The biggest launch of 2021, coming at you from McDonald’s, is just a click away. 

Starting February 18 at noon ET, McDonald’s will give fans access to an early taste of the new Crispy Chicken Sandwich with a limited-edition capsule, available exclusively at CHKNDrop.com.

The hottest new chicken sandwich in the game features a brand-new crispy, juicy, tender fillet made with all-white meat chicken. It will be served up three ways – Crispy, Spicy and Deluxe – and featuring mouthwatering ingredients like a toasted, buttered potato roll, crinkle cut pickles and our Spicy Pepper Sauce.

– A never-before-heard audio track created by super music producer Tay Keith on 7” vinyl. Created for the new Crispy Chicken Sandwich, and debuting soon in McDonald’s advertising, you can hear it here first and only get a copy with this drop.

– A limited-edition hoodie that reps the deliciousness of the new Crispy Chicken Sandwich in one word “crispyjuicytender” and features a waveform design of Tay Keith’s original track running up one sleeve. Available in sizes S through XXL.

“We know fans can’t wait for our new Crispy Chicken Sandwich to hit restaurants, so we’re celebrating them and this moment with a drop like no other,” said VP of U.S. Communications, David Tovar. “We’re excited to give fans early access to this sandwich and exclusive swag they can’t get anywhere else to memorialize this great addition to our menu.”

Those lucky enough to secure one can get their early taste of the Crispy Chicken Sandwich at their local participating McDonald’s starting February 23. Don’t wait, because once they’re gone, they’re gone.

While this exclusive drop will go quick, you can grab the Crispy Chicken Sandwich that inspired it all starting February 24 via carry-out, Drive Thru, the McDonald’s app or McDelivery.

McDonald’s Celebrating Pokémon’s 25th Anniversary With Happy Meal Pokémon Trading Card Game Promotion

Starting this week, McDonald’s and The Pokémon Company are celebrating Pokémon’s 25th anniversary! It’s time to catch ‘em all in McDonald’s Happy Meals as Pikachu and all starter Pokémon across eight generations are appearing in Pokémon Trading Card Game form. 

In a statement from McDonald’s:

“This year we’re helping fans celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Pokémon with a special Happy Meal promotion. Starting Tuesday, Feb. 9, customers across the country can begin collecting Pokémon cards at participating McDonald’s restaurants while supplies last. There are 25 exclusive trading cards to discover, and for the first time ever customers will receive four cards with each Happy Meal purchase. We’re excited to continue serving up new ways for families to have fun together with our latest Happy Meal promotion.”

According to the announcement on Pokémon.com:

“Each of these packs includes four exclusive cards. You’ll have the opportunity to collect cards featuring all 24 first partner Pokémon from the many regions in the Pokémon world, plus Pikachu. There are standard and foil versions of each card, and all the cards sport the Pokémon 25th logo. In total, there are 50 cards in this set, so have fun collecting and trading with your friends.”

Along with these card packs, you’ll also find one of two sticker activity sets, a Pokémon TCG display frame, or a Pokémon TCG holder box in each Happy Meal. All will be contained in a Pikachu envelope (they’re numbered 1 through 4 and feature different artwork of the popular Pokémon). 

Some locations will allow you to purchase the “toy pack” without ordering a Happy Meal, but “your mileage may vary” at each location (including the possibility of limits). 

There’s more fun online via McDonald’s dedicated Happy Meal site! Free to download activity sheets and previews of the Pokémon activity games found in the Happy Meal app are shown. 

A full set of cards recently sold on eBay for $9,100 so collectors are buying multiple Happy Meals with the goal of completing the set for tremendous profit!

Shave The Date: McDonald’s Is Giving Away 10,000 Free McRib Sandwiches To Fans Who Shave Their Facial Hair

The sauciest moment of the year is here! The McRib is back nationwide for the first time since 2012, beginning Dec. 2. So that beard you’ve so proudly grown while in quarantine or for a good cause this November…it’s got to go. Or it could get in the way of you enjoying a mouthwatering McRib. That’s why we’re here to tell you to shave it, and you could get a McRib on us.

That’s right. Starting today, we’re giving away a FREE McRib to the first 10,000 entries from fans who show us their clean-shaven face. Beard or no beard, prepare for the McRib with a shave—or even a facial mask—because anyone can participate, from your brother to your mother, sister-in-law or cousin’s roommate. Just post a picture of your cleanly-shaven or baby-smooth face on your public Twitter or public Instagram profile using #Shave4McRibSweepstakes and tag @mcdonalds. Sorry, no Stories! The first 10,000 entries will receive a code for a free McRib, available via McDelivery with Uber Eats, while supplies last.

“Our bearded fans know… facial hair and the McRib just don’t mix—believe me, I’ve tried,” said Vice President of U.S. Communications, David Tovar. “With the nationwide return of the McRib, we’re helping fans enjoy every delectable moment by encouraging them to shave for a chance to win a free McRib. And we’re excited this year to partner with No-Shave November, a charity that knows a thing or two about facial hair.”

In recognition of those who’ve grown a little scruff for a cause this month, we’re collaborating with No-Shave November —a non-profit organization devoted to fundraising for cancer research, prevention, and education—for some added good. Just buy a McRib on Dec. 2 and your purchase will help support our donation to the charity’s cancer initiatives.

“No-Shave November is a month-long journey where we ask participants to put down their razors and ‘get hairy’ in the name of cancer awareness,” said Senior Executive Director of No-Shave November, Monica Hill. “We’re thrilled McDonald’s is supporting this important cause, getting both the bearded and the non-bearded involved beyond November simply by purchasing a McRib.”

Whether you’re a McRib fanatic or first-timer, get ready to clean up that facial hair and shave the date for the nationwide return. The season begins December 2 at participating restaurants via carry-out, Drive Thru, the McDonald’s app or McDelivery. It’s going to be a saucy one.
