After months of waiting for the arrival of a one-of-a-kind “menu tour” here in the Philippines, McDonald’s is finally serving the BTS Meal in stores today.
Made in collaboration with K-pop group BTS, the meal consists of the boys’ favorite McDonald’s items: 10 pieces Chicken McNuggets, medium World Famous Fries, medium Coca-Cola, and Sweet Chili and Cajun dipping sauces inspired by recipes from the chain’s South Korea outlets.
For those wondering, the Sweet Chili sauce has a sweet and chili pepper heat with a slight vinegar flavor, while the Cajun Sauce is a hot mustard with a sweet and slightly sour taste and a hint of Cajun spices.
The BTS Meal comes in a special packaging featuring the BTS logo.
In a press launch held a day before the menu drop, McDonald’s Philippines marketing manager Oliver Rabatan said, “The BTS Meal is a new way to connect with the fans (ARMYs).”
“This band is truly a global phenomenon with a fanbase that knows no borders, and we couldn’t be more excited to bring the BTS Meal to our customers in the Philippines,” added Rabatan.
Fans can also check out the purple photo booth McDonald’s will be mounting on June 21 in its branches nationwide. The BTS x McDonald’s merch collection is also available through the WeVerse Shop App.
The BTS Meal is available starting June 18 until June 27 only for dine-in, takeout, drive-thre, and delivery. Irah Marie Tan
