Just when you thought the chicken sandwich wars were enough, now a battle for nugget supremacy has begun.

McDonald's hasn't changed the McNugget since it showed up on menus in 1983.

In 37 years, McDonald's hasn't made one change to their nuggets, up until now. Well, the change won't officially happen until September.

Because McDonald's is getting into the spicy nuggs game too.

For a limited time, McDonald's locations in Rockford and across the nation will have Spicy Chicken McNuggets on the menu.

The newly announced nugget flavor will also be accompanied by McDonald's first new dipping sauce flavor in three years called Mighty Hot Sauce.

McDonald's:

Breaded with a sizzling tempura coating made of both cayenne and chili peppers, these craveable, dippable and downright-delicious Spicy Chicken McNuggets are joining our classic McNugget line up, and pack plenty of spice and flavor into each bite.

That's not all, McDonald's is also adding a new dessert to the lineup, a Chips Ahoy McFlurry.

There are 14 different McDonald's restaurants in the Rockford area. The Spicy McNuggets and new McFlurry will be added to the menu on September 16.
