Proof that Filipinos are truly mad for the small, yellow, lovable goggled Minions, did you know that McDonald’s Philippines started a pre-ordering scheme for the Minions Happy Meals half-way through June?
There is definitely something about the Minions that kids and even adults find so hard to resist that collectors of the Happy Meal Minion toys in the past wiped out stocks from the fast food chain in a flash.
So, in order to make sure everyone gets a fair chance of completing the Minions movie’s 10 collectible toys before the film opens on July 8, McDonald’s came up with a clever scheme of offering a set of 10 Minion Happy Meal food stubs, redeemable before the Minions toys became individually and officially available to the public today. And yes, they were sold out.
What’s more, The Manila Times just learned that the fast food chain is even revamping its menu to include Minions-themed desserts, like the Minions McDip, and a trio of the yellow cuties’ favorite food (what else but the banana) in a Honey Banana McFloat, a Banana McFlurry with Oreo, and a Banana Crumble McFlurry.
Now that’s Minion madness for sure.
