(Gray News) – McDonald’s Shamrock Shake is back for its 50th anniversary, the fast food giant announced Wednesday.

The frosty treat will return to restaurants on Feb. 19.

“We’ve been serving the iconic, cult-favorite Shamrock Shake for 50 years and it’s become synonymous with McDonald’s ever since,” McDonald’s Vice President Linda VanGosen said.

On the same date, Mickey D’s is also rolling out a new Oreo Shamrock McFlurry, which features the Shamrock Shake soft serve blended with the popular cookie.

The Shamrock Shake was created by Hal Rosen, a Connecticut McDonald’s owner and operator who made the mint shake for St. Patrick’s Day. It soon caught on around the country.
