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

Holy hullabaloo! šŸ™‚ 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. šŸ˜‰

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.

Question: What’s your favorite milkshake flavor?

    I also think it’s cool idea of the whole no fat talk, but honestly im a little shocked that you mention you’re a girl with meat on your bones and look at your thighs and sigh. I always think you look very slim in ur pics!

      Thank you! I’m working on embracing my whole body and being thankful for parts of myself I am most critical of on a daily basis. I think Fat Talk Free Week is a great way for women like me to step back and be thankful for what we do have and focus on living a healthy life and fueling a healthy body – not a skinny one. šŸ™‚

    This was a disgusting disappointment to me. It basically taste like the eggnog shake with some sort of pumpkin spice syrup in it. Stick with the oreo mcflurry.
