The famed, limited-time Shamrock Shake at McDonald’s has made its way back, but this time, there are some new variations of the classic treat, according to Brand Eating.

The McDonald’s Shamrock Shake has been a St. Patrick’s Day-season promotional item for decades, but the 2017 rollout includes never-before-seen combinations.

Chocolate Shamrock Shake

This drink will have two layers: A layer of Shamrock Shake on top and a layer of chocolate shake on the bottom. It’s just a new combination of two classic desserts.

Shamrock Chocolate Chip Frappe

Mixing the caramel and mocha Frappe flavors, McDonald’s also blends in chocolate chips and Shamrock Shake for  a new “spin” on multiple menu items.

Shamrock Hot Chocolate

The original Shamrock Shake is mostly just a vanilla milkshake with Shamrock Shake syrup, but the Shamrock Hot Chocolate instead takes that syrup and puts it into a steamy beverage.

Shamrock Mocha

Like the Shamrock Hot Chocolate, the Shamrock Mocha puts Shamrock syrup into a warm drink. This time, it’s milk, espresso and chocolate syrup mixed with Shamrock syrup.
