McDonald’s launched the new Saweetie Meal with a side of “Saweetie ‘N Sour” sauce Monday.
The fast-food chain’s latest celebrity menu collaboration – its first with a female musician – will be available for a limited time at participating restaurants nationwide. It includes a Big Mac, four-piece Chicken McNuggets, medium fries, medium Sprite, Tangy BBQ Sauce and a renamed Sweet ‘N Sour sauce.
“McDonald’s and I run deep – from growing up back in Hayward, California, all through my college days – so I had to bring my icy gang in on my all-time favorites,” Saweetie said in a statement last month when announcing the Aug. 9 launch. “Depending on the mood I’m in, there are so many ways to enjoy my order.”
The “Best Friend” rapper’s real name is Diamonté Harper and her first hit single was “Icy Grl.”
McDonald’s said the meal will be served in “icy new packaging inspired by her own style.”
The meal will be available to order in restaurants, the drive-thru, with McDelivery and on the McDonald’s app using contactless mobile order and pay.
McDonald’s said the meal’s price will vary based on location.
Before the collaboration with Scott last fall, the chain hasn’t had a celebrity meal or “McDonald’s Famous Order” in nearly 30 years when it partnered with Michael Jordan in 1992 for the McJordan. Scott’s meal led to shortages of key ingredients across the nation.
In October, McDonald’s had the J Balvin Meal with the award-winning reggaeton artist and the BTS Meal was available globally this summer.
McDonald’s is requiring masks again for customers and employees in areas with high COVID transmission.
