Adult Happy Meals have arrived…..and in some parts of town, they’re gone.

Yup. Within just days of being released, McDonald’s Adult Happy Meals have sold out in some El Paso locations.

I probably contributed to this issue because the day they were released, my son and I made sure we got our hands on those meals and honestly, I regret nothing!

What the heck is an Adult Happy Meal:

Whoever is in the marketing department of Mcdonalds is a genius because the second I heard about these adult happy meals, I was sold. Why? Because there’s nothing like feeling like a kid again even at the age of 34.

An Adult Happy meal is a Happy Meal-like box designed in Cactus Plant's aesthetic, with McDonaldland characters shown with the four-eyed style

The meal does not include a bottle of liquor (Although I think it totally should) but it does include a Big Mac or 10-piece Chicken McNuggets, fries and a drink.

Each order also includes one of four figurines—Grimace, Hamburglar, Birdie or Cactus Plant's “Cactus Buddy!”

Where Can I Find These Adult Happy Meals:

Well, I was lucky enough to grab one of these Adult Happy meals just in time before they sold out at some El Paso locations, but  some El Pasoans haven’t been so lucky.

I decided to ask the people of El Paso where they got their adult happy meals and also which locations are sold out because this is the kind of information the whole city MUST have!
