The time of the Shamrock Shake is almost upon us, and I thought I would share this piece of Shamrock Shake memorabilia from my childhood.
In the 1980s, McDonald’s gave “Grimace” a green uncle from Ireland named “Uncle O’Grimacey.” He brought the magical green-minty ooze to McDonaldland known as the Shamrock Shake. I figure I got this ring with a Shamrock Shake as a kiddo, but I’m not sure. It features Uncle O’Grimacey himself. It still fits! Anyway, I was nuts about the things back then, but I can’t stand them now, plus they have about a million calories. The ring is pretty cool, though. Also, I heard that this year the Shamrock Shake is going nationwide for the first time in history, instead of being in just certain regional locations.
