Mcdonald's Chicken Nuggets

News in this week of McDonald’s latest celebrity-link up. After the success of last years Travis Scott and J Balvin meals, the chain have announced Korean pop group BTS will be next.

  • Medium fries
  • Medium drink
  • Two (new) dipping sauces

The new dipping sauces will be Sweet Chili and Cajun – inspired by recipes from McDonald’s South Korea. The new meal will hit stores on May 26th. No word yet on pricing.
