McDonald's bright-green Shamrock Shake, a minty beverage only available around St. Patrick's Day each year, has a huge cult following.  Maybe not as devoted a fan base as the McRib, but a following none the less.

Shamrock Shake

The shake counts over 21,000 fans on its unofficial Facebook page. Not ALL McDonald's loacation participate in the return of the Shamrock Shake, but fanatics have created aShamrock Shake locator on the web. (And it appears you'll have no problem getting your hands on one along the front range)

I wouldn't call myself a shamrock shake enthusiast, but I'm sure I'll be gulping down a few of these in the coming weeks.  I'm a sucker for these sort of things.  And always a sucker for milkshakes.

Check out this vintage Shamrock Shake commercial from 1983.

I might just have to get myself a leprechaun hats and learn the riverdance so I can fully re-live the nostalgia.

Need to find a McDonald's close by? Or just drive around for a few minutes and I'm sure you'll pass two or three.
