As if the anticipation of Shamrock Shake season wasn't already bad enough, McDonald's recently announced it's going to have several versions of the sugar-packed, green minty drinks.

Brand Eating says the new shakes throw chocolate in to the mix.

Here's how:

Chocolate Shamrock Shake: This is a layered shake – half of it is chocolate, the other half is Shamrock Shake. It's finished off with whipped topping, green sugar crystals, and a drizzle of chocolate syrup.

Shamrock Chocolate Chip Frappe: This one's the Chocolate Chip Frappe blended with the minty Shamrock Shake syrup and topped the same way as the Chocolate Shamrock Shake.

Shamrock Hot Chocolate: For the days too cold for a shake, you can order a hot chocolate mixed with Shamrock Shake syrup.

Shamrock Mocha: And if you need a little pick-me-up, there's this mocha mixed with Shamrock Shake syrup.

Of course the classic Shamrock Shake will still be an option. This year, it'll also be topped with green sugar crystals along with a cherry.

According to Fortune, the drinks are already available at some McDonald's locations. However, not all restaurants will participate.
