Who says you can’t be happy as a grownup? Certainly not McDonald’s, which is giving adults the chance to feel like a kid again.
“We’re taking one of the most nostalgic McDonald’s experiences and literally repackaging it in a new way that’s hyper-relevant for our adult fans,” said Tariq Hassan, McDonald’s USA chief marketing and customer experience officer in a release.
And oh yes, there will indeed be toys in these adult Happy Meals. Toys that will bring back memories of McDonald’s yesteryear — with redesigned takes on famous mascots such as Grimace, Hamburglar and Birdie.
McDonald’s Is Selling Happy Meals for Adults
Along with that, McDonald’s is introducing a new mascot, Cactus Buddy, who will also come with select Happy Meals for grownups. Food options will include either a Big Mac or 10-piece McNuggets, with fries and a drink.
The fun begins Oct. 3, when “customers can order a Cactus Plant Flea Market Box — a Big Mac or 10-piece chicken McNuggets, with fries and a drink,” CNN wrote. “The meal is a collaboration between the (Cactus Plant Flea Market) streetwear brand and the fast food chain as it digs deeper into nostalgia.”
But hurry and make your way there. Just like most everything in adulthood, this fun won’t last forever. Apparently, grownup Happy Meals are available for just a short while.
