New Jeans x McDonald’s Meal Collab

The new South Korean girl group NewJeans is highly popular all over the world. This successful teen K-Pop group’s songs have been dominating the music chart since they debuted 12 months ago. So who is NewJeans? This South Korean girl group is from the music label ADOR and their lineup consists of five members, namely Minji, Hanni, Danielle, Haerin, and Hyein.

NewJeans have been coming out with danceable beats that are borrowed from hip-hop and R&B, while their outfits are following the Y2K trend. NewJeans brings a fresh vibe to this nostalgic trend.  Following in the success of BTS meal collaboration with McDonald’s, NewJeans has also partnered with McDonald’s to introduce special packaging for an exclusive chicken menu. OMG!

For Malaysia, there are three new menu items that are available for a limited time only: Spicy Crispy Chicken Burger (RM9.95), Seaweed McShaker Fries, and Spicy Crispy Chicken Wrap (RM10.90) that you can get with hashbrowns (RM12.55). This was released on 7th September 2023. Not sure if they are still available now.

On the special packaging for the meals and drinks, McDonald’s iconic “M” logo in yellow is interspersed with the adorable pixel-style artwork of fries, burgers, and NewJeans’ signature bunny mascot to commemorate the collab.

As missy is a big fan of NewJeans, it is only natural that she wanted to get her hands on the packaging. As she was still at her dorm when the collab was released, she ordered McDonald’s grab delivery for lunch. Alas, she did not get the NewJeans x McDonald’s packaging because she did not know that she has to order the special menu. She was a bit disappointed and since hubs and I went to pick her up that evening, we decided to head to the nearest McDonald’s for dinner.

Missy was happy to see this huge poster of her favourite K-pop band and quickly took a photo with it.

Since we ate-in, we thought that we could get the NewJeans packaging but again there was none. So I requested from the McDonald’s staff to please give us the paper bag and paper cup as that was the 2nd time we (missy) had McD’s but did not get the NewJeans packaging.  Missy was too shy to ask from the staff so the mom got to step in. The accommodating staff gave us these.

Aren’t they cute?

So where are these items now? Sitting on missy’s table gathering dust.
