Football enthusiasts can kick off the World Cup season with two new burgers, snacks and limited-time football socks from McDonald’s starting Nov 24.

The Hawaiian Grilled Chicken Burger, Smoky BBQ Chicken Burger, Potato Pops and McDonald’s Football Socks are included in the lineup of new products.

Those who enjoyed the Brownie Mcflurry and Hershey’s Chocolate Frappé can also look forward to the return of these treats on McDonald’s menu.

Pineapple lovers may find the Hawaiian Grilled Chicken Burger ($9.90) right up their alley, as the burger includes grilled pineapple on top of chicken ham and a chicken patty topped with spicy mayonnaise between the sesame buns.

If you prefer a bit more crunch in your burgers, there’s the Smoky BBQ Chicken Burger ($9.90) made with a crispy chicken ham patty, chicken bacon, cheese, tomatoes, smoky BBQ chipotle sauce and new dark malt buns.

If you’re looking for a snack, McDonald’s new Potato Pops can be purchased at $4.20, while the Hershey’s Chocolate Frappé is available at $4.75 for a small cup or $5.15 for medium size.

Fans can also take this opportunity to grab their own pair of exclusive McDonald’s football socks.

McDonald’s, an Official Sponsor of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, will also run a campaign titled “Wanna go to McDonald’s?” from Nov 24 to Dec 28 starring local referee Muhammad Taqi Aljaafari Bin Jahari.

Selected as a FIFAvideo assistant referee for the World Cup, he is the only referee from Singapore and all of ASEAN headed to Qatar. The 36-year-old will be featured alongside global celebrities ITZY and Khaby Lame in a new McDonald’s commercial during the World Cup season.
