PHILADELPHIA - McDonald€™s announced earlier this week the introduction of the McCafÃ© Shake, now available in restaurants and a treat that the restaurant chain hopes "will change the way customers experience" its milkshake.
Available in the three McDonald€™s milkshake flavors (chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry), the shake is served in a clear McCafÃ© cup and topped with whipped cream and a cherry.
McDonald€™s also is reintroducing the Shamrock Shake, available in stores now through March 31 with a portion of the proceeds from each Shamrock Shake sale benefitting Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC).
Through March 17, McDonald€™s is holding a "social" fundraiser, during which customers can check-in on foursquare at any restaurant in Philadelphia and send their check-in to Twitter with a @McDPhillymention. For every check-in received, McDonald€™s will donate $1 to RMHC. And each customer who participates will receive a coupon for a free McCafÃ© Shake.
"We are excited to introduce customers to the new McCafÃ© Shake experience through our 'Social' fundraiser," said John Durante, president of McDonald's Restaurants of the Philadelphia Region Owner/Operator Association. "We are also encouraging our customers start checking-in on foursquare to support this terrific cause."
