McDonald’s has officially brought back the long-awaited Spicy McNuggets starting February 1. The company announced the good news on Monday afternoon of this week. The announcement was followed by the return of the “Mighty Hot Sauce” that compliments the nuggets so well.
Why did McDonald’s bring back the delicious meal? The fast-food reports in a statement that spicy McNuggets are back by popular demand. McDonald reports tens of thousands of tweets requesting the return of the coveted dish. McDonald’s also prides itself by operating from the “good things come to those who ask politely” policy.
The fast-food joint first announced their spicy McNuggets last fall in 2020. This was the first time that the company has ever released a flavored edition of the well-known nugget. The Vice President of McDonald’s, Linda VanGosen, is very proud and excited about the release. She says, “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.”
The first McNuggets made their official debut over 40 years ago in 1983. However, Mcdonald’s switched it up and began using a meat mixture instead of dark meat. Because of changing times and tastebuds, the Spicy McNuggets are now made with 100% white meat.
While the spice added into the recipe changes the taste, it’s clear to McDonald’s patrons that the new Spicy McNugget is a new spin on an old classic. The new nuggets also come with their own personal dipping sauce called the Mighty Hot Sauce. This dipping sauce is a combination of delicious crushed red peppers and spicy chilis. It is also the first signature dipping sauce the restaurant since 2017.
McDonald’s patrons all over the world will celebrate the new release of the spicy chicken McNugget.
