The McSpicy burger will make a triumphant return to McDonald’s branches across the UK after a successful temporary launch last year. Fans loved the chilli marinade and spicy crispy coating so much that McDonald’s has decided to make it a permanent fixture on the menu.
What is the McSpicy?
The burger features a spicy chicken breast fillet topped with crunchy cool lettuce and mayo between toasted sesame seed buns. It will go on sale next week for £4.79 or £6.29 as part of an extra value meal – a 50p increase on last year.
Gráinne Allen, Director of Food and Innovation for McDonald’s in the UK and Ireland commented in the announcement, as per The Halifax Courier:
We’re so pleased to be welcoming the McSpicy to our permanent menu across the UK and Ireland.
The McSpicy brings the heat to our menu, and we hope chicken lovers across the nation are as excited about its permanence as we are.
