft-serve is a fan favorite, and now the system has revealed the heretofore unrecognized “special ingredient” that helps to give the milkshake its legendary green hue.
People have been flaunting Shamrock Shake-inspired nails done and style for years to represent the famous color—and today we eventually know the actual deal. McDonald’s disclosed the hex color code for the trademark shake in a press release: #cbf2ac.
Mega-fans of the color can now go to their nearby hardware store and have paint blended to the specific Shamrock Shake color.
“The only thing more heartening than the great flavor of a Shamrock Shake is the way that minty green hue chases away the ‘won’t-winter-ever-end’ blues,” McDonald’s said.
“We’ve never revealed the secret recipe that turns Shamrock Shake green in our 50+ years of providing this tasty treat. That is, until now.”
McDonald’s also intimated in the update that something else minty-green was in the appears to work. All we can do now is wait and see what it is!
“Beginning February 21, our Shamrock green hex code may just unlock another tasty secret,” the system added. “If you know where to look, that is. If you are the first to solve the mystery, you will receive a special gift from us.”
McDonald’s will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day on February 15, 2021, so get there early to avoid missing out on Shamrock Shakes and the Oreo Shamrock McFlurry. These items, like every other year, are only valid for a limited time. you should order Both as soon as possible.
Don’t worry if your timetable is too full and you can’t walk out to get yourself one. You can always have this Shamrock goodness delivered to your door by McDelivery.
The actual Shamrock Shake is only available for order at McDonald’s for a short time each year (from the end of February to the beginning of March). So to enjoy this delicious drink anytime, you can try making one at your home.
What Is It Like to Eat?
Minty with a creamy texture. McDonald’s webpage lists the following ingredients: lowered vanilla ice cream, whipped light cream, and “Shamrock Shake Syrup.” you can substitute peppermint extract and green food coloring for the syrup. A word of caution: a little bit of the extract goes a long way.
Is It Good to Insert Alcohol?
YES! For various reasons, McDonald’s does not offer a boozy variant. When making this at home, however, you can add as much as you would like. You can use either plain or flavored vodka.
Should I Add Ice Cream?
Yes, ice cream is essential in any good milkshake. You could follow in the footsteps of the fast-food industry and order a lowered pint. It adds a decadent and special touch to the milkshake. In a pinch, milk can be swapped.
