McDonald’s is bringing back the Hamburglar, an old millennial favorite that’s been missing for years — and it will be exclusively for adults.
The Happy Meal
The Hamburglar celebrates his triumphant return to McDonald’s as part of a character cast in a new Happy Meal for adults.
The Adult Happy Meal will continue the practice of including toys.
McDonald’s is launching the Adult Happy Meal on October 3, and you can order the Cactus Plant Flea Market Box.
The Cactus Plant Flea Market Box and Toy
The box contains a Big Mac or 10 pieces of chicken nuggets, complete with fries and a drink.
The Cactus Plant Flea Market Box is a collaboration between McDonald’s and the streetwear brand.
It’s a collaborative effort to dive deep into 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.
Mealtime toys include a remastered version of the fast food chain’s famous mascots.
Birdie, Grimace, and Hamburglar are joined by a new mascot named 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 extremely relevant to 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 restaurants often ran out of meals.
For this collaboration, McDonald’s found a reliable partner with the Cactus Plant Flea Market.
Cactus Plant Flea Market is a streetwear brand that has been populated by the artists Kanye West and Pharrell in recent years.
The media complex described the aesthetic of the brand as a “fluid and eccentric combination” mixed with “playful graphic images.”
The elusive origin of the brand was an important attraction for fans of the brand.
The Cactus Plant Plant hooded sweatshirt can sell for up to $1,000 on the Stockx online market.
