Burger King serves up 'not-so-happy' meals

No one is happy all the time’ Burger King debuts Pissed Meal Blue Meal Yaas Meal and DGAF Meal for Mental Health Month

May is Mental Health Awareness month, and to tie in with that Burger King in the USA are introducing a special range of boxed meals that include a P***ed Meal, Blue Meal, Salty Meal, Yaaas Meal and DGAF (Don't Give a F***) Meal.

Whether your feeling, sad, happy, angry or just "meh", Burger King's Real Meals have you covered.

"A natural extension of encouraging people to "be their way" is encouraging them to 'feel their way, '" said the chain in a press release that came out with the introduction of the Real Meals.

Brand marketers-especially fast-food companies like Wendy's and Denny's-have latched onto anxiety and depression as marketing "trends" in recent years, attempting to appear relatable to millennials and Gen Z. The announcement tweet even referenced a popular meme-"not sure who needed to hear this today, but it's ok not to be happy all the time".

Here's the thing about the McDonald's Happy Meal - what if you're not happy? The meals include the Whopper meal or a Whopper, fries, and a drink.

A video posted to YouTube shows several people experiencing a myriad of emotions as they go through their day. To get the deal, customers had to download the Burger King app on their phones.

The boxes include "pissed", "blue", "salty", "YAAAS", and "DGAF".

A royal statement has since been issued on the new union confirming that Tidjai had officially been crowned as queen. King Maha Vajiralongkorn , 66, became the constitutional monarch after the death of his much-loved father in 2016.

Along with the announcement, Burger King also released an ad with people experiencing complex emotions - pissed at their bosses, annoyed at being ghosted, exhausted of living with their parents. When customers order a Whopper meal, their food will come in a box of their choosing.

To bring attention to the cause, Burger King partnered with Mental Health America.

While many are praising a partnership that supports destigmatizing mental health issues, some are disappointed that Burger King doesn't do more to support its own employees.

When we are feeling a bit down, we need that one meal that will uplift our mood.

The idea is to address the importance of mental health.

The boxes are available while supplies last in Austin, Seattle, Miami, Los Angeles, and New York City.
