Eat This, Not That!
When McDonald's added a new spicy version of Chicken McNuggets to its menu, few were left indifferent. The Spicy Chicken McNuggets that came with a side of Mighty Hot Sauce were so popular, in fact, that you may have missed out on them completely—they were sold out a mere two weeks later.But as many were secretly hoping, McDonald's has heard its fans' prayers and decided to bring back the ultra-popular limited-time offer for a second round. The company just announced in a Tweet that the Spicy McNuggets would be available again on Feb. 1, hot sauce and all.

The news created a major hype on Twitter, with fans expressing overwhelming approval for the move.thank you so much, I'm going to spend my life savings on spicy chicken nuggets! woah— Eva | #PISSBESTIES 💿 (@EvasMellohi) January 25, 2021thank u for giving the world what we need— Kaleigh Boone (@kaleighb09) January 25, 2021The popularity of the temporary menu addition is partly due to the fact that this is the first time ever McDonald's has upgraded their iconic Chicken McNuggets with a new flavor profile."When we introduced Spicy Chicken McNuggets last year, it marked the first-ever McNugget flavor innovation since this iconic menu item was introduced in 1983," the company said in a press release.But it isn't just the nuggets people are excited about. In fact, the Mighty Hot Sauce may secretly be the real star of the show. According to the company, it is the chain's hottest available sauce and the first new dipping sauce introduced since 2017.As an added bonus, McDonald's will be running a sweet (or spicy?) nugget promotion from Feb. 2 to 6.
