Fans are loving it.
K-pop super group BTS’ highly anticipated meal collaboration with McDonald’s has finally dropped, much to the delight of the group’s devoted ARMY of followers.
The “BTS Meal,” which McDonald’s announced was in the works back in April, became available in participating US restaurants on Wednesday.
The BTS meal comes with the seven-member boy band’s signature order: a 10-piece chicken McNuggets, medium fries, medium Coke and two new dipping sauces — Chili and Cajun — inspired by recipes from McDonald’s in South Korea.
The meal comes after the sensation’s four honors at Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards, where they debuted their new single, “Butter.”
At 7 p.m. EDT Wednesday evening, an additional merchandise collaboration between the band and brand is set to launch: The “head-to-toe collection” includes hoodies, bathrobes, socks and sandals — all imprinted with images of the McDonald’s fry box logo (with seven fries, one for each BTS member) in a color palette of purple (for BTS), red and gold (for McDonald’s) — inspired by items from the menu, according to a press release.
The collection will become exclusively available on the Weverse Shop app, BTS’ official fan merchandise store.
“Iconic collab,” the Guinness World Records’ official Twitter account commented on one of McDonald’s tweets announcing that the BTS Meal had dropped and sharing a video of the band promoting it.
And for concerned fans, yes, the BTS meal is coming with free photocards, McDonald’s confirmed.
The BTS Meal will be available in the U.S. through June 20. It follows a series of McDonald’s celebrity signature order collaborations, including one with Colombian musician J. Balvin and a wildly successful one with rapper Travis Scott.
Scott’s meal, called the Cactus Jack and priced at $6, featured a Quarter Pounder with cheese, sizzling bacon and crisp lettuce, medium fries with BBQ sauce and a Sprite.
The “TKN” singer reportedly became a die-hard Golden Arches fan after growing up eating at the chain in his native Houston.
“I couldn’t be more excited to bring the Cactus Jack x McDonald’s collaboration to life,” he said at the time.
The meal was so popular that it sparked a national burger shortage.
