Shamrock Season

@shamrockdfw was contacted by a local News Radio station (1080 KRLD).

I think it was just a “hey, were interested – “the Movement” might be an interesting story- get in touch with us”  type of deal. So contact info has been given and pass along to whomever might potentially be interested in a story.  I’ll keep everyone posted if anything comes of it.

As always – Follow @shamrockdfw on twitter – Make sure to use #shamrockshake in your tweets, whether you are enjoying them or wishing you could have one.

As a side note–KRLD is the station I listen to everyday for news and traffic.  It’s my DFW version of 710 KIRO, which is pretty rad.

Shamrock Shake Revolution!

Still trying to get the Shamrock Shake to Dallas-Fort Worth!
Please support the effort and spread the word.

Participate on facebook (the page has up to 63 fans! And some of them I don’t even know.  AND some of them… I don’t even have mutual friends with!!!) and/or Twitter

Most of all, please contact McDonalds. It will only take a minute or two.

Several times this season already, I have been so sad that I can’t have a shamrock shake. I even considered driving to Oklahoma to get one – but it turns out, they don’t have them either.

If you need your shamrock shake fix – and don’t know where to find them, check out this great site: www.shamrockshake.com

And to really make a difference, please contact McDonalds.

Even if you live in a place that already has the shake, please help us out so that we too can enjoy the minty goodness.

Shamrock Shake Revolution! (grassroots movement)

It’s almost March! That means, if you are interested in having a Shamrock Shake – now might be the time to start suggesting to McDonalds that DFW NEEDS Shamrock Shakes this year.
Here are some websites if you want to take to the virtual street and campaign for McDonalds to bring the green goodness here this year!

Also – if you are going to participate on Twitter – #shamrockshake is the official hashtag.

**Archive from March 18th, 2009:

I really wanted a Shamrock Shake yesterday.

Thanks to the reminder from a coworker, we talked about how we wanted a Shamrock Shake. One person drove down to McDonalds to try and get one, but they did not have them.

This made me sad, so I contacted McDonalds. Here are the results of the Search for a Shamrock Shake:

I wrote McD’s and said:

“I just moved to Texas. Is it true that they do not have shamrock shakes here!?!?! Our main local McDonald’s doesn’t. Is that true for the entire state?

That makes me very sad.”

Their Response:

“Hello Debra:
Thank you for taking the time to contact McDonald’s. We appreciate your interest in our Shamrock Shake.

The Shamrock Shake is a “promotional” product offered for a limited time only. Since the decision to offer promotional products is made on a region by region basis, I have forwarded your comments to the McDonald’s regional office in your area for their consideration in deciding if they will offer the Shamrock Shakes to their customers next year.

Once again, thank you for taking the time to contact McDonald’s and sharing your comments with us. Hopefully, the Shamrock Shake will be offered at your local McDonald’s next year.

(The moral of the story is…have everyone you know email in for shamrock shakes and maybe they will show up next year)

Search for the Shamrock Shake

Thanks to the reminder from someone at work, many of us at Pursuant talked about how we wanted a Shamrock Shake. One person drove down to McDonalds to try and get one, but they did not have them.
