The BTS meal

The BTS Meal includes a 9 or 10-piece Chicken McNuggets and, depending on location, a medium order of fries, and a medium drink. The meal also includes two limited edition sauces — sweet chili and cajun — that are inspired by menu items at McDonald’s in South Korea, which is where BTS is from. 

According to USA Today, the collaboration will be on the menu until June 20. Fans can also go backstage on the McDonald’s app to check out behind-the-scenes content of BTS from the collaboration. New types of content will launch on the app on different dates through the end of the partnership.

In September 2020, McDonald’s launched a partnership with Travis Scott, which included a menu item inspired by the rapper’s favorite meal and exclusive Cactus Jack x McDonald’s merchandise.

Following the success of the Travis Scott meal, the J Balvin meal was added to the menu in October, which included a McDonald’s signature Big Mac, fries with ketchup, and an Oreo McFlurry, according to the Associated Press

The Travis Scott meal marked the first time a celebrity had been featured on the McDonald’s menu since the 1992 Michael Jordan collaboration titled the “McJordan Special,” as reported by Newsweek.
