Customers will be able to experience the band’s signature order at participating restaurants nationwide beginning June 18, 2021, as part of this one-of-a-kind menu “tour.”
It includes 10 pieces of Chicken McNuggets, medium-sized fries, medium soda, and dipping sauces (sweet chili and cajun) inspired by McDonald’s recipes in South Korea.
“The band has great memories with McDonald’s. We’re excited about this collaboration and can’t wait to share the BTS Meal with the world,” BigHit Music, BTS’ management, said in a statement.
