McDonald’s Bringing Back Halloween Buckets in New York State?
If you're someone like me, who grew up in the late '90s and into the early 2000s, then you probably have nostalgia for much of the same things.
3D Doritos, Tamagotchi, Squeez-Its, Ecto-Cooler, Keenan & Kel, Rocko's Modern Life, and plenty of other TV shows and food items that make us miss our childhood.
Fast food chain nostalgia is also a big thing and if you have noticed, many companies have decided to gradually bring back stuff from the '90s, since the '90s nostalgia craze is at an all-time high.
Do you remember the Halloween buckets/pails from McDonald's?
They were a big deal during the month of October from the late '80s and into the '90s, although they lost popularity by 2000. They were first orange colored and then glow in the dark, with different characters.
It appears the beloved Halloween pails making a comeback this year.
According to Nightmare Nostalgia, an employee from McDonald's (including other employees who have said the same), confirmed through a company calendar that the Halloween pails will make a return in 2022; officially on October 18th and ending on Halloween, October 31st.
There's no official word from McDonald's this is happening but the signs are all there. The buckets themselves here are likely not what they will look like either. The photo art above was fan-made and chances are they look different.
Still, so many people in their 30's and 40's are rejoicing. Yes, these are meant for kids, who will go crazy for them, but adults will absolutely be in deep nostalgia for these Halloween buckets.
This will also appear to be nationwide, which should include McDonald's in New York.
