In September 2020, Travis Scott and McDonald's would collaborate to create the "Travis Scott Meal." The $6 combo meal would feature a Quarter Pounder with cheese, bacon, lettuce, pickles ketchup and mustard served with a side of french fries, barbecue sauce and a large Sprite.

While this collaboration came to an unfortunate end, we took it upon ourselves to recreate the Travis Scott burger so we could all taste a little bit of what we've lost.

Was it All Hype?


I don't think anyone can deny that "hype" was a large component of what made this collaboration so successful.

Prior to the Travis Scott meal's creation, you could easily ask a McDonald's cashier for everything in the meal and they would put it together for you without hesitation.

"Yes, give me a quarter pounder with bacon and lettuce. You know what, let's make it a meal. Give me a large sprite and fry. Do you guys have any barbecue sauce? Awesome, put that on the side"

The only real difference being that the Travis Scott meal came at a convenient discount.

Hype or not, we believe there was some merit to the organization of this meal.

-Adding lettuce to the quarter pounder gave it some much needed texture.

-Bacon is rarely a bad idea on a burger.

-Sprite is the 6th most popular soft drink in the US

-BBQ sauce adds a sweet tang to balance the salt of the french fries.

It wasn't rocket science but we've got to hand it to em, we loved it.
