A frustrated McChronicles fan had this to offer; a tribute to the sometimes elusive seasonal delight:
"I took the kids to McD tonite on the way home... I spent 3 miles convincing them that they'd love a nice green Shamrock Shake...being so close to St Patty's Day and all...I figured they just had to have them.....ummm no. .. (so I went to plan B...root beers.)
"Now...I imagine its been years since I had one myself and think that the only other shake variation I can remember even vaguely may have been some kinda banana concoction...but the Shamrock Shake ....the green nectar of the Gods.... now there was some powerful branding... So powerful in fact that I've been carrying around the subliminal seed of green milkshakes for decades waiting for the right time to pass it on to another generation.
"So I'm left wondering what happened to them? A mystery as great as what ever happened to the Grimmace's other set of arms......
"I found these links...maybe the "Smoking McChronicles" can investigate in depth:
