But back to the menu, what can Macca’s aficionados expect? 

The ‘As Featured In Meals’ include 10 piece chicken mcnuggests, big mac, quarter pounder, or fillet o fish along with a medium or large fries and a medium or large soft drink. 

There is also a rebranded sweet ‘n’ sour sauce to accompany the chicken nuggets (it’s a match made in heaven if you ask us) to celebrate the upcoming launch of Marvel Studios’ Loki season two, which will premiere on October 6th on Disney+. 

Excitingly, by scanning the QR code on the sauce, fans will be able to get a sneak peak of the new season via a themed AR experience on Snapchat, unlocking custom content developed by Marvel Studios for McDonald’s fans, with new content available weekly.
