McDonald's legendary Halloween Pails will return to U.S. stores this fall, despite weeks of rumors.
The chain's Halloween Happy Meals will be available from October 18 through October 31, or while supplies last. If you want one, don't wait till the afterlife.
McDonald's Halloween Pails were popular among '80s and '90s kids and teens. They disappeared from Halloween ephemera 20 years later.
Since the Pails' introduction, many variants have come and gone, but none have resonated with customers like the original. Why is this announcement so exciting? McBoo, McPunk'n, and McGoblin, McDonald's original Halloween Pail trio, are back.
In the late 1980s, all three were orange, but by the early 1990s, McBoo was white, McGoblin was green, and McPunk'n remained orange.
Halloween Pails were designed for trick-or-treating. McDonald's and its followers have used the pail creatively for Halloween.
If you're not trick-or-treating this year, a Halloween Pail from McDonald's might be a fun addition.
