Fast food giant McDonald’s is giving away free menu items this holiday season! Beginning on Monday, December 14, customers will receive a free item with every purchase of $1 or more made through the McDonald’s app. As for the free menu items on offer? Each day, the chain will give away away fictional Christmas characters’ favorite foods — or at least foods McDonald’s thinks they would love.
The promotion features a different item each day, beginning with a double cheeseburger in honor of the Griswold family from “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.” Customers can also snag a McDouble for John McClane from “Die Hard,” medium fries for Rudolph, coffee for Scrooge and a McCafe item for Frank Costanza from “Seinfeld.”
The rapper’s meal dropped on Sept. 8, and combined three of Cactus Jack’s favorite items from the fast food chain: a Quarter Pounder® loaded with bacon and lettuce, French fries with BBQ sauce dip, and Sprite — for a total of $6. The special combo arrived with a commercial featuring the action figure version of La Flame, and it may have been the most hype McDonald’s commercial in history. The promotion was a big deal for McDonald’s, which last featured a celebrity name on the menu nearly three decades ago! In 1992, McDonald’s sold Michael Jordan’s “McJordan” Quarter Pounder for a limited time.
