The People Get What the People Want: Spicy Nuggets are Coming Back

Whenever I see a post from Wendy’s, I see multiple comments of people begging for the spicy chicken nuggets to be added back to the menu. They’ve been gone since the spring of 2017. People have always been very passionate about them, given the title of an article on Delish titled, “Wendy’s Got Rid Of Its Spicy Chicken Nuggets And The Internet Is Pissed.” After two years of people begging for Wendy’s to bring back the nuggets, Twitter brought out the big guns: Chance the Rapper. On May 4th, Chance 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.” Wendy’s quoted the Tweet and said that if their Tweet gets 2 million likes, they’ll bring back the nuggets. Of course, since Chance is so popular, as well as the spicy nuggets being so popular, their Tweet got 2.21 million likes in under 48 hours. After that, Wendy’s Tweeted, “THIS IS NOT A DRILL! Spicy Chicken Nuggets are coming back! Y’all are crazy! That took like a day and a half! WHAT?! We don’t know when yet, gotta figure it out, but soon, and ok, LOSING IT RIGHT NOW THIS IS AMAZING!!” Recently, they announced that the nuggets will make their return on August 19th, so if you work at Wendy’s, I’d suggest calling in sick that day.
