BRB, planning out my McDonald’s trips so I can get every item on the Mariah Carey Christmas menu
Mariah Carey, the Official Queen of Christmas™ has already given us one holiday gift this year: Her annual video, released on the day after Halloween, announcing that Spooky Season had ended and Christmas Season had arrived. But she’s not stopping there. Miss Mariah has more holiday joy up her sleeve this year, and we can’t wait for every delicious bit of it: Carey is releasing a Christmas McDonald’s menu that will include all of her favorite McD’s items for free. Merry Christmas indeed.
Carey is a longtime fan of the Golden Arches, so of course she teamed up with them to develop the “Mariah Menu” just in time for Christmas. It will be available starting Dec. 13 and will run for 12 days, with each day having a different one of Carey’s fave items available for free along with any $1 purchase on the McDonald’s app.
Some of those items include Chicken McNuggets, an Apple Pie, hotcakes, chocolate chip cookies, and, of course, the classic Big Mac.
What makes this collab even sweeter is the reason behind Carey’s longtime love for McDonald’s: All the memories she’s made there with her family.
“Some of my favorite memories with my kids are our family trips to McDonald’s, and of course, each of us has our go-to order. Mine is the Cheeseburger, and I get it with extra pickles,” she said. “Bringing together some of our favorite food from McDonald’s with my all-time favorite season is a holiday wish come true.”
All the items on the Mariah Menu will come in festive, holiday-themed packaging that’s “inspired by Mariah’s love for the holidays,” McDonald’s said. That alone makes it worth hitting the drive-through. Move over, Starbucks holiday cups — there’s a new festive fast food tradition in town.
Carey is just the latest celebrity to collaborate with McDonald’s for its Famous Orders campaign, which has also featured rapper Saweetie, with her “Saweetie ‘N Sour” sauce, and K-pop group BTS, who marketed their BTS Meal at McDonald’s locations in more than 50 countries.
The Mariah Menu will be available at McDonald’s across the U.S., from Dec. 13 all the way up until Christmas Eve.
