(WXYZ) — McDonald's announced Wednesday that the classic Shamrock Shake will return to locations on Feb. 19 and celebrating the 50th anniversary of the dessert.

To celebrate, they are also releasing a brand-new Oreo Shamrock McFlurry for a limited time.

The shake includes vanilla soft serve blended with McDonald's shamrock flavor and topped with whipped topping.

For the McFlurry, it's the vanilla soft serve with shamrock flavor blended with Oreo cookie pieces throughout.

“We’ve been serving the iconic, cult-favorite Shamrock Shake for 50 years and it’s become synonymous with McDonald’s ever since,” said McDonald’s Vice President of Menu Innovation, Linda VanGosen. “We’re excited to serve up a new way to experience the one-of-a-kind Shamrock flavor in our new OREO Shamrock McFlurry. Our chefs worked to get the perfect balance of OREO cookies and mint for this new delicious dessert. We can’t wait for customers to get a taste this spring.”

The desserts will be available nationwide for the first time since 2017.

It was created by Hal Rosen, a Connecticut-based McDonald's owner and debuted in 1970.
