McDonald’s UK issues disappointing update on launch of Happy Meals for adults

The fast food chain McDonald’s has released a crushing announcement regarding its UK menu.

Adults are so upset by the news, they say they are unable to sleep at night.

Previously, fans on social media were thrilled to hear that McDonald’s would be selling adult Happy Meals.

However, the headlines obscured the fact that they’re actually only going to be available in the US, Manchester Evening News reports.

A McDonald’s spokesperson told the publication: “We have no plans to roll this out in the UK.”

MEN shared the news on Facebook, and people were far from thrilled by the news.

Joannah Barnard slammed the news, saying: “No happiness for the UK!”

Justin Humphreys wrote: “I imagine there must be a distinct lack of happy adults in the UK.”

Angie Norwood-Pearson said: “Absolutely devastating. […] I won’t sleep at night knowing I won’t get an adult happy meal .”

Damo Pritt said: “That doesn’t make me HAPPY at all.”

Danny Robinson said: “We’re getting the miserable Karen meal.” Ian Duerdin laughed: “Don’t tell Jamie Oliver.”

Francesca Marston suggested: “They should offer a smaller meal option for adults like a happy meal size though, not everybody can eat a full meal – elderly people or ones without a big appetite probably feel full up on a happy meal.”

Diane Bracegirdle said: “I’d still buy the kids one for myself I’ve been having them for donkeys years.” Cathie Leather commented “Happy meals aren’t just for kids, it says “happy meal”.”

Others couldn’t help but make the same joke. Dave Felix said: “What’s so special?? Does it come with an “Adult Toy”?!? Hahaha.”

Barry Bridges laughed: “I wonder what the toy will be.” Ash Houghton wrote: “Uk wouldn’t allow the toy selection.”

Neil Looker said: “Because it will probably have adult toys in it and everyone is prude over here.”
