I’m sure you remember how much fun it was to get a Happy Meal when you were a kid. Well, McDonald’s is recognizing that we adults still need a little fun in our lives, so this October they’re treating us with our own adult happy meals! You’ll be able to choose between a Big Mac or 10-pice Chicken McNuggets to go along with fries and a drink. As if this concept isn’t cool enough, you’ll also get a toy in the box!
The boxes will feature one of four figurines. Three of the four appear to be artsy takes on the classic McDonald’s characters Grimace, Hamburglar, and Birdie the Early Bird, while the fourth is a little yellow guy sporting a McDonald’s shirt called Cactus Buddy. This is part of a tie-in with promotional partner Cactus Plant Flea Market, which is a fashion brand.
Between this, and the returning Halloween Pail Happy Meals, I’ll be making more than a few trips to McDonald’s next month.
If this news gets you nostalgic for McDonald’s back in the day, check out some of these previous features here on Retro Ramblings:
