Mcdonald’s Halloween Buckets

McDonald’s Battle Creek, MI on Facebook has the inside info about McDonald’s bringing back its beloved Halloween Boo Buckets.

“Starting Oct. 17, fans can get in the Halloween spirit at participating McDonald’s restaurants with four new Halloween Happy Meal® designs.

They’ll be gone faster than you can say “boo,” so head to your local McDonald’s to get a festive pail while supplies last.”

Back in 1986, McDonald’s created Halloween bucket happy meals, which can could also be used as a trick-or-treat pail. Brilliant idea! The three original designs were named McBoo, McPunk’n, and McGoblin. They all looked similar with jack-o-lantern faces. A few years later, a different designs were added to the mix. According to, the buckets haven’t been available since 2016, so a come back would be such a fun thing to have this year!

We love that McDonald’s is offering these fun Halloween buckets again!
