Another fuming customer, Joannah Barnard, said: “No happiness for the UK!”

Justin Humphreys wrote: “I imagine there must be a distinct lack of happy adults in the UK.”

Francesca Marston pointed out: “They should offer a smaller meal option for adults like a happy meal size though, not everybody can eat a full meal – elderly people or ones without a big appetite probably feel full up on a happy meal.”

People even began to joke about the toy that comes with a happy meal and some asked if they would get an ‘adult toy’ instead.

Barry Bridges joked: “I wonder what the toy will be” and in response Ash Houghton wrote: “UK wouldn’t allow the toy selection.”
