The fast food chain has launched seven new flavors for its nuggets

With fast food chains like Chick-fil-A and Burger King trying their best to keep consumers coming back, Wendy’s is the latest restaurant to start enticing customers with a new menu item. 

Wendy’s has launched new saucy chicken nuggets, which they’re calling “Saucy Nuggs.” Customers will be able to choose from seven new flavors – plus a side of ranch or bleu cheese. 

“This new innovation is all about providing a next-level culinary experience rooted in flavor,” said John Li, global vice president of culinary innovation at Wendy’s. “We crafted four unique sauces to complement the Wendy’s nugget experience and to provide fans with a variety of chicken options that meet their lifestyles and palettes. Whether fans want a bite-sized snack or a full meal, we’ve got them covered with our new Saucy Nuggs.” 

All the new flavors

Wendy’s new saucy chicken nuggets flavors include: 

  • Honey BBQ

  • Garlic Parm

  • Buffalo

  • Spicy Honey BBQ

  • Spicy Garlic Parm

  • Spicy Buffalo

  • Spicy Ghost Pepper

All of the flavors are available in four-, six-, 10-, or 20-piece orders. 

Wendy’s explained that all restaurants will be fully stocked with the new flavors starting Monday, June 10. However, consumers can start ordering the new chicken nuggets immediately through the Wendy’s app or website and selecting an in-store pickup or delivery. 

Get deals on the new chicken nuggets

Both Wendy’s and DoorDash will offer consumers deals on the new spicy chicken nuggets. 

For this week only, Wendy’s is offering customers a $0 delivery fee on all orders placed in the app. 

Additionally, DoorDash will be offering customers a free six-piece chicken nugget with any Wendy’s order of $15 or more. In addition, DashPass members can get free saucy chicken nuggets with a $20 purchase. 

“Wendy’s chicken nugget fandom is truly unrivaled, so it was only natural for us to level up our iconic Nuggs with even more flavor for our fans,” said Lindsay Radkoski, U.S. Chief Marketing Officer for Wendy’s. “Saucy Nuggs unlock even more opportunities for our brand to meet the needs of new and existing Wendy’s fans.”
