Well McDonalds is really getting on the nostalgia bandwagon.  I for one, could not be happier.  Trick or treating is one of the great activities for Halloween that kids love, and I am willing to bet that at least one of you had that McDonalds Halloween pail filled with candy.  Now if you have kids, they can get them too.  Starting TODAY!

McDonald’s confirmed the return of its Halloween Happy Meal pumpkin pails, which often doubled as trick-or-treating buckets for kids in the mid- to late-‘80s.  Here is what their press release said:

We heard you loud and clear… if spooky SZN doesn’t include McDonald’s Halloween Pails, then you don't want it. That's why we’re bringing back the most iconic Halloween trio – McBoo, McPunk’n and McGoblin – that first came on the scene back in 1986. The nostalgic Happy Meal is returning to participating McDonald’s restaurants nationwide from Oct. 18 – 31, while supplies last. 

They may have vanished for a while... but that didn’t stop you from finding clever ways to keep their spooky spirit alive – from potting plants in them to using them as OOTD accessories. So, in honor of the return of one of your fave Happy Meals, we’re serving up five fan-inspired ways to reuse your Halloween Pail after you’ve enjoyed the delicious eats inside. Check out the ideas!

The new pails will be available at participating McDonald’s restaurants between Oct. 18 – 31 with the purchase of a Happy Meal, but only “while supplies last,”.  Lets hope our Sedalia locations on Broadway and Limit Ave will be carrying them.  If any of you pick them up, let us know.  Some of us would love to have one.  You can get more info HERE.  Thank you McDonalds for this.  My childhood was just a little bit better with these around Halloween.
