This McDonald's Cult Favorite Menu Item Is Finally Coming Back

McDonald's is bringing the heat in a major way thanks to the return of a fan-favorite item. Spicy Chicken McNuggets are back on the menu for a limited time.

The on-again, off-again item debuted in 2020 and has more kick than McDonald's regular Chicken McNuggets. Its crispy coating is seasoned with a signature blend of aged cayenne and chili pepper. And the best part is you might just be able to get your hands on an order of the spicy nuggets as soon as today, if your local McDonald's is carrying them.

According to @snackolator, an Instagram account that was one of the first to share the news, the Spicy Chicken McNuggets began popping up at participating restaurants on Monday, March 25. McDonald's has confirmed that the popular menu item will be available in San Francisco, Chicago, Miami, Philadelphia, New York City, and other cities.

Several users on Instagram pointed out that McDonald's new Savory Chili WcDonald's Sauce would pair perfectly with the spicy nuggets. Only thing is, the sauce is also a limited-time release.

"Too bad the chili sauce is starting to roll out as these roll in lol," said one person.

Given the popularity of the Spicy Chicken McNuggets, fans have demanded that they become a permanent menu item.

"This is turning into McDonald's version of the Nacho Fries. Just make it permanent already," read one comment.

For McDonald's customers, this has been a rather exciting week of announcements. In addition to the return of the Spicy Chicken McNuggets, the restaurant recently announced that after a successful test run, Krispy Kreme doughnuts will soon be available at more Mickey D's locations across the country, with a nationwide rollout in 2026.
