It’s a big day for fast food fans and boy band lovers alike: McDonald’s has launched its BTS official band meal in select countries.
BTS, also known as the Bangtan Boys, is a popular seven-member South Korean boy band. McDonald’s customers across Canada and the US can now order the highly anticipated meal for themselves.
Inspired by recipes from the franchises’ South Korean locations, the signature order features 10 chicken McNuggets, medium fries, medium coke, and sweet chili and cajun dipping sauces.

Many folks that ordered today had no complaints about the food itself, but what it arrived in.
Some customers shared their grief about receiving their eats in regular McDonald’s bags, boxes, and cups, and not the purple branded packaging shown in some promo material.
The responses made us both laugh and cry.

Got my #BTSxMcDonalds #BTSMeal I was so excited but was met with no bts themed anything except the sauces. They didn’t even have the btsxmcd crew shirts on….I feel robbed of happiness. #badabababaimsadness @BTS_twt @McDonalds pic.twitter.com/Q3JG6XGmTC

Hi. I am so upset right now and almost in tears. I went to my local McDonald’s for 2 BTS meals and this is what I got. When I asked why I didn’t get the proper packaging they had no reason. If I wasn’t so darn hungry I would’ve asked for a full refund. @ErlingerJoe @MorgsF pic.twitter.com/mWUtsHzB1E

I’m so upset y’all 😭 My meal was NOT in the packaging that other ppl posted. Idk who’s at fault, but if they’re going to have it in other locations, they should have it for all. It was the only reason I decided to buy the meal (I did delivery & got 2 meals), so money wasted 😔 pic.twitter.com/mQqsVgzGWp

Umm, #BTSMeal where? I’m pretty bummed that there’s no BTS packing as advertised.

It’s worth noting that tons of people have received cute BTS collab designs with their McDonald’s order, so I guess it’s just a matter of right place, right time to get these products while supplies last.

McDonald’s Canada says the purple packaging is rolling out across the country and should be available at most locations. So if you’re ordering from north of the border you should be okay.
Orders for the BTS meal can be placed online, in-restaurant, or through the McDonald’s app for delivery until June 21.
