Because prolonging childhood is apparently so prevalent, McDonald's is now offering Happy Meals for adults
· Oct 1, 2022 ·

McDonald's USA and fashion brand Cactus Plant Flea Market are teaming up to launch the limited edition adult Happy Meals. They're just like the normal Happy Meals, except with larger portion sizes.

The adult version of the iconic kid's meal comes with two options: a Big Mac or 10 Piece chicken McNuggets. Just like the kid's meal both are served alongside fries, a drink, and, of course, a collectible plastic toy.

Tariq Hassan, Chief Marketing and Customer Experience Officer for Mcdonald's said in a press release,

"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."

I don't know who needs to hear this, but there was never an age limit on Happy Meals. You could have been buying these your entire adult life if that plastic figurine was so important to you.

Apparently, all the toys in this collection inexplicably come with an extra set of eyes, if the concept wasn't weird enough to begin with.

I don't think I've eaten 10 McNuggets in my entire life, but if that's what you're into, by all means, get yourself an adult-sized kids meal, (I'm looking at you @HarrisRigby) but please do me a favor and pass the toy on to an actual child. No adult needs to be collecting those things.

The limited edition jumbo-sized Happy Meals will be available starting Monday.
