Shamrock Shakes are back!

There once was a critic who'd break
If he didn't have a Shamrock Shake
To McDonald's he went
His money he spent
And his delight was surely not fake

Okay, so my limerick skills need polishing. I challenge you to do better -- who knew there are syllable requirements to go with the AABBA rhyming scheme?

The point is the delicious, green, slightly minty Shamrock Shakes are back for another St. Patrick's day season! Actually, they've been at some McDonald's for weeks, but as the big day approaches they should definitely have arrived at a golden arches near you.

The Shamrock Shake is a perennial favorite here at Rick's Food Critique -- it joins green tea on the shortlist of green drinks with good karma. The one I had was rich and delicious, with just the right base of mint flavor. My recommendation: Try one sooner rather than later.
