Where Can I Purchase an Adult Happy Meal at McDonald's?

In 1979, the nationwide distribution of the Happy Meal started. The original McDonald’s Happy Meal was a promotion for Star Trek: The Motion Picture. In retrospect, this is amusing because the original Star Trek movie arguably the least family-friendly in the series.

Since then, Happy Meals have included other characters, including those from Batman and Disney. On September 27, McDonald’s revealed it would be producing an adult-oriented Happy Meal. By providing the Cactus Plant Flea Market Box, the chain is completely rethinking the experience.

Known for being a favorite of hip-hop greats like Kanye West, Tyler the Creator, and Pharrell, Cactus Plant Flea Market created an exclusive cooperation box with McDonald’s that featured both well-known and original character faces

The adult’s happy meal will only be available at McDonald’s for a short period of time beginning on October 3. The boxes will be offered in-restaurant, at the drive-through, for delivery, and even on the official McDonald’s app.

Customers who purchase the Cactus Plant Flea Market Box on the McDonald’s App are immediately entered to win free, exclusive merchandise every week. T-shirts, a Grimace Chair, and other goods are included in this. If you don’t want to wait, the merchandise will also be available here on October 3 at 11 a.m. ET.

What To Expect In The Box?

You have the following two choices available to you:

  1. A Big Mac with 100% pure beef patties topped with Big Mac sauce OR
  2. Chicken McNuggets with fries and your choice of drink are both available

A meal and a well-known McDonald’s character will be included in the box. They will include Cactus Buddy, the Hamburglar, Birdie, and Grimace. It seems strange that Ronald McDonald himself wasn’t included in the list.

However, it’s great to see the fast-food juggernaut once more pay tribute to the original McDonaldland characters. Younger generations may not have much use for figures like Grimace the purple blob. However, many people who grew up with them had them imprinted in their hearts and brains.

What We Know About the Collaboration?

The collaboration will enable adults to take a trip down memory lane and perhaps relive their childhood, according to Tariq Hassan, Chief Marketing and Customer Experience Officer of McDonald’s USA.
