McDonald’s and “Shamrock Shakes”


I have a shocker for you. 

McDonald’s “Shamrock Shakes” are not shamrock-flavored at all, but are mint-flavored! 

That’s like calling them “Mint Shakes”, but flavoring them with shamrock squeezings instead, or calling them Strawberry Shakes and flavoring them with beets because “Beets are red, too”. 

What’s wrong with saying mint is mint?  Yeah, yeah… St. Patrick’s Day and all that, but that doesn’t make it OK to lie about the flavor of the shakes.
