Just when you thought BTS and McDonald’s was done with their merchandise collaboration, they decided to drop a whole new collection for fans to fight over on WeVerse!
The two new collections, which one is appropriately called the “Saucy Collection” features characters hand-drawn by BTS themselves. It’s not like their BT21 characters. No. These characters are based on McDonald’s menu and are so adorable. I want them all.
With the release of BTS’ new hit song Butter, it makes sense for McDonald’s to jump at the chance of a collaboration since we know McDonald’s isn’t the healthiest option for our cholesterol.

The anticipated BTS and McDonald’s collaboration is now at your local McDonald’s. You can order the BTS Meal, which consists of a 10-piece chicken nugget meal with French fries and a drink, along with two special sauces — Cajun and Sweet Chili. Get your scrapbooks ready for the BTS labels that are placed on the meal.
In what is the greatest idea that McDonald’s has ever done, besides the McRib, is finally happening. McDonald’s has announced they are teaming up with one of the biggest icons in the world — BTS.
McDonald’s are creating a one-of-a-king “tour” which kicks off on May 26 in the U.S. where fans can enjoy the BTS meal at participating restaurants worldwide. The BTS meal consists of the group’s favorite item from McDonald’s — 10-piece Chicken McNuggets, medium World Famous Fries®, medium Coke®, and for the first time ever in the U.S., Sweet Chili and Cajun dipping sauces inspired by popular recipes from McDonald’s South Korea.
