We know spice is in the eye of the beholder…or in this case, the taste buds. This September McDonald’s restaurants across the country will be hosting a new limited-time spicy menu item.
“We’re excited to announce a pair of menu innovations arriving to U.S. restaurants this fall to please our spice-seeking customers: Spicy Chicken McNuggets and Mighty Hot Sauce. Both will be available Sept 16 for a limited time at participating restaurants nationwide,” the company said in a statement.
McDonald’s Paris has already confirmed the spicy Mcnuggets, but the Bonham restaurant is still awaiting confirmation if it will be added to the menu.
The company said they’ve crafted their new Mighty Hot Sauce for those who care to dial up the heat, boasting a powerful 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 Vice President of Menu Innovation, Linda VanGosen. “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.”
To cool down after a warming treat, stores will also be introducing the new Chips Ahoy!® McFlurry®. This delicious treat features vanilla soft-serve, caramel topping, and Chips Ahoy!® cookie pieces blended throughout. Unfortunately, both Paris and Bonham can’t confirm just yet if it will be added, so Chips Ahoy lovers will have to wait until Sept 16.
“We’re always listening to our customers and are thrilled to bring them delicious twists on two beloved classics this September with the release of our Spicy Chicken McNuggets with Mighty Hot Sauce and Chips Ahoy!® McFlurry®, all available through Drive Thru and McDelivery,” said VanGosen.
