Arcade in the Sky Blog: Shamrock Shake

Shamrock Shake

There are legends of mysterious drink only available after Valentines day and before St. Patrick's day. It is said to be the most delicious of its ilk. It is also impossible to taste because it is always missing.

Hard to believe that any food item on the menu at McDonald's could be hard-to-find. 'McDonald's' is practically an analogue for 'ubiquitous' in this country. But the shamrock shake is always either sold out, or not supported at that particular site.

I stopped into a McDonald's the very day after Valentine's and I still could not get a shake. After weeks of searching, however, I did find one. It was a the McDonald's a few blocks from the Menlo Park Mall in Edison, NJ. I just happened to stop in there for breakfast, and there it was! Having ice cream for breakfast might be inappropriate, but I was not going to let this opportunity slip through my fingers.

So, how was it?

Delicious. McDonald's shakes are by nature low-quality. The only thing they do well is Vanilla. When you ask for a chocolate or strawberry, they just squirt sauce onto the vanilla ice cream. They don't even mix it up to try to fake it. However, adding the mint to the vanilla works. They harmonize in ways the other combinations don't. This shake is definitely worth tracking down! I highly recommend it!
