Y!: # 1 Posted on 13.5.07 1343.11 Reposted on: 13.5.14 1344.48 Be forewarned, fans of McDonald's fast food and/or nostalgia: The "Shrek 3" tie-in green milkshake is **NOT** the same thing as the beloved Shamrock Shake from my youth. It's mint chocolate. It's fine on its own merit, but it's a bit of a surprise if you expected a mouthful of your childhood. Promote this thread!

I always assumed it was mint-ish.

Y!: # 4 Posted on 13.5.07 1941.13 Reposted on: 13.5.14 1944.23 I haven't seen it since I was probably 12. Wikipedia claims you can get it in the Northeast U.S. in March but I haven't had any luck. But yes, it was a tasty minty flavor.

Two of my kids love it. The other one throws up at the hint of mint. They tried out the Shrek Shake this weekend and were forewarded by me that it was NOT a Shamrock Shake. They still devoured it and gave it a thumbs up.

The guy that I talked with told me that it was at the store manager's (he may have meant owner's though) discretion whether they were going to run they were going to participate in a special or run a food item. This explained why one McDonalds in San Diego always had the McRib year-round, and this particular McD never had the Shamrock Shake. Ask your local McDonald's employee what's up. //edit: We had the Shamrock shake here in March until the shake machine broke, so I only got one. The Shrek shake is OK but its more of a "Thin-mint" than a Shamrock shake. (edited by Guru Zim on 21.5.07 0921)

(the mint is a mix-in, at least at my McDonalds)

In my experience it comes from the nozzle as the flavor - no mixing in.
