McDonald's introduces a $200 wedding package in Indonesia, featuring chicken sandwiches and nuggets. Meanwhile, the fast-food chain remains puzzled by the viral trend of Grimace-themed shakes on TikTok, without revealing their response.
McDonald's Launches $200 Wedding Package In Historic Menu Change
McDonald's, the world's largest fast-food chain, has announced that it is now providing a $200 wedding package for individuals who want the golden arches to cater their special day.
The wedding package includes 100 chicken sandwiches and 100 packs of four-piece chicken nuggets, according to a post on the company's Indonesian Instagram account.
“McD’ers, let’s make the wedding moment more memorable with the Wedding Mekdi package,” reads a post on the official McDonald’s Indonesian Instagram account. “Available various other exciting package options with a minimum order of 200 pcs.”
There are alternatives to chicken sandwiches and nuggets, according to Rizki Haryadi, the Indonesian corporate communication supervisor.
“There are other service options as well, where we can also provide food stalls at an additional cost,” Haryadi told the Sun.
“The wedding package is not for holding a wedding at a McD store, but only for food, such as catering with prices starting from $235, with a minimum purchase of 200 products.”
Even though it's only offered in Indonesia right now, the wedding package might come to the US.
The launch of Indonesia's brand-new wedding package follows years of revelations about weddings being performed inside fast food restaurants, according to the Sun, by a branch of the company in Hong Kong.
For an additional $127, the "Happiness Party" package's basic price of $382 includes everything from invitations to the venue, audio equipment, and food.
The announcement was hilarious to many people on social media.
“The new breakthrough is now an international restaurant brand entering into weddings,” joked one user.
“It’s crazy when you open a package like this, home catering automatically panics,” laughed a second person.
The Grimace shake, which was introduced by McDonald's to honor one of its mascots, recently became popular after numerous TikTokers managed to give it a gloomy twist.
The berry-infused beverage, which will be available on June 12, commemorates Grimace's birthday and, in the words of the fast-food chain, represents the "iconic color and sweetness" of the character.
According to KnowYourMeme, a user going by the handle @thefrazmaz posted a video the next day showing himself drinking the shake before panning to the maker appearing unconscious or possibly even dead on the floor with the purple liquid pooling close to his head.
Several social media-savvy teenagers competed to outdo each other as their videos quickly went viral.
Although McDonald's tweeted a picture of the hairy purple blob mascot acknowledging the trend, it is presently unknown how the fast-food giant is responding to the wacky videos or, quite honestly, why they started appearing in the first place.
