McDonald’s celebrated our favorite taste bud, Grimace, with his own meal that launched Monday, June 12. While we might not know a lot about the mysterious purple McDonald’s mascot (aside from the fact that he’s allegedly a taste bud and apparently a Gemini), we do have everything you should know about the Grimace McDonald’s Birthday meal.
In the past, McDonald’s has collaborated with artists like Cardi B and Offset, Cactus Plant, BTS, and more. Each of these meals was a limited-time release, and the Grimace Birthday Meal will be the same. You were able to pick up a Grimace Birthday Meal until July 9 or until supply ran out at your local McDonald’s restaurant.

The Grimace McDonald’s Birthday Meal included your choice of entree, fries, and a limited-edition Vanilla Berry shake.
The Grimace Birthday Meal came with your choice of Big Mac (regularly $5.39) or 10-Piece McNugget (priced at $4.99), Medium (normally $2.99) or Large ($3.99) Fries, and a Medium “Grimace Shake” ($3.89) that was Vanilla Berry-flavored.
The total cost of the Grimace Birthday Meal depended on your location. You were able to change the size of fries, but the size of the shake remained as a medium on all the Grimace Birthday Meals. Here were the different prices for each size:

- Large Big Mac Grimace Meal: : $12.69

- Small Grimace Shake: $3.39
