McDonald’s launches new spicy chicken McNuggets

New McFlurry flavor launching as well on Sept. 16

Spicy Chicken McNuggets® and Mighty Hot Sauce hitting U.S. menus this fall, along with new McFlurry® (McDonald's)

McDonald’s is introducing two new menu items, spicy chicken McNuggets and the Chips Ahoy! McFlurry, as it tries to lure customers back during the pandemic.

Spicy chicken McNuggets is the first new McNuggets flavor in the U.S. since they first hit the menu in 1983.

The spicy version has a breaded tempura coating of cayenne and chili peppers.

And they come with the company's first new dipping sauce in three years: mighty hot sauce.

The sauce includes a blend of crushed red pepper, spicy chilies and garlic.

As for the Chips Ahoy! McFlurry, it includes vanilla soft-serve ice cream, Chips Ahoy! Cookie pieces, and caramel topping.

Both new items will hit U.S. restaurants on Sept. 16 and will be available for a limited time.
