McDonald’s is going global for its next celebrity meal.
The fast food chain lit social media up earlier today when it announced its partnership with popular South Korean boy band BTS for its next celebrity meal.

Inspired by the K-pop group’s signature order at the fast food chain, the aptly called BTS Meal includes 10-piece Chicken McNuggets, medium fries, and a medium Coke. Also included in the limited-time meal are sweet chili and cajun dipping sauces, which are a nod to menu items at McDonald’s locations in BTS’ home country. Both sauces have never been available in the U.S. before.
BTS’ legion of fans called ARMY is thrilled about the collab, though some of them were a little bit surprised that the meal doesn’t include an Oreo McFlurry, as there’s a viral clip from a couple of years ago showing BTS member V ordering the dessert.
since we’re getting BTS x Mcdonalds’ “BTS meal”, it reminds me of taehyung ordering oreo mcflurry 🥺 pic.twitter.com/h2KpLX0Qi1

The BTS Meal will be available in the U.S., Canada, and Brazil starting May 26th and will roll out to nearly 50 other countries across the globe through the end of June. The meal goes on sale in South Korea on May 27th.
This marks the first time McDonald’s will offer one of its celebrity meals in so several locations outside of the U.S., and given the worldwide popularity of BTS, there’s no doubt that the BTS meal is going to be a hit.
