The McDonald’s x BTS meal was release in Malaysia yesterday (26 May) and it was anticipated by Malaysians especially the fans of the BTS group.
Many had gathered at the nearest McDonald’s store to get their hands on the meal box as soon as it is for sale, even though it was not encouraged to do so given that Malaysia is currently facing a surge in Covid-19 cases.
Taking into consideration of the safety of their diners, McDonald’s had released a statement that they support delivery for the meal starting 10 a.m.
Even so, the McDonald’s official website wasn’t spared by fans who hit on the website so frequently that the website almost went paralyzed. All these were just to grab a set of BTS meal only!
The McDonald’s x BTS meal is reported to consist of a box of 10 pieces of Chicken Nuggets, a cup of Coke, medium size french fries and the favourite sauces of the BTS members, the Sweet Chili and Cajun sauce. This meal box costs RM15.70 and if you purchase it through the McDelivery, it will cost you RM17.83, which is excluding freight and service tax.
Soon after the meal box went on sale, some netizens listed empty boxes from the BTS set meal on Shopee. While the set meal cost you only RM15.70, the listed empty BTS set meal boxes is priced at RM19.90!
Not to mention that that the set is just empty boxes, the netizen threw in unopened sweet chili and cajun sause, with a free BTS poster. Well, if you think that this is absurd, some may think that it’s worth for the collection.
Despite that, McDonald’s Malaysia had made it clear that the BTS Meal will be available at all branches in Malaysia and they have enough for all who are interested in the BTS set meal.
