Starting today and running through May 22nd, Nintendo is teaming up with McDonald’s to promote the release of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for the Switch with a series of eight Happy Meal toys. The lineup includes Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Bowser, Yoshi, Invincible Mario, a Red Koopa Shell, and a 1-Up Mushroom—each with its own special function (the translucent Mario lights up in different colors for example). You can even win a Nintendo Switch Mario Kart bundle. [click to continue…]

Ronald McDonald and Pennywise are the real standouts.

The surprise April Fools season 3 premiere of Rick and Morty took the Internet by storm, and now McDonald’s Szechuan McNugget Sauce might be coming back. If you haven’t seen the episode, you should know that these two things are related. Now, I don’t want to spoil the episode for you but… seriously…if you are able to eat McDonald’s Szechuan McNugget Sauce in the near future, you have Rick and Morty to thank. [click to continue…]

McDonald’s has a reputation of serving some of the best fountain Coca-Cola around, and now we know the reason. [click to continue…]

One would have thought that the humble drinking straw had peaked in terms of innovation—but McDonald’s wasn’t satisfied. They sought a solution that would deliver optimal chocolate and mint flavor to customers enjoying their new Chocolate Shamrock Shake. To accomplish this herculean task, they employed a team of crack aerospace engineers to put their considerable skills to the ultimate test. [click to continue…]

McDonald’s is calling it a “Big Mac ATM” but, whatever you call it, the bottom line is that a real machine that’s dedicated to dispensing the Big Mac, Mac Jr, and Grand Mac spent an afternoon delivering free burgers in Boston yesterday. [click to continue…]

You may have heard that McDonald’s recently gave away 10,000 bottles of Big Mac Special Sauce as part of an in-store promotion. Naturally, this freebie promotion has turned out to be little more than than a source of revenue for eBay sellers. Currently, many of the bottles are hovering around $100-$150, with one ballsy individual trying to move bottle number #6104 for $50,000. I mean, it’s not even #1! We know from past experience that a collectible like that can actually sell for over $15K.

Big Mac sauce is little more than thousand island dressing people! Don’t be fooled!

Once again, tasty treats that would sell like crazy in the US are being sold elsewhere. This time it’s McDonald’s launching an entire Oreo McCafe menu in Hong Kong. The list of stuff that we probably won’t be tasting any time soon includes Oreo Tiramisu, Oreo Tiramisu Latte, Iced Oreoccino and a Chocolate Cheese Tart that Brand Eating describes as “a baked Oreo tart shell filled with melted chocolate and cream cheese”.

It will be available for a limited time in Hong Kong, but here’s hoping that Oreo learns something from the Oreo Creme Egg situation and brings this menu to the states.

It appears that some Eastern countries have been enjoying spectacular Super Mario toys in their Happy Meals (again)—and there’s reason to hope that they might come to the U.S. [click to continue…]
