It Looks As If McDonald's Halloween Pails Could Be Returning For Halloween 2022!

It Looks As If McDonald’s Halloween Pails Could Be Returning For Halloween 2022!

Well, folks, it may be unofficial for now. But, I have it on good authority that McDonald’s may have FINALLY heard our cries of justice for the triumphant return of the McDonald’s Halloween Pail for the 2022 spooky season!

For the past few weeks, an article I had written last year outlining the history of the beloved Halloween buckets has been circulating through the internet community and via the power of social media, McDonald’s employees have chimed in revealing that there are INDEED plans that the fast-food giant is resurrecting the nostalgic Halloween Happy Meal starting on October 18th, 2022 and ending on the holiday itself October 31, 2022.

This photo was sent by an employee of the company from the official office corporate calendar of events. Now, keep in mind McDonald’s hasn’t released this information to the public nor is this official in any way. However, more than a few employees from McDonald’s have confirmed this is indeed true so I’m happy to run with this for now in anticipation of a long overdue comeback of these national Halloween treasures!

I have been championing the return of McBoo and friends for as long as I have been horror blogging, so if this indeed does happen, I’ll sure as shit be one happy nostalgic nugget. Speaking of nuggets, if they also include Halloween McNugget toys, I might just lose my ever-loving shit and officially mandate Halloween 2022 to be the greatest yet.

While we do have an inkling here they ARE on the way, I have no idea what they will look like. That being said, we will have to wait for the official announcement. In the meantime let’s bask in this glorious news and just hope McBoo makes an appearance for the 2022 Halloween season!

  1. Oh whoa, I would love this! If it does in fact come to pass, I want 2 of them, one for my 5 year old and one to put away because I know that he’ll find a way to break his!
