McDonald’s makes everyone’s day lucky as the beloved Shamrock Shake is making its way back to Eastern North Carolina. Starting today, local customers can enjoy the cult favorite at any area restaurant while supplies last.
The famously green treat is made with McDonald’s vanilla reduced-fat ice cream, Shamrock Shake syrup and topped with whipped cream and a cherry. As many know, this seasonal classic appears only once a year around the St. Patrick’s Day holiday – sometimes only in select locations. In 2012, for the first time in history, the Shamrock Shake was available nationwide for a limited time.
Since its introduction in 1970, the Shamrock Shake has been a McDonald’s customer favorite. In 1974, donations from Shamrock Shake sales helped establish the first Ronald McDonald House in Philadelphia.
That giving tradition continues this year, as from Feb. 17 through March 31, half of 25 cents from each Shamrock Shake purchased in Eastern North Carolina will be donated to the Ronald McDonald House of Eastern North Carolina. The other half will be donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities of North Carolina (RMHC of NC).
Again, that’s Feb 17 – March 31 to help the Ronald McDonald House of ENC and Ronald McDonald House Charities. There are a few charities that are near and dear to my heart, and Ronald McDonald is one of them. I know many people who have had them step in and help them when they had a child in the hospital. Please join me in supporting them and getting a sweet treat for yourself! 🙂
