THE TASTE OF THE IRISH


MacDonald’s Shamrock Shakes are back!

Shamrock shake season runs through the last week of March at participating McDonald’s restaurants.

This is year 43 for the calorie filled St. Paddy’s Day minty treat.  

Come on, admit it,  you’re excited!

A 16-ounce serving of the Shamrock Shake has 550 calories, 13 grams of fat, 8 grams of saturated fat, 1 gram of trans fat, 50 milligrams of cholesterol, 180 milligrams of sodium, no fiber, 82 grams of sugar and 13 grams of protein. The Shamrock Shake is made with McDonald's low-fat vanilla soft-serve ice cream and Shamrock Shake syrup, and then topped with whipped cream.

I know it sounds bad but it is much better choice than a a 16-ounce Dairy Queen Blizzard which has 1170 calories and 152 grams of sugar!

Savor the moment, and every single drop.

Remember, this treat is only available for a limited time.
