Remember when adorable yellow figures took the internet by storm in 2010? That’s right, they were the Minions that first appeared in Despicable Me! These tiny little henchmen have been seen less recently but now, they are making their way back into the public eye as new collectibles at none other than McDonald’s.

Launching on the 4 Sep, McDonald’s will be releasing 35 different toys to be collected in a capsule when you purchase a Happy Meal. These toys will be slowly released for us to collect, with only 7 being made available per week.

Feeling lucky? You might be one of the few to chance upon the rare and limited golden Minions which will be randomly distributed in the capsules.  

While the toys cannot be chosen or exchanged, that is just all part of the fun of gacha-like collectibles, allowing people of all ages to enjoy the thrills of getting a surprise to brighten up your day.

New food and drinks

Now then, with the release of new Happy Meal toys, how can all this joy be completed without the addition of a new menu? For just the price of $2, you can treat yourself to a box of 6 Minion Potatoes. That’s right, you didn’t read that wrong! McDonald’s will be featuring everyone’s favorite little yellow henchman as potatoes for us to feast on.

And of course we can’t forget about desserts! Enjoy McDonald’s all new Yuzu Cream Cheese Pie and Melon Waffle Cone which are sure to satiate our cravings.

What’s more, we now have a brand new bottle sauce to enjoy. Introducing the Smoky Nacho Cheese Sauce. Each bottle is available at $5.50 with the purchase of Chicken McNuggets or a Happy Sharing Box. This is a definite must get for cheese lovers all over Singapore!  

Make sure to catch these exciting new food and desserts as soon as they come out and all the best in your hunt for the golden Minions!
