Burger King turns up the summer heat with spicy nuggets

Bold, crispy, and spicy: Burger King’s new chicken nuggets are a must-try

Burger King spicy chicken nuggets called Fiery Nuggets

Burger King is spicing things up this summer with the launch of the spicy version of its beloved chicken nuggets called Fiery Nuggets.

How spicy are the Fiery Nuggets from Burger King?

Burger King’s Fiery Nuggets are the fast-food chain’s iconic chicken nuggets glazed with Cayenne peppers, Birds Eye chili, and Black pepper. As pointed out by Taste of Home, both Cayenne peppers and Bird’s Eye peppers are more than 10 times as hot as the average jalapeño. That means these chicken nuggets can seriously set your taste buds ablaze.

“Heat is definitely having a moment, so this felt like the perfect time to introduce the Fiery Nuggets with the spicy glaze we know our guests love,” said Chad Brauze, Senior Director of Culinary Innovation and Sustainability, Burger King North America, said in a press release. “Glazed with Cayenne peppers, Birds Eye chili, and Black pepper, the new nuggets provide the perfect combination of flavor and spice.”

What’s the perfect drink to go with Burger King’s Fiery Nuggets?

Burger King launched Fiery Nuggets alongside its latest take on frozen beverages, the Frozen Fanta Kickin’ Mango. Featuring a hint of sweet heat, the Frozen Fanta Kickin’ Mango is a refreshing combination of mango and citrus flavors kicked up with a touch of spicy chili flavor.

“The Fiery Nuggets needed an equally tasty companion, so we’re excited to introduce this limited-edition Frozen Fanta flavor exclusively at Burger King restaurants that simultaneously cools and kicks up the heat,” said Dane Callis, Senior Brand Manager, Fanta North America, in the press release. “Our Frozen Fanta Kickin’ Mango provides an explosion of bold mango citrus chili flavors that offer a refreshing, tongue-tingling sensation with a spicy finish that passes the hot grill summer vibe check.”
