THE HALLOWEEN PAILS DEBUTED 36 YEARS AGO
So fun for kids and so nostalgic for parents! Customers can buy a Happy Meal pail through Oct. 31 or while supplies last.
Happy Meals will be served in pails instead of traditional boxes for the two weeks. The pails also double as meal toys.
The Halloween pails, which double as trick-or-treat buckets, debuted 36 years ago in 1986 with three choices — McBoo, McPunk'n and McGoblin.
October 2016 was the last time the pails were available in the U.S., McDonald's said.
