McDonald’s bring back Share a Coke Hawaiian-style

They’re back.

Remember those McDonald’s cups that feature Hawaiian words and phrases?

Well, running from November through the end of December, McDonald’s is bringing back Share a Coke Hawaiian-style.

The eight limited edition Share a Coke cups feature 16 holiday words or phrases in Hawaiian.

Hau‘oli Makahiki Hou (Happy New Year), maluhia (peace), wehi (decoration, ornament) and howzit are among some of the colorful and warm phrases and words that will be on the over 4 million Hawaiian-style cups during the 8-week promotion.

“We’re so excited to bring back this fun, local campaign,” said Melanie Okazaki, McDonald’s Restaurants of Hawaii regional marketing manager. “Share a Coke Hawaiian-style is, and will always be, a campaign for our customers here in Hawaii who know and love the culture, and for those visitors who may want to learn a new Hawaiian word or two while visiting.”

McDonald’s customers are encouraged to get into the festive spirit and snap a selfie with their favorite Share a Coke cup while sharing their holiday tradition and posting it on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook using the #ShareACokeMcDHI hashtag.

Share a Coke Hawaiian-style first launched in August 2015 with 24 local words and phrases printed on limited-edition fountain drink cups.
