Every time around this year I pay close attention to see when the Shamrock Shakes start to come out in the Quad Cities. The day that Iowa and Illinois McDonalds' usually drop the Shamrock Shake is between the 20th and 28th of February. It appears that most spots got it on the 20th, and that almost all spots have it now. You can double check your location here. 

I don't know what it is about the shake, but I absolutely love it. I think it's the novelty of it only coming out a select time of year. I'm not the only one who loves it either, customers have been enjoying this shake since the 70's!

It appears that almost all locations in and around the Quad Cities have the shakes, and a majority of McDonalds are even donating with every purchase you make. Which just adds to the enjoyment of this treat.
