Seriously, I even researched it – before leaving for New York – and was PUMPED after realized it did not exist in Mexico, believe me..I asked…
FOUR different Mcdonald’s in Mexico for the Shamrock Shake, nada, they looked at me like I was crazy and I had to settle for a Oreo Blend shake.
Imagine how disappointed I was when I got to New York, MARCH 19, TWO DAYS after St. Patrick’s, and went to four different locations, and no, one, I mean NO ONE, had the Shamrock Shake. It was freaking travesty.
Heck, even one McDonald’s had the sign up FOR the Shamrock Shake, yet no shake there at all. Nothing. I was so upset, so I did come close, at Mel’s Burger’s I ordered a Mint Chocolate Chip shake, it was DELICIOUS, but it was no Shamrock Shake.
Seriously? TWO DAYS after St. Patrick’s ? I still am burned about that as that was the ONE, single thing, I was looking for. Thanks to this amazing recipe posted on Facebook, I would settle for this, but alas, trying to find rootbeer in Mexico? Um, wow. Dead end. So on my to do list next week? Make homemade rootbeer, make a homemade Shamrock Shake (Thanks Mrs Dixie!) , and make the recipe below. Who’s with me? We’ll make a day of it….:)
No kidding, this sounds amazing – and if you love rootbeer floats, um, DUH!? WHOA! Okay, so I was disappointed and trust me, even though tis was a HUGE, HUGE letdown, the trip overall with the amazing people, and being surrounded by an amazing staff?, it took the cake, so to speak. So all ended well. 😉
