WESTFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) — The popular Halloween Happy Meal pumpkin pails are returning to McDonald’s just in time for Halloween, but will you be able to get them at your local Massachusetts McDonald’s?
Short answer: Yes.
22News contacted multiple McDonald’s locations in several western Massachusetts counties, and all of them said that they would be offering the pails starting Tuesday, October 18. To get a pail, you must purchase a regular Happy Meal; it will come in the pail instead of the usual red box with the golden arches. The promotion will continue until Halloween.
A representative with a Westfield location told 22News that they will begin selling the Halloween Happy Meal pumpkin pails beginning at 10 a.m. Tuesday. Several additional locations verified they do have them in stock:
- McDonald’s at the Ludlow Service Plaza
- McDonald’s on 121 Hampton Terrace in Easthampton
- McDonald’s at the Blandford Service Plaza westbound
- McDonald’s on 17 Union St. in North Adams
- McDonald’s on 208 Mohawk Trail in Greenfield
If you are dead set on getting a pail, especially later in the month, you might want to call your local McDonald’s store ahead of your visit just to make sure it has them available.
Originally released in the 1980s with three orange jack-o-lantern pails available, this year, there will be nine different options available: three different McBoo faces, three different McPunk’n faces and three different McGoblin faces.
