No matter how long it’s been, McDonald’s fans never forget the feeling of opening a Happy Meal® box to see the surprises inside. Last year, McDonald’s gave fans the chance to relive that excitement as adults with the Cactus Plant Flea Market Box. Now, McDonald’s is once again sparking nostalgic joy with the help of a visionary artist and some very special Buddies.

IntroducingThe Kerwin Frost Box – a one-of-a-kind global collaboration with artist and lifelong McDonald’s fan, Kerwin Frost – launching in the U.S. and other select markets around the world starting Dec. 11.

The Kerwin Frost Box includes the choice of 10-piece Chicken McNuggets® or a Big Mac®, World Famous Fries®, a soft drink and a special McNugget Buddy collectible.

The McNugget Buddies were first introduced in 1988 as part of a limited time Happy Meal featuring ten different McNugget Buddy collectibles. They’re best known for their wacky adventures and personalities, wild imaginations and interchangeable outfits.

Growing up in Harlem, New York, Kerwin found his McNugget Buddy collection to be a source of creative inspiration. The reimagined Buddies included in the Kerwin Frost Box are inspired by Kerwin’s childhood experiences and belief that everyone should feel free to express themselves.

“I’ve loved McDonald’s since I was a kid and it was my dream to collect all the McNugget Buddies,” said Kerwin Frost. “Now, coming up with my own special set of Buddies – each one representing different aspects of self-expression – it’s unreal, a dream come true. I hope the Kerwin Frost Box will serve as a reminder for people to hone their creativity and not be afraid to show the world who they really are.”

“With last year’s Cactus Plant Flea Market Box, we unlocked the childlike joy of opening a Happy Meal box for fans of all ages,” said Tariq Hassan, McDonald’s USA Chief Marketing and Customer Experience Officer. “Fans told us they wanted to celebrate that quintessential childhood experience again. So, we’re excited to team up with Kerwin on this next take, as he brings his own childhood McDonald’s memories to life through reimagined McDonald’s characters, immersing our fans in the world of Frost Way.”

Pick up the Kerwin Frost Box at participating McDonald’s restaurants starting Dec. 11 while supplies last.
