McDonald’s Shamrock Shake: The Perfect Day Date


This post is sponsored by McDonald’s, but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

After 15 years, two full time jobs and two kids who are involved in everything, creating time where the hubs and I spend thirty minutes together is challenging. Sometimes, it is downright impossible. One of our New Year’s Resolutions as a couple was to spend more time together. Which is why McDonald’s new chocolaty Shamrock Shake provided the first perfect opportunity.

While Valentine’s Day is nice and romantic, those days do not happen too often around here for us. But grabbing a quick drink at McDonald’s is something we can actually accomplish.

I love everything mint flavored, so having a McDonald’s Shamrock Shake is a seasonal tradition for me. Every year around St. Patrick’s Day, these mint flavor packed shakes arrive at McDonald’s, but this year there is a new twist: you can now have a Chocolate Shamrock Shake. One half chocolate flavor and one half mint, it is the absolute perfect combination.

For our day date, I ordered the Chocolate Shamrock Shake and hubby had the original Shamrock Shake. I caught him more than once trying to steal a sip of mine.

We laughed, planned and caught up on the last few weeks. Why is it life is so crazy all the time? Yikes.
While we did not try everything on the new Shamrock Chocolate Madness product menu, we thought about it. This St. Patrick’s Day season, there are also new flavors such as Shamrock Hot Chocolate, Shamrock Mocha and a Shamrock Chocolate Chip Frappe.

We had such a great time having no one say our names for an hour, we will be doing it again next week. Pouring into one another as husband and wife is important, but loving each other as people is paramount to a relationship too. So very thankful for the small moments and great treats to make it worth it.
