McDonald’s Just Launched an Adult Happy Meal—Here’s What’s in It

Happy Meals used to be just for kids, but McDonald's new adult Happy Meal has changed the rules

Our memories of meals out as kids aren’t about fancy tablecloths and exceptional service. They’re about the things that really mattered. Fries, nuggets, Big Macs and, of course, Happy Meals. Even though Happy Meals have gone through some changes over the years, they remain the source of much nostalgia.

While some McDonald’s innovations like the Chicken Big Mac are surely meant for adults, Happy Meals are very much for kids. Until now, that is!

What’s in the adult Happy Meal?

Happy Meals are no longer just about childhood nostalgia, as McDonald’s now has an adult Happy Meal! The new offering comes courtesy of a collaboration with Cactus Plant Flea Market, one of the current hottest names in fashion.

The Cactus Plant Flea Market box comes with a Big Mac or 10-piece Chicken McNuggets, along with fries and a drink. The box looks just like a regular Happy Meal box, complete with colorful, eye-catching art, though we assume it’s a bit larger than the regular box.

And, yes, there’s even a toy involved. The toys will be pretty recognizable and nostalgic themselves, including Grimace, Hamburglar and Birdie. But there’ll also be a new one, Cactus Buddy, in honor of the Cactus Plant Flea Market brand. We can’t wait to collect them all! Plus, the McDonald’s happy meal toy prices may surprise you.

When can I get the Happy Meal?

There are lots of secrets about McDonald’s that employees can’t tell you, however this isn’t one of them. The new adult Happy Meal is available now, but act fast—it’s only around for a limited time.

Next, learn why you should only order large fries at McDonald’s.
