Fans Rejoice After McDonald's Brings Back Fan-Favorite Menu Item

Get ready to spice up your regular order.

One of McDonald's most popular items has reportedly returned, and fans couldn't be more excited about it.

Ahead of the upcoming summer season, Spicy Chicken McNuggets are back on (or headed to) McDonald's menus nationwide–a move fans have long awaited, even after petitioning for the item to be added to menus permanently.

While McDonald's hasn't confirmed the hot news, the food Instagram account Snackolator–which has grown a following by accurately debuting major fast-food and snack brand launches ahead of any official announcements–reported the return of the spicy chicken nuggets yesterday.

Customers have also shared statements on social media validating Snackolator's predictions and celebrating the news that Spicy Chicken McNuggets are back.

The Spicy Chicken McNuggets first debuted in 2020 to grand applause, fans loved the crispy breaded coating that's spiced with a blend of aged cayenne and chili pepper so much that McDonald's sold out of the product in just a few weeks. The chicken nuggets didn't return to the beloved burger joint for another year when they briefly returned in 2021, followed by another hiatus and limited-edition run in 2022.

While McDonald's hasn't officially listed the returning item to its online menu, it did confirm that its fan-favorite Big Mac sauce is coming to stores in a dip cup for those that need extra dressing or want to dip their fries or chicken nuggets.

The company announced that "extra sides" of Mac sauce would officially be available at no extra cost when purchased with any size chicken nugget for a limited time beginning April 27.
