McDonald’s and BoxLunch Launch an Exclusive Collection Of Merchandise

McDonald’s has partnered up with pop culture retailer, BoxLunch, for its first-ever U.S. retail collaboration. The exclusive collection debuts on September 20 at BoxLunch stores and BoxLunch.com. Foodie fashion is the highlight here, covering all the bases from clothing, accessories, and collectibles.

The Golden Arches-themed items include t-shirts, sweatshirts, bags, enamel pins, and beauty products. What’s more, this all goes to a wonderful cause as BoxLunch has pledged to donate a meal to a person in need for every $10 spent in-store or online through their partnership with Feeding America.

As far as this collection goes with BoxLunch — I’m lovin’ it. The graphics trigger fond nostalgia, the bags carry a premium quality to it (pun intended), and the styles don’t stray into the typically cheesy restaurant merch category.

Check below for more detailed shots of the McDonald’s x BoxLunch collaborative collection:

McDonald’s is going for some of music’s biggest names when it comes to celebrity meal collabs. After teaming up with Travis Scott and J Balvin, the golden arched fast food empire is now getting the pop group BTS to join in the custom meal fun.

The K-Pop ensemble’s order, which will roll out globally, consists of a 10-piece Chicken McNuggets, a medium fries, medium Coke, and two types of dipping sauces: Sweet Chili and Cajun.

In the United States, sweet chili and Cajun flavors have never been available at McDonald’s locations before. Though they’re sure to be welcome additions to the chain’s lineup of spicy nuggets and sauces, especially with the longstanding popularity of spicy fried chicken.
