(McDonald's Canada)

It’s official, the famed Shamrock Shake is back at McDonald’s and you’ll be able to enjoy the seasonal treat from now until March 23rd.

Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, you can enjoy the lucky green drink that features McDonald’s creamy vanilla soft serve blended with their signature Shamrock Shake syrup to give it that minty flavour.

The American fast-food chain caused an uproar when they shared the shake would be returning – but then announced that Canadians would get it earlier than their US counterparts.

Regardless, the frosty treat can be enjoyed all across North America now, but only for a limited time.

The Shamrock Shake has been an annual delight at McDonald’s since it debuted in 1970, under the much-less-catchy name “St. Patrick’s Day Green Milkshake.”

It took a long time before the rare offering was sold at locations nationwide, and even now, not every franchise is required to sell it.

Luckily for you, McDonald’s has released a special Shamrock Shake finder app that makes it easy to track down the item in your area.

Is this the ever-elusive pot o’ gold at the end of the rainbow? It just might be!
