The random disappearance of Wendy’s spicy chicken nuggets was one of the more tragic moments in fast food history.
The nuggets were a clear fan favorite, and even Chance The Rapper felt the pain when they were discontinued.
Chance tweeted out Saturday, “Positive Affirmations for today: I WILL have a good day, I Will succeed today, Wendy’s WILL bring back spicy nuggets at some point please please Lord let it be today.”

Apparently Wendy’s is very much aware of our sentiments toward the spicy nuggets, and responded to Chance’s tweet, saying, “Y’all keep asking, so here’s your chance. The people in charge say if you guys can get our tweet (this one right here) to 2 Million likes, they will bring SPICY CHICKEN NUGGETS BACK.
Let’s freakin’ do this!”
Yes, the power was put in our hands, and with one 2 million likes achieved on the weekend tweet, Wendy’s will bring back its spicy nuggets.
Apparently, this whole time, all we needed was Chance The Rapper to speak up on the issue.
THIS IS NOT A DRILL!
Spicy Chicken Nuggets are coming back! Y’all are crazy!
That took like a day and a half! WHAT?!
We don’t know when yet, gotta figure it out, but soon, and ok, LOSING IT RIGHT NOW THIS IS AMAZING!!

That two million “like” mark actually positioned Wendy’s in the top 5 all-time, with the likes of Barack Obama, Ariana Grande, and Ellen Degeneres, who famously tweeted out a superstar-filled selfie at the Oscars, to the tune of 2.3 million likes.
At least on Twitter, Wendy’s has promised their return. Now we just have to wait for an official date and time.
We did it, y’all. Good job. And thanks, Chance.
