McDonald’s Is Introducing Adult Happy Meals

By | September 29, 2022

McDonald’s is making Happy Meals cool for all ages this October with a new menu item, and yes, the boxed meals come with toys.

The restaurant chain announced a partnership (via NPR) with Cactus Plant Flea Market for a new meal deal for the month of October. Cactus Plant Flea Market is a fashion label that focuses on creating original streetwear.

From October 3 to October 30, you can order the Cactus Plant Flea Market Meal Box, that comes with a meal and one of four toys: the Hamburglar, Birdie, Grimace, and Cactus Buddy.

You may recognize the first three names from Mickey D’s classic stable of characters, while Cactus Buddy is the mascot for Cactus Plant Flea Market. The McDonald’s characters look a little strange, though, with four eyes a piece. The meal comes packaged in a box designed with CPFM’s style in mind.

Some CPFM x McDonald’s merch will also be available as part of this new promotion beginning on October 3.

Some of McDonald’s’ other marketing ploys over the years have included the Rick and Morty sauce, and a fakeout of a 5G cell phone announcement.
