McDonald's X BTS meal review: Is it dynamite?

McDonald's X BTS meal review: Is it dynamite?

Worth the hype?

Text: Brandon Alexius Chia


D-Day. The BTS McDonald's meal has at last, reached Singapore and we can already hear the ARMY screaming for it. Whether you are a fan or not, we've all seen the hilarious memes across the Internet about this unique collaboration between McDonald's and, arguably, the most popular K-pop group of all time.

Although many of us flocked to the McDelivery app and website to queue virtually at 11am sharp, we expect that some of you would not have the chance to try them due to outlets running out of stock, or perhaps you might not even think it's worth the hassle. Not to fret, we have the riot-inducing nuggets with us and we will be giving you the most honest food review ever to determine if they are worth the hype.

Let's talk about the packaging. Gotta say, love the juxtaposition of the purple and the yellow McDonald's logo, it really pops and the BTS emblem works very well too. Somehow, we can't stop thinking about the meme depicting certain members of the band as fries.

Moving on to the nuggets... they are just regular nuggets in the four shapes they usually come in and they taste pretty much like any ordinary piece from a standard meal. Take it from us, spicy nuggets are way better.

Alright, the pièce de résistance that we've all been looking forward to for months: The exclusive cajun and sweet chili sauces. Again, we love the colour scheme – very cute and on-brand for BTS. Unfortunately, both of these sauces taste like something we can buy or make with ingredients we have at home.

The cajun sauce has an interesting yellow hue but it is no different from mustard mixed with mayonnaise. The sweet chili sauce tastes like a generic bottle of sweet Thai chili sauce that can be found at any grocery store. They aren't bad whatsoever but when BTS is involved, the bar is set really high. This meal unfortunately isn't quite it.

However, if you are a die-hard fan, it's worth snagging it just for the limited-edition packaging to add to your existing shrine of purple-hued memorabilia. But if you're not that into these boys, perhaps you should save your money, calories and time – this meme says it all.
