Forget salt-and-pepper diamonds — McDonald’s latest seasonal special might just steal your heart instead.
Ahead of International Fried Chicken Day (July 6) next week, you can order the fast-food giant’s latest spin on its classic McCrispy Spicy from June 30. Enter the Chicken McCrispy Salt & Pepper.
And the best part (or worst, depending on your proclivities): It’s not spicy, so the chilli-averse can join in the fun, too.
The roll-out of McCrispy Salt & Pepper marks the first time McDonald’s Singapore has put out a non-fiery variant of its fried chicken since it became a permanent addition to the menu here in 2021.
The usual spicy version will still be available during this promotional period.
The latest McCrispy promises juicy, tender meat, encased in a golden-brown coat of salt and pepper as well as parsley flakes.
Accompanying this savoury treat is a brand-new Grapefruit McFizz drink (from $3.20) — which is not to be mistaken for the Pink Grapefruit McFizz version that you might recall circa 2015.
Solo diners can order the two-piece McCrispy Salt & Pepper meal (from S$6.60) comprising a thigh and a drumstick, as well as the usual medium fries and small Coke.
For sharing (or a larger meal), there’s the six-piece bucket option (from S$18.30) of three thighs and three drumsticks.
If you’re planning to make a day of it, go for the McWings (from S$2.85 for two pieces) — a McDonald’s mainstay of fried midjoints and drumlets — and end your meal with a banana pie (from S$1.40).
Find the McCrispy Salt & Pepper and Grapefruit McFizz after breakfast hours at most McDonald’s stores starting June 30 for a limited time only.
