As far back as I can remember, which only goes as far as the mid-’80s, McDonald’s McNuggets have been a mainstay communal dish amongst my friends and family. The never-changing morsels of breaded chicken meat paired with a smorgasbord of dipping sauces always brought light to the paralyzing darkness in the pit of my stomach.
Never once did I ever think McDonald’s would change their McNugget in any capacity. Turns out, I was pretty wrong.
The fast-food chain just announced that they’ll be launching a new variation of their iconic Chicken McNuggets for the first time ever.
Dubbed the Spicy Chicken McNuggets, the new Golden Arches innovation is breaded with tempura batter seasoned with chili and cayenne powder.
Joining the new Chicken McNugget offering will be the brand’s first new dipping sauce flavor since 2017: Mighty Hot Sauce. McDonald’s Mighty Hot Sauce is made with a blend of crushed red pepper and spicy cheeses combined with savory garlic and just the tiniest hint of sweetness.
With all the hot new items added to the menu, McDonald’s is also adding a new McFlurry flavor to help balance out all the heat. The new Chips Ahoy! McFlurry features the chain’s famous soft serve topped with caramel and Chips Ahoy! Cookie pieces blended together.
Patrons can find the new items arriving on September 16 at participating McDonald’s locations.
