Macca’s New BTS Meal Has Finally Arrived

Including one of the most popular dipping sauces overseas.

21st Century global pop icons, BTS is touring Australia with a one-of-a-kind menu, starting from Thursday, May 27. 

Although, this isn’t the first time the fast-food giant has teamed up with celebrities on their favourite orders. Last year, Travis Scott revealed his regular order, and it almost caused a quarter pounder shortage for some restaurants in the U.S.

Since 2013, BTS has topped music charts and brought people together from all over the world through their music and positive messages. Over the next few months, BTS fans everywhere will find themselves that much closer to their favourite artists, because for the first time since

McDonald’s launched its celebrity signature orders program in the U.S. last year, the BTS Meal will be available globally in nearly 50 countries.

The BTS Meal includes a 10-piece Chicken McNuggets, large World Famous Fries, large soft drink, and Sweet Chili and Cajun dipping sauces inspired by popular recipes from McDonald’s South Korea. 

Australian customers will be able to order the BTS Meal in-restaurant, through contactless mobile order and pay in the McDonald’s App, at the Drive-Thru or via McDelivery.

In celebration of the collaboration, there is an exclusive merch line fans can get their hands on via the Weverse Shop App. This head-to-toe collection is inspired by some of the hand-picked menu items from the BTS Meal, with dynamite threads like hoodies, purple bathrobes, socks and sandals.

Whether it’s the McDonald’s fry box logo with seven fries for each BTS member, or the marriage of BTS purple with McDonald’s red and gold, these designs are the perfect representation of an iconic partnership between two fan-favourite brands. And to get it, you must download the Weverse Shop app and create an account to access the merch drop.

Be sure to keep an eye out on McDonald’s social channels @mcdonaldsau for regular updates on this partnership.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
