Chance the Rapper does the impossible and brings back Wendy’s Spicy Chicken Nuggets

It pains us to thank a brand for anything, so we will instead thank Chance the Rapper, whose tweet about Wendy’s beloved Spicy Chicken Nuggets has (probably) led to their return to the menu.

On Saturday, Chance included the nuggets in a “positive affirmations” tweet. “I WILL have a good day today, I will succeed today, Wendy’s WILL bring back spicy nuggets at some point please please Lord let it be today,” he wrote.

The initial response from Wendy’s was disappointing: “It won’t be today, but there’s always a chance.” Later, though, the brand came through with a promise. If the below tweet got 2 million likes, they’d bring back the nuggets, which were phased out in 2017.

Well, people love those peppery meat chunks (we certainly do), and the tweet reached its goal by Monday. It looks like the company’s committed to the bit, too — Wendy’s has already confirmed several times that the nuggets will actually return.

Wendy’s has not yet set a date for the nuggets’ rebirth, although the social media manager  confirmed on Twitter that it would be “soon.” Perhaps very soon, considering the restaurant discontinued its chicken tenders just last week. Maybe to make room for the new breaded chicken product in town?

We’ve reached out to Wendy’s for comment and will update if we hear back.
