Welcome to a brand new blog post! McDonalds released Spicy Chicken McNuggets a couple of weeks ago, and, I thought that today I would talk to you all about them. (Who doesn't love a good McNugget?)
McDonalds have brought out an 'Old Classics' promotional range out to their UK stores for a limited time. The concept of this range, is to bring back, old classics that customers have loved in the past/have demanded for them to come back to the UK menu in some way shape or form. The range asp includes, a Double Quarter Pounder With Cheese, Cheese Bites, and, Twix and Mars McFlurry's.
The Spicy Chicken McNuggets come in a choice of either, 6,9, or 20. I decided to get a 20 Spicy Chicken McNugget Sharebox, because, well I needed to try a fair few for.... 'blog purposes'. The McNuggets come with their own special dip, which I will talk about later within the post.
The McNuggets come in a sort of fluorescent Red coating, which instantly baffled me. I wondered why they were so Red. I got why, to show that they had Spice compared to the normal McNuggets but I thought that it was, well weird, to be so Red that even Tomatoes aren't that Red. The Coating itself was actually quite crisp, with a light sort of batter feel to it, which was definitely a nice contrast against the Chicken itself. The Chicken was super succulent. You could tell that it was proper Chicken. it felt like the Chicken had been marinated in Buttermilk or something similar.
The Spice is a slightly interesting one for me. These have a more warming than anything Spice to them. It's obvious that there's some Paprika in them. I think that the Spice level in the McNuggets alone would be fabulous on a cold evening. I do think that when eating these one after another, the warmth does build up which I still quite like. It's more the sauce and the nugget combined which makes it ultra spicy and tangy.
The Dip is where the Spice really kicks in. The first note that I got from the dip was Vinegar. That sort of lip suckering tang which made your mind go, 'this might not end well.' It's a Spicy Tomato Dip. The Tomato is definitely there but once the Tomato has melted away from your taste buds, the inferno kicks in and your tongue is enduring a tangy fiery kick that came from nowhere. I like the Dip, but my main problem with it is that you can't choose any other. This becomes a bit of a problem when you get four tubs of it. I think that maybe a creamy one, like the Sour Cream and Onion one from the Selects would be fabulous, or, maybe something a bit more fruity would be amazing with these too.
Would I Get Them Again?
I think that I would definitely get them again. They're slightly different but amazing. Would I stop getting normal nuggets for these? Maybe, I'm not sure. If there was a choice for different dips, like the normal McNuggets, then probably yes. I think that these have a time and a place and I think that these are great. Honestly, I wish that both had the sort of succulent Chicken interior, as the normal ones are always a tad dry. I think that these would be great for things such as night ins/parties, as you can all try them and tell each other your opinion of the McNuggets and Dip, especially if you love a good McNugget like myself.
Have you tried the new McNuggets? Let me know down below!
