Boo! Every family already knows how popular Happy Meals are with kids (and some adults, too!) However, the happiness is heightened even more with the return of a Halloween favorite. Making their first appearance in 1986, the OG McBoo, McPunk’n and McGoblin characters are making a much-anticipated return to McDonald’s this spooky season.
The nostalgic Halloween Happy Meal will be available at participating McDonald’s locations nationwide — beginning October 18.
To get your hands on one, simply order a Happy Meal. (The pail replaces the toy, in case you’re wondering.) The popular pails are available through Halloween, October 31, while supplies last.
There are three different face designs on each pail. The buckets are distributed randomly. (If you ask for a specific bucket, please be patient with employees as they may not be able to accommodate your request.)
While it’s been six years since their last arrival to menus (in Oct. 2016), that didn’t stop fans from coming up with a bunch of fun ways to keep their spooky spirit alive long past October.
To celebrate their return, McDonald’s is sharing five favorite, fan-inspired ways to revamp the popular Halloween Pails into something new – from festive home décor to showstopping OOTDs.
