Day 76 - Shake

Today being St. Patrick's day, I thought I'd try the Shamrock Shake that everyone raves about at McDonalds. I first ordered a chocolate shake as I wasn't quite ready to face my fear of the green monster, but once at the drive-thru window to pay I saw the Shamrock eye-balling me. I changed my mind and inconveniently asked to change my order. I'm sure the staff did not appreciate my last minute change up but none the less, I received my Shamrock shake and drove away. I quickly unwrapped the straw (after taking numerous pictures of said shake for my blog) anticipating minty-goodness.

I think I took half a sip of the neon green, semi solid beverage and my taste buds voted an immediate "no". I took another taste and couldn't convince myself to drink anymore. I stowed the shake in the freezer in hopes it would be consumed by the visiting boyfriend, but alas, he didn't want it either. Maybe if I keep it in there long enough, I can auction it off on E-bay to a desperate Shamrock shake fan who can't wait until their return next year. Fear of the unknown conquered, and let it be known, from now on I'm sticking with chocolate!

  1. Funny you go a few thousand miles form Ireland and you can purchase a shamrock shake. Here in the UK we have never heard of such a silly idea !!! :)

    Cant say I feel like I am missing out, no artificial colours in that then ????
