Listen up, McDonald's fans, we've got some news for you that's quite literally hot off the press.
McDonald's has just announced a brand-new addition to their menu that they say is their spiciest burger EVER.
The McDonald's McSpicy x Frank's RedHot, a collaboration between everyone's fave fast food restaurant and legendary hot sauce brand Frank's RedHot, launches on Wednesday 7th February.
If that sounds like just too long to wait for a hot and spicy 100% chicken breast fillet in a crispy coating with jalapeños, a never-seen-before-in-the-UK Frank’s RedHot Mayo and more, all in a sesame seed bun, then don't fret - there's a way to get your hands on some goodies to whet your appetite a full week before the burger's launch.
From today (31st January) a password-protected website will be launched (GetMeAMcSpicyFranksRedHotTastingBox.net), where the first 500 to enter the access code will be able to claim a much-coveted hot-sauce keyring (so you can carry your hot-sauce in your handbag in true Queen Bey-style), a bottle of the iconic Frank’s RedHot sauce and more. Wondering where you can get this exclusive and elusive code? Head to the McDonald's Instagram account to discover a *subtle* clue on how to get access.
The best bit about this whole secret code malarky? You get a totally free McSpicy x Frank's RedHot burger. All winners have to do is email the address provided in the box with their MyMcDonald’sRewards email and McDonald’s will credit their account with 5500 Rewards Points which they can claim via the app.
Thomas O’Neil, Head of Menu at McDonald’s UK and Ireland says McDonald's is responding to their customers' obsession with spice. "We know how much our customers love spice, and were blown away by the reaction to the McSpicy since it first launched as a limited-edition back in July 2021, growing to a permanent resident on our main menu," he says.
"This collaboration with Frank’s RedHot gave us such an exciting opportunity to build on an already iconic product and create something genuinely spicy but also delicious that we know both McDonald’s and Frank’s RedHot customers will love. We’re really looking forward to seeing the reaction," says O'Neil.
There is a teeny tiny downside, though. The new burger will only be available for six weeks in McDonald's in the UK and Ireland, so if you want to grab one you'll have to be quick.
