McDonald’s spices up its menu with the return of fan favorite item

The weather is getting warmer, and so is the McDonald’s menu.

The chain has quietly brought back its Spicy Chicken McNuggets, which can already be found on the menus of participating establishments for a limited time.

“Spice-loving McDonald’s fans, you’re in luck because our Spicy Chicken McNuggets are returning to the menu in select local markets,” a McDonald’s U.S. spokesperson told TODAY.com.

To refresh your memory, Spicy Chicken McNuggets are a zesty remix of classic McNuggets, with chicken covered in a crispy tempura coating spiced with a blend of cayenne pepper and chili peppers. Customers can get the Spicy McNuggets in 4 pieces, 6 pieces, 10 pieces, 20 pieces or even 40 pieces.

McDonald’s says Spicy McNuggets will be available in, but not limited to, the following regions: San Francisco, Chicago, Miami, Philadelphia, New York and more (we’ve spotted them in Washington, DC, too).

The menu item, which was introduced for the first time In 2020, the first launch of a new McNugget product from McDonald’s since the original in 1983, was so popular that it quickly sold out in many locations. The chain then listened to calls on social media for the return of these spicy poultry products and brought them back in 2021, then 2022, then again in 2023.

Wendy’s launched its own spicy chicken nuggets in 2010, then removed them from the menu in 2017 — which prompted Burger King to launch its own version for a limited time — and finally brought them back for good in 2019.

When McDonald’s launched its spicy nuggets in 2020, Wendy’s couldn’t pass up the opportunity to poke fun at its rival.

“I had to pick up all the leftover BK and put the mcprice label on it,” Wendy’s tweeted at the time.

But news of the return of the Mickey D’s item was met with enthusiasm on social media.

“Spicy nuggets are back. It’s time to empty my entire bank account”, job a user

“LETS GOOO I MISS THIS,” one Instagram user commented.

“Why can’t they bring him back permanently?”…
