Treated the family to a round of SS's this weekend.  They are my kids' new favorite treat.  They can't wait to go back there and get another one!

Tried my very first Shamrock Shake today.

And how were the runs?

Green!

True story...I haven't eaten a McDonald's "hamburger" since April 2001 at a McDonald's inside a Wal-Mart store in Renton, Washington (final resting place of a certain Mr. Jimi Hendrix--the town, not the McDonald's inside the Wal-Mart).  And even that was under duress.
Pretty close to Renton right now...may go have a burger at MickeyDs for ole times sakes

Damn, I'm going to have to make a run tonight and check it out.  One of the only times during the year that I go to McD at all.

Back tonight (I like frappes) and the order window had a sign that said, "Shake machine is down.  No shake products available".

I expected a rampaging mob.

I've heard that's kinda their thing...  run short-run things here and there, can them, something else replaces it...  I dunno.  I loved Oreo frappes and then they took them away.  I felt like they stole a bit of my soul that day.

My local McD's don't serve them for whatever reason. My post from a few years ago, when I was out of town, was the first and only time I've ever had one.

Honestly I didn't even know these were a thing until this thread started.

Yeah, they were popular when we were kids in places with lots of people with Irish ancestry - places where Saint Patrick's Day was big.

I still remember the commercial:

Grabbed one dahntahn.  Kinda cold to be walking around drinking a shake, but it was tasty.

Had to drive to a few different places before I was able to find one, but found one last night.  Tasty.  Definitely going to have to make a run with the boys tomorrow after their basketball games as a treat.
