The wait is over. If you’re a foodie that loves those delicious spicy chicken nuggets from Wendy’s, you are in for a real treat. The popular fast food chain just announced they will be bringing back the beloved chicken breast morsel after Chance the Rapper recently took to social media to persuade them to bring back one of their most popular menu items. Wendy’s officially removed spicy chicken nuggets from their menu nationwide in March 2017, however, it has still been available in select locations like St. Louis, MO, and Austin, TX. The rest of the general public has mourned the loss since they were taken off of the menu.
How it happened
This entire spicy chicken nugget revival happened when Chance the Rapper randomly 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 Lord let it be today.” Wendy’s got wind of the weet and initially responded to the rapper saying, “It won’t be today, but there’s always a chance.” Later, the fast food favorite followed up with the promise this promise: “Y’all keep asking, so here’s your chance. The people in charge say if you guys can get our tweet (this one right here) to 2 Million likes, they will bring SPICY CHICKEN NUGGETS BACK. Let’s freakin’ do this!” Chance the Rapper then took to Twitter to like the tweet and express his love for Wendy’s spicy chicken nuggets.
Since then the initial tweet made by Wendy’s has received well over 2 million likes which prompted the fast food giant to send out a tweet saying: “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!!”
When will they be available on the menu?
After Wendy’s made it official that the Spicy chicken nuggets would be making a return, stomachs everywhere wanted to know the exact date that they’ll be put back on the menu. Chance the Rapper had his own suggestions by tweeting the following: “Can we drop them the same day as the album? I need them together.”
While Wendy’s has not confirmed any date for the item to be available back on the menu, many fans and food lovers are hoping that the fast food restaurant takes Chance the Rapper’s advice. While we still wait for more details, no official re-release date has been announced by Wendy’s.
Customer is Always Right
Wendy’s allowing the public demand to have an impact on their business decision is a forward-thinking and innovated move. We live in an age where public opinion is becoming more and more prominent in all facets of our lives. Being that Chance the Rapper’s initial tweet which challenged customers to hit the like button if they wanted spicy chicken nuggets back got 2 million interactions very quickly, it gave the fast food conglomerate a direct look into the minds and desires of their customer base. Genius. While we still wait for details regarding what the official date will be that they’re put back on the market, our mouths are already watering.
