Things are getting spicy in the McDonald’s kitchen.
The fast-food chain announced that it would soon be offering Spicy Chicken McNuggets, the first new flavor of the small chunks of chicken in the U.S. since they were introduced in 1983.
“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,” Vice President of Menu Innovation, Linda VanGosen said.
In addition to the new nugget flavor, there will be a unique dipping sauce if you want to turn up the heat, Mickey D’s is also offering a Mighty Hot Sauce.
After all of that heat, you’ll also be able to cool down with their new Chips Ahoy!® McFlurry®.
The new menu items will be available on September 16.
