(WFXR) — McDonald’s is bringing a spicy twist to a fan-favorite for a limited time.
The company announced they are adding Spicy Chicken McNuggets and Mighty Hot Sauce to the menu, but only for a limited time. The items will be available September 16 at participating restaurants nationwide.
The Spicy Chicken McNuggets will be breaded with a tempura coating made of both cayenne and chili peppers.
McDonald’s has also crafted Mighty Hot Sauce, which is a blend of crushed red peppers and spicy chilis. The new dipping sauce is both their first new sauce innovation since 2017 and the hottest one available at McDonald’s.
“This is the first time we’ve introduced a new flavor of our classic Chicken McNuggets in the U.S. since they came to menus in 1983,” said Linda VanGosen, Vice President of Menu Innovation. “As our customers have been asking for Spicy McNuggets for some time now, we couldn’t think of a better time to bring them to our menus. We can’t wait for McNuggets fans to get a taste of these new spicy options.”
