Fans of McDonald’s McPepper burger might have noticed the item’s disappearance from the fast food chain’s menu last September, within less than a month after its launch. There’s good news if you’re missing the black pepper burg: it’s now back on McDonald’s menu, from September 2022!
A member of the team first spotted a sign outside McDonald’s Bedok Mall branch showcasing the McPepper burger with what looks like a Pokémon burger box.

McDonald’s has confirmed that the McPepper is wrapped in Charizard packaging, the Pulut Hitam Pie in Eevee packaging, and Teh C Frappé, in Pikachu or Scorbunny packaging.

Each McPepper comes with two beef patties glazed in a sweet and spicy black pepper sauce, topped with onions. Everything is held between McDonald’s signature burger buns. When it was launched last year, it was available as a $5 Extra Value Meal, which came with fries and a drink.
On top of the comeback of the McPepper burger, Pokémon enthusiasts can also look forward to the Pulut Hitam Pie ($1.70) and Teh C Frappé (from $4.50) served in exclusive Pokémon packaging. The former features crispy pastry encasing a creamy purple rice and coconut cream filling, and the latter is a refreshing ice-blended milk tea drink.
