McDonald’s is releasing Happy Meals for adults

McDonald’s partners with Cactus Plant Flea Market for a limited-edition Happy Meal

Cactus Plant Flea Market Box, a.k.a. McDonald's Happy Meal for adults

McDonald’s is banking on nostalgia for its new Happy Meals made exclusively for adult fans.

The fast-food chain announced on Tuesday that it has teamed up with the streetwear brand Cactus Plant Flea Market to create the Cactus Plant Flea Market Box, a limited-edition McDonald’s meal that aims to take adult fans on a trip down memory lane to the time they had their very first Happy Meal as a kid.

What does McDonald’s Happy Meal for adults look like?

The Cactus Flea Market Box has a size and shape similar to the Happy Meals from the old days. Featuring a design that reflects the clothing brand’s signature style, the box comes complete with McDonald’s iconic Golden Arches that serve as the handle.

For the actual meal inside the box, customers can choose between a Big Mac or a 10-piece Chicken McNuggets. The reimagined Happy Meal also includes fries and a drink for a complete fast-food treat.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Happy Meal without a toy inside. Each order of the Cactus Plant Flea Market Box comes with one of four collectible figurines of Grimace, the Hamburglar, Birdie, and Cactus Buddy ― a character designed by Cactus Plant Flea Market.

Cactus Plant Flea Market Box release date

The Happy Meals for adults will be available in-restaurant, in the drive-thru, by delivery or on the McDonald’s App starting October 3, while supplies last.

“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 statement. “I can’t wait to give fans a unique piece of art and culture as we dive headfirst into the dynamic world of Cactus Plant Flea Market together next week. With menu favorites like the Big Mac and McNuggets at the center of this collab, this is another way we’re reigniting a new generation’s love for our food and the brand.”
