McDonald’s USA has chosen American rapper Saweetie as its new celebrity partner for the chain’s "Famous Orders" program.
Starting on Monday, Aug. 9, customers will be able to purchase The Saweetie Meal nationwide, which includes a Big Mac, a 4-piece serving of chicken nuggets, a medium-sized order of French fries and Sprite.
The meal also includes McDonald’s Tangy BBQ and Sweet ‘N Sour sauces. The latter will be temporarily named the "Saweetie ‘N Sour" sauce for this limited-time promotion.
MCDONALD'S TRAVIS SCOTT PARTNERSHIP POPULARITY IS LEADING TO INGREDIENT SHORTAGES ACROSS THE COUNTRY
McDonald’s and Saweetie first teased their collaboration on July 29, 2021, with social media posts.
"We’re thrilled to team up with Saweetie, a true brand fan who puts her own spin on everything she touches across music, fashion, beauty and culture," said McDonald’s USA’s Morgan Flatley, the chain’s chief marketing and digital customer experience officer, at the time.
In a press release, McDonald’s noted that the 28-year-old rapper’s signature meal comes with a digital food remix guide that shows a Big Mac can be enhanced with fries, chicken nuggets can be turned into a sandwich and burger patties can be used in place of buns – all of which are food hacks Saweetie reportedly uses in her everyday life.
