I am just going to say it, I like McDonald’s chicken nuggets. There, I said it. They are however, not something that I would or do eat on a regular basis. I can count on one hand how many times I have had chicken nuggets in the last year, but when I do have them, yes, please. Spare me the details of how they are made, and let me live in ignorance of where my food comes from. Please and thank you! When I heard that McD’s was bringing in spicy nugs for a limited time, I was pumped because spicy nugs are my jam.
I hopped on DoorDash and ordered from the McDonald’s less than a block away because I am that person, to have fresh, spicy nugs, delivered to my pretty little hands. I must say I was a little apprehensive because the McD’s closest to me can be a little dicey. Sometimes the fries are not fresh, sometimes they straight up forget things for my order, so who knows maybe I was going to get regular ole chicken nuggets. The spicy nuggets no longer come in a box, but they did when they were first released (when I took these pictures). For some reason they are served in a bag, despite the regular ones still in a box. This is not really a big deal except like it pour my fries into the top of the box for easier consumption and nestle the sweet and sour sauce cup into them as well.
I wasn’t sure what spicy was going to mean to McDonald’s. Obviously they want something with a kick, but it still has to appeal to the masses so it can’t be over the top, and sure enough I was right. The spice blend into the crunchy exterior is a good blend of a classic nugget with a little bit of heat. Personally I could go for more (think Wendy’s spicy nuggets!) but I enjoyed these. I think the addition of the sweet and sour sauce really was a good overall mix together. I hope that these eventually become a menu staple item for them as I think it would become my go-to order item.
