It’s March. Again. But don’t despair, there’s still reason to celebrate! ‘Tis the season for the return of McDonald’s Shamrock Shakes. And this year it has some competition for the most appropriate seasonal dessert. Another chain is offering fans a special sweet treat to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day by bringing the cereal aisle to the frozen section. Cold Stone Creamery‘s newest flavor is magically delicious. For a limited time you can dig into Lucky Charms ice cream.
Cold Stone Creamery
Starting March 1, Cold Stones nationwide are selling a limited-edition Lucky Charms Ice Cream. (Which we first heard about at Candy Hunting.) This version is different from the commercially available Lucky Charms ice cream that hit stores last year. Customers will be able to get the new menu item as a standalone flavor. It will also be available both as a Creation—ice cream with sprinkles and marshmallows—and as an official Cold Stone Shake.
Their “Ice Cream at the End of the Rainbow” Creation features the green-tinted Lucky Charms-flavored ice cream, packed with double the iconic cereal’s marshmallows. Then it’s covered with a whipped topping and completed with a special sprinkling of gold glitter. As an extra bonus, you can also get a green waffle cone or bowl for your Creation. If you prefer to drink your frozen sweets, though, you can get the same mix as a “Sprinkled With Charms” Shake.

“Cold Stone Creamery is delighted to partner with General Mills this month to bring the magic beyond the cereal bowl and introduce this limited time flavor,” said Sara Schmillen, vice president of marketing at Kahala Brands, parent company of Cold Stone Creamery, in a press release. “Guests of all ages will enjoy the nostalgia of this combination, and it’s sure to bring some luck your way!”
The only downside is that Lucky Charms ice cream will vanish like a rainbow at the end of the month. Which might be the first time in a long time any of us will be sad to see March end.
