“It’s the McBoo Bucket, Charlie Brown!” Halloween Happy Meal 2016

9

It’s been several years since the fast food chains have given fans of Halloween something to get excited about.  Gone are the days of the Burger King Universal Studios Monsters and the McDonald’s Halloween McNugget Buddies.  However, we can still be thankful for McDonald’s McBoo Pails!  Recently, they have all been licensed and usually with properties that have very little to do with Halloween.  That, however, is changing this year. For the first time in several years, McDonald’s is giving us a Halloween Happy Meal to remember…  McBoo Buckets adorned with The Peanuts, as they appear in the classic TV special “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!”

The “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” Halloween Happy Meal toys will be unleashed at the end of October.  Each bucket comes with a set of “Great Pumpkin” character stickers that can be used to decorate the bucket.  Limited time only, while supplies last.

Dinner on Halloween Night

The real question on Halloween night isn’t “What’s for dessert?”  It’s “What’s for dinner?”

The following does not constitute an endorsement of any product or retailer.   It is for information purposes only.

There are a variety of options out there when it comes to dining on Halloween night, before all of the trick or treating festivities begin.  Many folks opt for a traditional dinner.  They eat whatever they normally would before heading out for Ghost Night.  Some, however, get a little more festive.  They order special treats, like the Papa Murphy’s Jack-O’-Lantern Pizza.

But there are plenty of other options!  One thing is for certain, no Halloween dinner would be complete without the “Official Drink of Halloween”….  Chocolate Milk.  This year, Kroger stores are selling bottles of the creepy concoction with a “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” theme.  Paired with some Bat-Shaped Chicken Nuggets from Banquet…  That sounds like three cheers from The Wolf Man to me.
