McDonald’s will release a new app-exclusive item inspired by Japanese menu

McDonald’s will be launching a new sauce inspired by a similar product it serves in its Japanese outlets.

According to a McDonald’s representative, the new special garlic sauce features “notes of garlic and soy sauce, balanced with a slight tangy sweetness.”

The sauce is inspired by the fast-food giant’s popular black garlic sauce, which is sold in McDonald’s outlets in Japan.

The sauce will be available nationwide on July 9, and you won’t have to go all the way to Japan to try it, but you will need to make a valid purchase through the McDonald’s app.

To celebrate the new menu and its Japanese inspiration, McDonald’s has partnered with the popular anime series “Jujutsu Kaisen.”

Yuji Itadori, described in the show as “a boy with tremendous physical strength,” leads a typical high school existence.

“One day, to save a classmate who has been attacked by curses, he eats the finger of Ryomen Sukuna, taking the curse into his own soul. From then on, he shares one body with Ryomen Sukuna. Guided by the most powerful of sorcerers, Satoru Gojo, Itadori is admitted to Tokyo Jujutsu High School,” the series description reads.

Sauce packaging features eight unique lid designs featuring characters from the hit series, and every purchase of a new Special Grade Garlic Sauce unlocks a 30-day free trial of Crunchyroll, the giant anime and manga streaming platform. All episodes of Jujutsu Kaisen are available to stream on Crunchyroll.

“Grab the Special Grade Garlic Sauce for free with any order of Chicken McNuggets, or pair it with your go-to order on the McDonald’s App to make a meal fit for any sorcerer,” McDonald’s announced in a news release.

The sauce is available for a limited time only, while supplies last. Streaming offers are subject to their own terms and conditions.
