“Oh great,” I said to myself. “Another Shamrock Shake article at yet another retro site. How original.”
But I was too quick to judge! You know what they say when you surmise– you make an s out of ur mise. Anyway, the point here is that after nearly 20 years of vague recollections and after a recenty exhaustive and ultimately empty-handed online search, I have found all the proof that I need upon viewing that article…
That’s right! I’m talkin’ ’bout the Shamrock Sundae! Granted, it’s not *exactly* what I’m looking for. You see, I can remember on at least one “winter holiday” (aka Christmas) occasion that McDonald’s offered mint sundaes (with green syrup) and peppermint sundaes (red syrup). I’ve hit up a few 80s message boards and no one remembers this, but I do and I even remember a commerical for it! This is a like a typical episode of The Twilight Zone where I’m sane and everyone else is acting weird.
So, now the world can see I am not completely crazy. I still say this was a short-lived holiday treat as well, probably ’86 or ’87, but at least we’re getting closer to blowing the lid off this whole mint/peppermint sundae cover-up.
