McDonalds Canada

Sorry Canada, the iconic McPizza isn’t making a return like some speculated on social media.

But while it wasn’t what everyone hoped for, starting today, you’ll be able to get a new version of one of your McDonald’s favourites. 

Spicy Chicken McNuggets!

This new version of the classic McNuggets launched at US McDonald’s locations last September and will be available for a limited time at participating Canadian locations. 

Made with 100% seasoned chicken breast and breaded with a spicy habanero heat, these new spicy McNuggets are perfect for those looking for a classic spin on their old favourite.

Spicy Buffalo Dipping Sauce will also be available for those who want even more heat! 

Reactions to this new release were not all positive, however. 

Late last week, McDonald’s Canada hinted at a new menu item and it sent the internet into a nostalgic frenzy. 

On August 27th, McDonald’s Canada tweeted “THE THING U HAVE BEEN ASKING FOR ARRIVES 08.31.2021”. This caused Twitter to speculate as to what the new menu item would be.

Twitter began to flood with responses hoping the legendary McPizza would return. 

The same day, McDonald’s Canada tweeted a customized Canada Heritage Moment, teasing everyone with a feature of the McPizza.


This only fueled speculation that Canada would soon see the return of the nostalgic 90’s menu item. 

The next day, on August 28th, McDonald’s Canada returned to Twitter to break the news that the new menu item would not be the McPizza. 

The response was overwhelming: 


Currently, only one McDonald’s franchise location sells the McPizza. Unfortunately, it is in Orlando, Florida. 

Spicy Chicken McNuggets will be available at participating McDonald’s Canada locations for a limited time.
