McDonald’s has teamed up with Saweetie for a promotional month – and dare we say – we are loving it? The collaboration started on Monday – Aug 9. The Mcdonald’s goers could purchase The Saweetie Meal nationwide. What will the mean entail? Well, the Saweetie Mean consists of a Big Mac, 4-pieces of chicken nuggets, a medium-sized serving of French fries, and Sprite. Along with that, it also includes Tangy BBW and Sweet N Sour sauces. They also renamed their Sweet N Sour sauce for the promotion, which they are now calling – “Saweetie’ N Sour” sauce.
What Else Can One Expect?
McDonald’s Morgan Flatley said that the brand is thrilled to partner with Saweetie – complimenting her for putting her own spin on everything she touches.
True to the fashion – the promotion is not limited to the meal-offering – it will also have a digital food remix guide. The guide will show how you can mix around food, for example: how a Big Mac can be further enhanced with fries, how chicken nuggets can be eaten as a sandwich with patties from burger can be used as a bun, and more. What’s more, these food hacks are Saweetie’s very own creations that she uses every day in her life.
Flatey also added that Saweetie celebrates her love for food by bringing in spark and creativity in her signature orders.
Even Saweetie talked about the brand, in a statement given to the press, she talks about her fond memories of the brand from her childhood days.
