One of the most amazing things about St. Patrick’s Day is McDonald’s Shamrock Shake. But as we all know the nutrition facts are nothing near amazing. The Shamrock Shake weighs in at 540 calories and 16 grams of fat for a small, or 840 calories and 24 grams of fat for a large, according to nutritional information on the McDonald’s website.
