It’s like a Happy Meal for larger appetites. It includes the choice of 10-piece Chicken McNuggets® or a Big Mac®, World Famous Fries®, a soft drink and a McNugget Buddy collectible.

If you don’t remember the McNugget Buddy collectibles, that’s because they haven’t been around for 25 years, McDonald’s says.

They were first launched in the Happy Meal in 1988.

Kerwin Frost is a DJ, comedian and talk show host.
