October is right around the corner and that means Halloween season is about to be in full swing. Nothing is official yet, but rumors are swirling that McDonald's is primed to bring back another dearly missed retro item tied to the spooky season—the Halloween Happy Meal pails.
These fun pails absolutely exude autumn nostalgia and can be used for trick or treating long after the Happy Meal is gone. First launched in 1986, the Halloween Happy Meal pails originally came in three orange versions (McPunk'n, McBoo, and McGoblin). But by 1990,the pails had been revamped to three simpler options: A white ghost, a green witch, or an orange pumpkin.
Various versions of the pails have come and gone since then, but none connected with consumers quite like the classics seen in the late 1980s and early 1990s. No Halloween pails have been offered by McDonald's since 2016.
Fast forward to 2022, and the website Nightmare Nostalgia recently posted what they claim to be an official McDonald's corporate calendar of events for October 2022. According to the leaked image, the Halloween Happy Meal pails will be rising from the grave to haunt customers nationwide starting October 18 right up until the end of the day on Halloween on October 31.
