McDonald's Launching Happy Meal for Adults

NBCUniversal Media, LLC

Around since 1979, McDonald's Happy Meals for kids aren't anything new. But McDonald's Happy Meals for adults are.

Beginning Oct. 3, McDonald's will launch a new Happy Meal -- geared toward adults -- as part of a collaboration with streetwear fashion label Cactus Plant Flea Market, according to 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," said Tariq Hassan, McDonald's USA Chief Marketing and Customer Experience Officer.

The new-yet-nostalgic meal, dubbed the Cactus Plant Flea Box, will be available for a limited time and gives a more mature McDonald's fan the option of ordering either a Big Mac or a 10-piece Chicken McNugget, complete with fries and a drink.

And, of course, there's a treat.

Each meal will contain one of four collectible figurines "made just for the Cactus Plant Flea Market box," McDonald's says. While three of the toys may be more recognizable -- Grimace, the Hamburglar and Birdie -- a new one, named Cactus Buddy! will also make an appearance.

According to McDonald's, those who purchase a Cactus Plant Flea Box via the McDonald's app will be automatically entered into a weekly sweepstakes to win exclusive collaboration merchandise, including T-shirts, other apparel, and a piece of furniture called the "Grimace Chair."

Cactus Plant Flea Market boxes will be available for a limited time only, while supplies last, the release says.
