McDonald’s adds Spicy Chicken McNuggets and Chips Ahoy! McFlurry to its menu
The spice is right!
McDonald’s introduced several new items to its menu Tuesday — including Spicy Chicken McNuggets.
“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,” Linda VanGosen, the chain’s vice president of menu innovation, said in a statement.
“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.”
The spicy nuggets will feature a tempura breading that includes cayenne and chili peppers.
Also announced Monday is a Chips Ahoy! McFlurry featuring bits of the famed chocolate chip cookies in the McDonald’s ice cream treat, as well as a new Mighty Hot Sauce made up of crushed red peppers and spicy chilis.
The new foods will join the McDonald’s menu on Sept. 16 at participating locations and will be available for a limited time.
