Everyone is losing their minds now that the spicy chicken nuggets are officially back on the menu at Wendy’s!

The fast-food chain was originally going to bring them back on August 19th, but instead released the nuggets on Monday, August 12th.

It all started in May 2019 when hip hop artist Chance the Rapper tweeted: “Positive Affirmations for today: I WILL have a good day, I Will succeed today, Wendy’s WILL bring back spicy nuggets at some point please please Lord let it be today.”


When Wendy’s saw the tweet, they made a deal with their Twitter users that if their tweet hit 2 million likes they’d bring the nuggets back.


The tweet surpassed their 2 million requirements by roughly 200,000.

So, if you’ve been counting down the days and saving up your money, rejoice. The time has finally come. Wendy’s also confirmed that the spicy nuggets will be part of their ‘4 for $4’ deal.

The only caveat is that we don’t know how long the nuggets will stay on the menu. If history tells us anything, they won’t be around forever, so get them while you can.
