The Hamburglar returns for McDonald’s adult-catered Happy Meals
McDonald’s brings back the Hamburglar, an old favorite of older customers that has been missing for years – and it will only be for adults.
The Happy Meal
The Hamburglar celebrates its triumphant return to McDonald’s as part of a figure that was occupied in a new happy meal for adults.
The Happy Meal for adults will continue to involve toys.
McDonald’s begins the Happy Meal for adults on October 3, and customers can order the Cactus Plant Flea Market.
The Cactus Plant Flea Market box and the toy
The box contains a Big Mac or 10 pieces of chicken with fries and a drink. The Cactus Plant Flea Market Box is a collaboration between McDonald’s and the streetwear brand.
It is a concerted effort to immerse older customers in nostalgia.
The nostalgic special is served in a specially designed box that reminds shoppers of the good old days and the Happy Meals they grew up with.
The Happy Meal toys feature a remastered version of the fast food chain’s famous mascots.
Birdie, Grimace, and Hamburglar are joined by a new mascot called Cactus Buddy.
Tariq Hassan, director of marketing and customer office for McDonald’s in the United States, released a statement following the announcement.
“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,” he said.
Cactus Plant Flea Market
McDonald’s (MCD) has often had success working with celebrities, often crediting them with helping their sales go above and beyond.
In the past, the fast food chain has worked with names like J Balvin, BTS, and Travis Scott.
The collaboration with Travis Scott proved so popular that McDonald’s branches often ran out of meals.
For this collaboration, McDonald’s has found a reliable partner with Cactus Plant Flea Market.
Cactus Plant Flea Market is a streetwear brand populated in recent years by artists like Kanye West and Pharrell.
The media ensemble described the brand’s aesthetic as a “fluid and quirky combination” mixed with “playful graphics.”
The elusive origins of the brand have been a huge draw for fans of the brand.
The Cactus Plant Flea Market Hoodie is on sale for up to $ 1,000 on StockX’s online marketplace.
