No luck

in my search for a Shamrock Shake. So, a Jack-in-the-Box Andes Mint Shake had to do



Which *may* have been a better alternative, as it

1) is truly mint flavored
2) has bits of Andes chocolate mints in it
3) is made with real ice cream
4) comes with whipped cream and a cherry on top!

Any luck out there?

I was totally insired by your search, but lazyness (and a wee bit of snow) got the best of me. Your Jack-In-The-Box shake looks real good. I love whipped cream and marashino cherries.

I know we have the Shamrock shakes here (saw them at the drive-through the other day), but I don't like them. The shake you've shown here, however... I would like very much. Extra cherries, please.

Just got back from Mickey D's drive thru. They have the Shamrock shake on the menu, but they were out of them.....really, really made me mad. My son and I are on a mission and will try again tomorrow.

I don't think any of the McDonald's around here have them. Then again I'm not about to drive all over to find one! (there are McDonald's all over the place! lol!) I do however, love a Shamrock Shake! No Jack-In-The-Box's here either. Oh well. Guess I will just have to enjoy my Bailey's cupcake! lol! Happy St Patrick's Day!

That looks sooo yummy!!! I have never heard of a shamrock shake.

No Jack-in-the-Boxes here. :( Haven't seen them at McD's either. Funny story. seven years ago, I had my wisdom teeth out and all I wanted was a Shamrock shake. My mom drove ALL around the city, to like five McD's before she found one. Where is the love?

Wow! Shamrock shakes. I have completely forgotten to look for them. I don't think I've had one in years. But I do think you are right on the money with that Jack-In-The-Box concoction. But alas, we do not have one here. :(

OH MY GOD. Shamrock shakes. I have to do a post about this, inspired by YOUR post.

No fair, No fair, No fair! We don't have a Jack-In-The-Box here! Now I am craving a minty shake, and after that description no Shamrock Shake will do!

I got a Shamrock Shake early in the season. It's my little tradition, being a St. Patrick's Day baby. I'm glad I got one early because they all seemed to sell out the week of the big day. This has never happened to me before. Probably some money saving strategy on the part of McD's. Jerks!
