McDonald’s launched the new Saweetie Meal with a side of “Saweetie ‘N Sour” sauce Monday. The fast-food chain’s latest celebrity menu collaboration – it’s first with a female musician – is going to be available for a limited time at participating restaurants nationwide. It includes an enormous Mac, four-piece Chicken McNuggets, medium fries, medium Sprite, Tangy BBQ Sauce, and a renamed Sweet ‘N Sour sauce. Since September 2020, McDonald’s has launched similar limited-edition celebrity meals with Travis Scott, J Balvin, and with South Korean pop band BTS, which are popular.
“McDonald’s and that I run deep – from growing up back in Hayward, California, during my college days – so I had to bring my icy gang in on my all-time favorites,” Saweetie said during a statement last month when announcing the Aug. 9 launch. “Depending on the mood I’m in, there are numerous ways to enjoy my order.” The “Best Friend” rapper’s real name is Diamonté Harper and her first hit single was “Icy Girl.” McDonald’s said the meal is going to be served in “icy new packaging inspired by her own style.” The meal is going to be available to order in restaurants, the drive-thru, with McDelivery, and on the McDonald’s app using contactless mobile order and pay.
McDonald’s said the meal’s price will vary supported location. Before the collaboration with Scott last fall, the chain hasn’t had a star meal or “McDonald’s Famous Order” in nearly 30 years when it partnered with Michael Jordan in 1992 for the McJordan. Scott’s meal led to shortages of key ingredients across the state . In October, McDonald’s had the J Balvin Meal with the award-winning reggaeton artist and therefore the BTS Meal was available globally this summer.
McDonald’s is requiring masks again for patrons and employees in areas with high COVID transmission. McDonald’s announced Monday that it’s giving fans the prospect to win two limited-edition handbags – one for them and one for his or her ally – from Brandon Blackwood, one among Saweetie’s favorite bag designers, alongside a five-day trip to Las Vegas for 2 to ascertain her perform. Through Sept. 5, order the meal within the McDonald’s app to be entered for an opportunity to win the prize worth $9,175. The winner is going to be selected randomly.
