SAN DIEGO — Big news for fans of Wendy’s spicy chicken nuggets! The restaurant chain is bringing them back.
Here’s a little background: Wendy’s pulled the popular item from their menu back in 2017, and fans have been mourning the loss since.
Apparently, Chance the Rapper is one of those fans. On Saturday, he tweeted: “Positive Affirmations for today: I WILL have a good day, I Will succeed today, Wendy’s WILL bring back spicy nuggets at some point please please Lord let it be today.”
