The INSIDER Summary:
Minions are some of the biggest characters from Disney and now they’re taking over McDonald’s.
McDonald’s is making a menu dedicated to the small yellow characters.
It will include ice cream cones, fried potatoes, banana pie and Happy Meal toys.
This summer Disney has been doing the most. From rolling out boozy Dole whip to light-up cotton candy to color-changing lemonades— and even quietly dropping an entire secret menu— the most magical place on earth has left a lot of food brands in the dust.
Not one to be outdone, McDonald’s is stepping up with a brand new menu dedicated solely to the lovable yellow characters stars of Universal’s «Despicable Me» series. And, as you can imagine, it’s one of the cutest things we’ve ever seen. Here’s everything you need to know:
There’s a minion ice cream cone.
The nearly neon yellow swirl is flavored like — what else? — banana and the bright blue cone offers that signature overalls look. Unsurprisingly, social media is having a field day with this insanely colorful cone, tagging it #mcdgoesyellow. Some people are even asking for it dunked in chocolate (which we had NO IDEA was a thing at the Golden Arches!).
The fried potatoes beat smiley fries ten times over.
Seriously, though, there’s no competition. These minion-shaped «potato nuggets» (a.k.a super fluffy fries) are super crispy and almost too cute to eat.
It's that time of the year again ?? Okay guys, You've got to admit these are sooooo adorable?!? So I tried the new Minion potatoes and they are basically mashed potatoes encased in a hashbrown-like exterior. Taste wise, they just taste like normal potatoes but they are so cute!! Personal tip — I like to dip them in curry sauce! ??
Banana pie > Apple pie.
In lieu of its traditional baked apple pies, McDonald’s is serving up special-edition banana pies to honor the minions’ favorite treat.
[NEW!] MINIONS ARE INVADING MCDONALD'S! Don't tell your friends: these yellow-evil-banana loving creatures will be out in stores TOMORROW (8 June). . Besides the bananananana pie, there's also the super cute minion potatoes and get this: SPICY NUGGETS, all of them available in less than 24 hours! The minion potatoes are just ??✨! . Thank you @golin_global and @mcdsg for sending over these cuties! . #mcdgoesyellow #mcdonalds #minions
The happy meal toys are to die for.
These are seriously come of the most adorable pieces of junk plastic to come out of a Mickey D’s Happy Meal box. We’re not ones for clutter like this, but we’d happily stock up on the entire set of these interactive little guys.

Sadly, this minion-fied menu is a tie-in for the new movie, «Despicable Me 3,» and is only available on the Dollar Menu at McDonald’s locations in Singapore. Book a flight now before it’s gone, or drown your sorrows in some more spiked Dole whip at home.
