Every spring there are a few things that I really look forward to seeing again. One is grass and the other the Shamrock Shake come back to McDonald’s! This year they are having a fun twist on the classic Shamrock Shake with a new Chocolaty Twist! Grabbing your favorite Shamrock Shake isn’t just about getting your sweet tooth on, but also about supporting a great cause; The Ronald McDonald House Charities®.
As a kid, we always loved celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, and to me that meant McDonald’s Shamrock Shakes! Now that I’m a bit older they mean that spring is RIGHT around the corner. It’s still a little bit of nostalgia to grab one when hubby and I are on the road heading to friends’ houses or when we just want to get out because we’ve been cooped up all winter. Now it’s even more fun because for every Shamrock Chocolate Madness drink bought during March 11th- 17th, McDonald’s will donate twenty five cents Ronald McDonald House Charities®!
When Bayla was in the hospital for severe eczema, Ronald McDonald House Charities® really saved the day. One of the last weeks we were at the Clinic unit we had the pleasure of staying in the Ronald McDonald house rather than driving back and forth the two hours between where we lived and the hospital/clinic..
Later on when she attended another program in Denver, Colorado the Ronald McDonald House Charities saved the day again. We were hundreds of miles away from home, plus we had to stay in Denver for whole two weeks. The Ronald McDonald House helped us not have to worry about where we would stay and if we would be comfortable during our stay. It really took a lot of stress off of our minds during a rather difficult time.
Now, back to minty chocolaty deliciousness! If you haven’t gotten one yet, you need to check out the new Chocolate Shamrock Shake! They are available between Feb 7th and March 21st. And before you race off to get one make sure to download the McDonald’s app! There’s a buy five get one free offer for Shamrock Chocolate Madness drinks in that bad boy! Talk about suwheeett!
