This has possibly been the most enjoyable experience that Classy By Cass has brought my way to date.
I was invited to a VIP Launch Event at Mcdonald's to try out some new beverages that are available now! So I will take you on my delicious little journey that will no doubt have you running down to go and get yourselves one of these yummy beverages! I do have a favorite- in which I will share with you at the very end. Before I do, though, I feel like this is important to mention this first for those who don't know the reason for the Shamrock Shake started...
In 1974, the Shamrock Shake was created as a way to raise funds to open the first Ronald McDonald House (RMHC) in Philadelphia. Now, all these years later, the proceedes from the Shamrock Shake still support RMHC, which serves 7 million children and families worldwide each year.
Here in Arizona, there are 4 RMHC houses that enable families to remain together and close to their sick children.
So all the Shamrock Shakes you buy, you're enabling families to stay together. So sweet!
Now, I will show you what's new in the Shamrock promotion!
The STRAW, though, is the phenomenon that made this whole experience possible. It was created by areospace engeneers (for reals) and I almost couldn't believe it when I tried it and it actually works! I got both flavors in one swig!
It nearly knocked me off the bar stool I was sitting on! Watch the video below to see how it was perfectly crafted to bring to us the full flavors of the new McCafe Chocolate Shamrock Shake!
Seeing as though the whole state of Arizona only got 20!
No words can do this little puppy justice until you try it for yourself. It will literally leave you speechless. I just wanted to go hide in a corner and take about 5 of them with me. Not to be bothered until every last ounce of them were gone.
All of these blessed flavors marry up and create such a wonderfully sinful treat that you almost feel guilty indulging in it's sweetness. Almost, but not enough to stop you.
You must treat yourself to this. It is a must!
It is a classic hot mocha with a minty twist made with mint and mocha syrup with whipped topping and chocolaty drizzle.
Much like the McCafe Shamrock Chocolate Chip Frappe in taste, this heartwarming hot beverage will srtart your day off on the sweetest, mintiest note! Or serve as a minty pick-me-up in the afternoon or as a sweet treat after dinner. It is so smooth and creamy. This is one to warm you right down to your toes.

Lastly, I just wanted to give a shout out to McDonald's and the PR team that made this possible for Classy By Cass.
