McDonald’s to launch new app exclusive item inspired by Japanese menu

McDonald’s is introducing a new sauce inspired by its popular Black Garlic Sauce sold in Japanese restaurants. The new Special Grade Garlic Sauce, with notes of garlic, soy sauce, and a slight tangy sweetness, will be available nationwide starting July 9. To try the sauce, customers must make an eligible purchase using the McDonald’s app.

To celebrate the new menu item and its Japanese inspiration, McDonald’s has partnered with the anime series “Jujutsu Kaisen.” This show tells the story of Yuji Itadori, a boy with extraordinary physical strength, who, in an attempt to save a classmate, takes a curse into his own soul and is admitted to Tokyo Jujutsu High School, guided by the most powerful sorcerer, Satoru Gojo.

The Special Grade Garlic Sauce packaging will feature eight unique lid designs starring characters from “Jujutsu Kaisen.” Each purchase of the new sauce unlocks a free 30-day trial of Crunchyroll, a massive anime and manga streaming platform, where full episodes of “Jujutsu Kaisen” are available for streaming.

Customers can enjoy the Special Grade Garlic Sauce for free with any order of Chicken McNuggets or pair it with their favorite McDonald’s items on the app to create a meal fit for any sorcerer. The sauces will be available for a limited time while supplies last, and the streaming offer comes with its own set of terms.
