Happy Now? Do McDonald’s New Adult Happy Meals Tap Nostalgia, or Coddle Perpetual Infants?

McDonald’s now offers adult Happy Meals, and they’re a huge hit. It’s actually a Big Mac (or 10 chicken nuggets), drink and fries in a Cactus Plant Flea Market box, the streetwear company that also designed the included toy surprise.

Is this a delightful callback to a more innocent age, or an attempt to coddle perpetual infants who long for their binkie, their blankie, and their Hamburglar figurine?
