PHOENIX – It has been quite the journey but we have finally made it to the end! Wendy’s is releasing their spicy chicken nuggets worldwide on Aug. 12.

Previously, the fast-food chain announced the return of the popular menu item in May but said due to supplies and planning, the nuggets would not officially return until Aug. 19.

Well, it seems the nuggets took less time to prepare than they anticipated and the restaurant could not contain their excitement. The Wendy’s Twitter account announced this morning that the spicy nuggets will return Aug. 12, five days earlier than the original release date!

Everyone needs to Tweet Chance the Rapper a thank you note immediately.

In case you missed it, the spicy chicken nuggets from Wendy’s were removed from the menu in 2017. Though some fans shared their desire for the delicious snack to return to stores, the chain did not act on it until a tweet from celebrity Chance the Rapper.

Wendy’s then proposed a deal with their followers. If their tweet received two million likes, the nuggets would return.

Started from the bottom and now we’re here!

Treat yourself on Aug. 12 and pick up some spicy chicken nuggets from your local Wendy’s.
