BTS has been a popular global band and earned accolades internationally when its single Dynamite was nominated for Grammy awards. However, this is not the first time BTS has been approached by any international food chain. Recently Baskin Robins Korea branch had launched BTS7 cake in July 2020. But the cake that had seven flavors, representing members of BTS, was criticized as overpriced and bland in appearance.
Baskin Robbins took this into consideration and tried to justify its actions by saying that the cake was completely hand-made. But when fans continued to express their disappointment, it released another set of cake by the name Bora Bora, multi-flavored and colored cake featuring BTS. This too was available for a limited period but had become a hit among the ARMY [BTS fans].
Currently netizens are having a field day expressing their emotions about the BTS Meal. Fans expressed concern that on May 26, when the BTS Meal will be introduced in the U.S. the McDonalds stores are surely going to run out of stock.
