Oh gosh. Minions are so freaking adorable! I could never understand 95% of what they’re saying, but I can’t deny how cute they are. I watched that darn ‘Banana & Potato Song’ video to death because it was oddly hypnotic listening to the Minions singing about bananas and potatoes. 😀
So maybe you can imagine how excited I felt when McDonald’s sent me the complete Minions Happy Meal collectibles in the mail!!! That’s right, it’s time for more Minions Happy Meal 2015 edition!
As I’m sure most of you are aware, there will be a Minions movie hitting the cinemas soon, but you can start getting your Minions fix even before then with the help of McDonald’s. They brought back the Minions Happy Meals!
There are 10 Minion toys to collect this time around, and each toy does something different so make it a mission to collect them all!
Meet Kevin, Stuart, and Bob, the main stars of the Minions movie. By some bizarre coincidence, Kevin the Minion reminds me so much of Kevin my brother—they’re both the tallest guy in the room during most days, but both are adorable giants haha!
Although I love all the toys, my most favourite would have to be this Vampire Minion because for some reason I find this whole dark purple vampire get-up so hilarious! When you flip the switch and its arms start moving up and down, it’s almost like the Minion is dancing Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’.
Another favourite is this super cute Egyptian Hula Minion! It spins the hoop around its waist when you press the button on its head. Cutie pie!!
And what about this Martial Arts Minion that does a mean spinning kick when wound? Giving Bruce Lee a run for his money, I see! 😛
Apart from the Happy Meal toys, you can also experience the Minions craze in other ways only at McDonald’s! The Minions Medium Fries n’ McFloat combo (Php 65) features the McDonald’s classic fries with the new Honey Banana McFloat, a refreshing honey and banana flavoured drink topped with vanilla soft serve.
They also have the Minions Medium Fries n’ McFlurry Combo (Php 95), where you can choose between the two new McFlurry flavours: Banana McFlurry with Oreo, where the McDonald’s classic Oreo McFlurry gets a banana-licious twist; or try out the Banana Crumble McFlurry, which is a mix of crushed graham and banana flavour blended in creamy vanilla soft serve.
If you’re looking for just a quick cold treat then go for the Minions Banana McDip (Php 15), which is the McDonald’s classic vanilla soft serve covered in banana-flavoured dip atop a blue wafer cone. Minions in ice cream form!
Want to have a Minions experience with your friends? Well McDonald’s got that covered too! You can enjoy both meal combos above via their BFF Bundles. Minions BFF Fries n’ McFloat Combo is at Php 165, and the Minions BFF Fries n’ McFlurry Combo is at Php 225.
So I guess I don’t have to say it twice when I tell you to head on over to McDonald’s and find a Minions treat that will capture your heart! These Minions Happy Meal and limited-edition menu offers are all available in McDonald’s stores nationwide so drive to your nearest McDonald’s right now before they’re gone!
