McDonald’s to offer Happy Meals

McDonalds may be triggering memories for adults with its new 

Happy Meal experience. “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. The meal will be packaged in a box specially designed

with reminiscent Happy Meals from the old days. Toys inside the 

Happy Meal for adults will include redesigned takes on McDonald’s 

famous mascots, including Grimace, the Hamburglar and Birdie, 

plus a new character named Cactus Buddy. This meal is a 

collaboration between the streetwear/grunge brand Cactus Plant Flea

 Market, which was popularized by Kanye West and Pharrell in recent 

years, and the fast food powerhouse. McDonald’s has partnered with 

pop culture icons like BTS, J Balvin and Travis Scott to create hype 

around its meals in the past. The adult Happy Meal, a.k.a. the Cactus

Plant Flea Market Box -- consisting of a Big Mac or 10-piece Chicken 

McNuggets, French fries, a drink, and even a toy -- will launch on Oct. 3.
