It’s been a whopping 40 years since McDonald’s has changed up the beloved McNugget. So, get ready folks, Spicy Chicken McNuggets will be landing in a McDonalds near you on September 16th.
McDonald’s released its big plans in a recent tweet:

Chicken is obviously a hot commodity these days. Remember when Popeye’s dropped their Chicken Sandwich? The fast-food chain saw a record 24% increase in sales … all from chicken.
In a recent press release, McDonald’s stated: “We know spice is in the eye of the beholder…or in this case, the taste buds. One person’s taste-bud-singeing swelter is another’s “you call that spicy?” That’s why we’re excited to announce a pair of menu innovations arriving at U.S. restaurants this fall to please our spice-seeking customers: Spicy Chicken McNuggets and Mighty Hot Sauce. Both will be available September 16 for a limited time at participating restaurants nationwide.”
But a new fast food launch wouldn’t be complete without some drama, and Wendy’s was ready to take a swing at McDonald’s.
Must have scraped up all of BKs leftovers and slapped mcprice tag on it. https://t.co/mVkvqAPvkH
