UPDATE: The shake is in Lubbock right now!

[Original story] Most of us know and love the Shamrock Shake at McDonald's and gleefully await its return around St. Patrick's Day. However, this year, McDonald's majorly stepped up its game and is rolling out the shake early - and in FIVE different varieties!

The Shamrock line has already been released in select locations, but should be more widely available by Feb. 7th.

Your options will include the original Shamrock Shake, Chocolate Shamrock Shake, Shamrock Chocolate Chip Frappé, Shamrock Hot Chocolate and the Shamrock Mocha, which to my delight will have a shot of espresso in it.

Can hardly wait? You can monitor the fan site shamrockshake.com (yes, it is a fan site for a milkshake) to see what locations the coveted confection has been spotted at already.
