AWSI Musings: McDs Shakes Things Up with Shamrock Shake-Friendly STRAW…

We introduced the “SNapkin” concept in this post. Here’s another to peruse and ponder.  Enjoy!—The Gang


This Shamrock Shake season McDonald’s has come up with a new combination — dubbed “The Chocolate Shamrock Shake.” They seem to be following the playbook of Doritos / Taco Bell and Cheetos of concocting limited edition combination of flavors. Anyway, to draw attention to this drink that consists of 50% chocolate and 50% mint, they have developed a limited edition straw.

So before your brain goes off into curly crazy straw land, pay attention here. McDonald’s got a team of aerospace and robotic engineers to invent (jargon alert):

Suction Tube for Reverse Axial Withdrawal (AKA the STRAW)

Now if we were closer to April, we’d swear this was an April Fool’s joke. But it isn’t.

Here’s the link to the press release they issued.

And some videos.

Also, we think you’ll want to keep your eyes on eBay because only 2000 of these bad boys are being created. The venues where you can find them are few and far between too.


And The Enchanted Jukebox Sez…

Well, shake it up now, all you’ve got, woo…

Thanks for reading!
