From now until March 11, McDonald’s will be introducing a spicy twist to the McChicken calling it the Spicy McChicken. There will be three levels of heat and it around only for a limited time in Canada (until March 11).
Here is the schedule of release:
Jalapeno McChicken: January 29 – March 11
Habanero McChicken: February 12 – March 11
Ghost Pepper McChicken: February 26 – March 11
I recently tried the Jalapeno one (I ordered it with extra sauce) and it’s got a nice kick to it when you bite into it with the sauce, but doesn’t leave too much of a resonating heat to it. The jalapeno sauce is mild, I’d say probably a 2-3/10 in terms of spiciness. But because I normally love my spice, it might skew how hot it might be to others.
It’s nice to see McDonalds trying something new without going too out there – just adding to their already popular McChicken is a safe way to introduce a new item, even if its limited edition.
