After much online speculation, the news is out: McDonald’s Halloween buckets are making a comeback this year! The happy meal pails were a longtime fan-favorite for years—as millennial parents know.
After six long years, McDonald’s is putting everyone’s favorite happy meal container back on the menu. The pails will be available at participating restaurants nationwide through Halloween, while supplies last, the company confirmed Thursday. All Happy Meals will be served in these adorable Halloween buckets instead of traditional boxes for the two weeks—and yes, the pails also double as happy meal toys.
McDonald’s has kinda been knocking it out of the park recently, as the fast-food chain announced they’re also starting up Adult Happy Meals. And yes, it comes with a toy.
McDonald’s is teaming up with fashion brand Cactus Plant for a limited time to create a larger box than the standard Happy Meal that holds a choice of either a 10-piece chicken nugget or a Big Mac and an order of medium fries, with a medium drink.
Best of all, though, is that the “adult” box comes with a toy, one of four collectible figurines of old-school McDonald’s mascots—Grimace, the Hamburglar, Birdie and a new character named Cactus Buddy.
McDonald’s Halloween pails have been around since 1984, interestingly enough. Which makes sense, because a majority of us probably can’t recall a time where we weren’t served our cheeseburgers and fries inside a ghost bucket.
Now go forth, make dinner easier on yourself, and have your kids snag their own McBoo, McPunk’n and McGoblin today!
