As much as I adore fast food, I have some serious gaps in my experience. For example, I’ve never eaten Taco Bell (that will change next month — an outing is scheduled). Similarly, up until last night, I’d never tried one of McDonald’s famed Shamrock Shakes, but with St. Patty’s day right around the corner and all the scuttlebutt about the green libations on Facebook and Twitter, I could no longer stand on the sidelines of fast food culture. It was time to cross this drink off my quaffing bucket list.
After the jump, check out photos, courtesy of Phamtastic, of my very first Shamrock Shake.
Here I am at McDonalds. Not even the presence of several tranny hookers (and there were SEVERAL just off camera) could deter me from my mission.
Ordering to commence shortly.
The shake is in hand, and a straw has been procured. Tasting to begin shortly
I must say I’m a bit put off by the neon green color, but I suppose one can’t expect natural hues (or food) at McDonalds.
My first sip. For a moment, I forget about the tranny in fishnet stockings and feel like I’ve been transported to the heart of Ireland.
I like it!
The verdict: what a lovely, minty, sugary treat! Yes, the Shamrock Shake was a Celtic delight, but I can’t say that I understand the hype. As lovely as it was, I have a hard time thinking I’ll be yearning for it again next year. It’s certainly no CADBURY CREME EGG.
Maybe next time I have one I’ll spike it with something. That’ll certainly change my opinion…
