McDonald’s announced a pair of menu innovations arriving to U.S. restaurants this fall: Spicy Chicken McNuggets and Mighty Hot Sauce. Both will be available September 16 for a limited time at participating restaurants nationwide.

Breaded with a tempura coating made of both cayenne and chili peppers, the Spicy Chicken McNuggets join the classic McNugget lineup.

McDonald’s also crafted a new Mighty Hot Sauce, boasting a blend of crushed red peppers and spicy chilis. The new dipping sauce is both the chain’s first new sauce innovation since 2017 and the hottest one available at McDonald’s.

“This is the first time we’ve introduced a new flavor of our classic Chicken McNuggets in the U.S. since they came to menus in 1983,” says Vice President of Menu Innovation, Linda VanGosen. “As our customers have been asking for Spicy McNuggets for some time now, we couldn’t think of a better time to bring them to our menus. We can’t wait for McNuggets fans to get a taste of these new spicy options.”

Additionally, McNuggets is introducing a new Chips Ahoy! McFlurry. This treat features vanilla soft-serve, caramel topping and Chips Ahoy! cookie pieces blended throughout. The Chips Ahoy! McFlurry will be available in Snack and Regular sizes for a limited time at participating U.S. restaurants nationwide beginning September 16.
