We’re counting down the days until the BTS Meal arrives at McDonald’s! The band’s favourite order – featuring a 10-piece Chicken McNuggets, medium World Famous Fries, medium Coke, and Sweet Chili and Cajun dipping sauces inspired by recipes from McDonald’s South Korea – will be available across all restaurants in West and South India on June 04th. But in the meantime, we’re kicking off the fun early.
To make this international collaboration even more special and fun, exclusive BTS X McDonald’s merchandise is now available on the WeVerse Shop App for all fans across India. This head-to-toe collection is inspired by some of the craveable, 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-favorite brands. Fans can visit the app, start browsing, and purchase their favorite merchandise directly from the online store. You just need download the Weverse Shop app and create an account and start shopping.
