​McDonald's creates re-engineered straws for Shamrock Season

McDonald's USA has changed the world (of shake-drinking) with a limited-edition straw designed by a team of aerospace and robotic engineers.

The Chocolate Shamrock Shake, one of four new seasonal McCafé beverages, has dual layers of delicious chocolate shake below Shamrock Shake.

JACE and NK Labs created the probably-more-revolutionary-than-actually-needed Suction Tube for Reverse Axial Withdrawal (the STRAW).

Seth Newburg, Principal Engineer and Managing Partner, NK Labs, said, "It was a puzzling assignment but one with an ambitious goal. From a physics perspective, it's actually quite difficult to deliver a proportional amount of both chocolate and mint flavors with each sip. But that's exactly what we did. It's a marvel of fluid dynamics. Thanks Fibonacci sequence."

Darci Forrest, Senior Director of menu innovation, McDonald's, said, "We're always listening to what our customers want and reinventing our menu in response. And though it might sound silly to some, putting our guests first sometimes means re-thinking even the humble straw. We reached out to some of the brightest engineers in the country and asked for their help to create the ultimate shake-drinking experience."

The Chocolate Shamrock Shake is one of four new mint and chocolate flavored McCafé beverages now available at McDonald's locations nationwide for a limited time.
