News: Despicable Me 4 Has Arrived at Maccas

McDonald’s Australia and Illumination are partnering to transform Macca’s restaurants across Australia in celebration of Despicable Me 4, arriving in cinemas on 20 June. 

From Wednesday 12 June for a limited time only, Macca’s will be unleashing the joy of the Minions in restaurants across Australia with Despicable Me 4 inspired menu items.

The menu features three banana flavoured desserts – back by popular demand, a Happy Meal with 12 exciting toys, bespoke themed packaging and more.

Nichole Tsiros, Senior Brand Manager for McDonald’s Australia, said: “We’re so excited to collaborate with Illumination’s Despicable Me franchise for what is certain to be one of the biggest blockbuster movies of the year. Since they first appeared in 2010’s Despicable Me, the Minions have become global icons, infiltrating pop culture in a meaningful way.

“Like the Minions themselves, our Happy Meals are playful and nostalgic with inter-generational appeal. With our Despicable Me 4 Happy Meal, we’re taking that fun, feel-good experience to the next level by offering moments of connection for the entire family, with a range of menu items for the small and big kids. 

“The Minions are taking over, but not for long, so head into your nearest Macca’s before they’re gone!”

Bananas for the whole family  

For the big kids, the Minions’ favourite flavour is taking a prime spot on the Macca’s dessert menu, with three sweet treats: the Banana Thickshake, Banana Caramel Pie, and Banana Caramel McFlurry available with Vanilla or Chocolate Soft Serve. 

The fan favourite Banana Thickshake is back by popular demand and is an impossibly thick and incredibly delicious shake that is made with creamy, fresh milk and banana-flavoured syrup.

Making a return since it last appeared on menus in 2020 is the Banana Caramel Pie. Featuring crisp, golden pastry filled with creamy banana custard and delicious caramel sauce it is the ultimate winter warmer. 

The already delicious Banana Caramel Pie is made even better as a McFlurry. Introducing the Banana Caramel McFlurry – crisp pastry pieces filled with a creamy banana custard and caramel sauce on a bed of Vanilla or Chocolate Soft Serve, topped with an extra drizzle of caramel sauce.  

For the kids, the Minions will take over the Macca’s Happy Meal for a limited time.  

As part of the Despicable Me 4  Happy Meal, customers will have the choice of an exciting activity book with glimpses into the new movie or a toy. There are 12 limited edition Mix and Match Minion toys up for grabs, giving kids the chance to build and interact with their favourite Minion. 

Despicable Me 4  Packaging

Across Macca’s restaurants nationwide, customers can immerse themselves in the Minions magic with full restaurant takeovers including Despicable Me 4 -themed decorations.   

The limited-edition Despicable Me 4 Happy Meal, Banana Shake, Caramel Banana Pie and Caramel Banana Pie McFlurry are available across Macca’s restaurants nationwide, via the MyMacca’s App and McDelivery, from Wednesday 12 June, while stocks last.
