The Mariah Menu debuts at participating McDonald’s restaurants on Dec. 13.

“Every single day for 12 straight, we’re gifting you a free menu item from The Mariah Menu, exclusively on the McDonald’s app when you spend a dollar or more,” Carey said in a video announcing the partnership. “We’ve made a list of the food both you and I love, and checked it twice, so save the date.”


The free food deals are available once per person each day from Dec. 13 to Dec. 24. More details about the menu will be available on the McDonald’s app.

“Some of my favorite memories with my kids are our family trips to McDonald’s, and of course, each of us has our go-to order. Mine is the Cheeseburger, and I get it with extra pickles,” Carey said Wednesday in a statement. “Bringing together some of our favorite food from McDonald’s with my all-time favorite season is a holiday wish come true.”

The celebrity collaboration is the latest announced by McDonald’s. The restaurant chain previously featured limited-time meals in partnership with rapper Saweetie, K-pop band BTS and Colombian singer J Balvin, according to USA Today.

In a statement, Jennifer Healan vice president of U.S. marketing, brand content and engagement for McDonald’s USA said, “Mariah goes with holidays like ketchup and fries, so we couldn’t think of a better partner to help us celebrate the upcoming season.”
