Yes, It’s True: McDonald’s Has a Pumpkin Milkshake

Holy hullabaloo! 🙂 Apparently the pumpkin milkshake at McDonald’s is unknown to many because after posting about it several times, I have received comments ranging from “WHAT!? McDonald’s has a pumpkin milkshake???” to “I’ve gotta try that shake. I didn’t even know it existed.”

Let me assure you, my friends, that this milkshake is alive and well and currently available at McDonald’s.

After enjoying a yummy lunch with our friend (& Ryan’s cousin) Daniel yesterday, Ryan and I casually mentioned we were going to stop by McD’s for a pumpkin milkshake on our way home to which he said something along the lines of “Whoa, McDonald’s has a pumpkin milkshake?” Yes, we assured him, they do.

Today, Daniel posted this comment on my Facebook wall: “I tried the pumpkin milkshake… I wanted to eat the cup when it was finished.”

Just in case you were wondering, I am not a McDonald’s marketer, though I think they could probably use a couple since no one seems to know about this delicious delight. 😉

I checked the McDonald’s Web site and found that they have quite a few seasonal milkshakes including an egg nog shake. Why have I never heard of this one before??? I am more than familiar with the deliciously minty shamrock shake in March, but egg nog? Looks like I have a hot date with the golden arches in December.

Also, does anyone else out there remember when McDonald’s used to offer a soft-serve swirl cone in addition to the vanilla cone they currently offer? Whatever happened to the swirl? That was the best.
