It was founded in 1940 in San Bernadino, California, and has really only gone from strength to strength since.

And there's a good reason for their success.

McDonald's has a menu absolutely filled with delicious items - truly, there's something for everyone at the golden arches.

But for many, there's one menu item that stands out...

The Chicken McNuggets, of course! First launched in the early eighties, have always remained close to the top of their bestselling items. For many, they're the only acceptable thing to order on the McDonald's menu.

But there's one downside to the McNugget.

Sure, they're tasty - but they're also a little on the bland side. And without a dipping sauce to add some flavor, you can end up feeling a little bit bored with your meal.

In fact, this is something that McDonald's could be criticized for across the board.

Although it does a lot of things really well, when it comes to spice... that's an entire category the menu is missing out on. Until now, that is!

Recently, many fast-food restaurants have been wising up to the spicy food trend.

Wendy's has been periodically reviving their ever-popular spicy nuggets, while Chick-Fil-A and Taco Bell have both upped their heat and expanded their menus to include spicier offerings.

But one restaurant has been keeping surreptitiously quiet on the subject.

What about spicier options for McDonald's loyalists? What about them??

Well, there's recently been a very exciting update in the case.

McDonald's is finally launching spicy McNuggets here in the United States!

The fast-food giant trialed something similar in the United Kingdom recently...

And now, it's time for us Americans to enjoy some of this spicy goodness.

We will very soon be graced with some spicy goodness...

And according to CNN, they will be the first new McNugget flavor in the United States since the item was introduced to the U.S menu in 1983.

The spicy McNuggets will definitely be a way to capitalize on America's taste for chicken!

They will have a breaded tempura coating of cayenne and chili peppers, along with coming with a Mighty Hot Sauce - which includes a blend of crushed red pepper, spicy chilies and garlic. Yum.

Also...

The Mighty Hot Sauce is the company's first new dipping sauce in 3 years.

This has been a long time coming...

"Our customers have been asking for Spicy McNuggets for some time now," said Linda VanGosen, vice president of menu innovation, in a blog post announcing the new item.

And as we can only imagine...

People are beyond excited.

Mcdonald's enthusiasts are ready to take on the heat...

Who knows how spicy they'll actually be!

The spicy McNuggets will be dropping in all U.S restaurants on 16th September...

But for a limited time only, so make sure to get there before they're gone! Keep on scrolling to check out Burger King's new tacos that look nothing like they do on the advert...
