McDonald's vintage Boo Buckets create a touch of nostalgia

McDonald’s throwback this Halloween is to the 80s. 

In 1986, McDonald’s began serving its Happy Meal Kids meals in Halloween-themed pails, aka Boo Buckets. Nearly 40 years later, McDonald’s is bringing them back and social media has been buzzing for weeks ahead of the nostalgic release.

The limited edition promotion comes in the same color range as before – white ghost, orange pumpkin, and green witch. People will fondly remember them as McPunk’n, McBoo, and McGoblin. The spooky designs have a distinct face for each character as well as a range of lids.
