McDonald’s is rumored to celebrate our favorite taste bud, Grimace, with his own meal beginning 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 the information 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 we can expect the Grimace Birthday Meal to be the same.

We’ve reached out to McDonald’s for comment but have yet to receive a response.

The Grimace McDonald’s Birthday Meal will include your choice of entree, fries, and a limited-edition shake.

The Grimace Birthday Meal will come with your choice of Big Mac (regularly $5.39) or 10-Piece McNugget (priced at $4.99), Medium Fries (normally $2.99), and a Medium “Grimace Shake” (estimated to be $3.89). They haven’t released a price yet, but we expect at least a 15% discount based on previous McDonald’s meals.

According to our sources, McDonald’s should be dropping this meal on June 12, and will be available for a limited time. We’ll be sure to update here if there are any changes.

According to multiple sources, the Grimace Shake is going to be a vanilla-flavored shake that is dyed purple. However, this information has not been confirmed by McDonald’s.

Here are the prices we can expect to get for the shake:

  • Small Grimace Shake: $3.39
  • Medium Grimace Shake: $3.89
  • Large Grimace Shake: $4.69


Be prepared for even more McDonald’s deals this summer.

McDonald’s hasn’t announced their summer deals yet, but for the last two years they’ve run a month of deals through the app. Last year, they had Camp McDonald’s deals every day in the month of July.

These deals included free Happy Meals, free McNuggets, discounted Big Macs, and even exclusive McDonald’s merch drops. We expect similar deals to be offered sometime soon.

Important to note: these deals were exclusive to the McDonald’s app.



Always check the McDonald’s Rewards app for the best McDonald’s coupons.
