Wendy’s has finally done it — they’re bringing back spicy chicken nuggets after an unlikely call to action on Twitter.

It all started with a tweet from Chance The Rapper.

“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,” the rapper’s tweet read.

Then, Wendy’s quote tweeted it and agreed to bring them back if Twitter could do one thing — like their tweet two million times.

Y’all keep asking, so here’s your chance. The people in charge say if you guys can get our tweet (this one right here) to 2 Million likes, they will bring SPICY CHICKEN NUGGETS BACK.

Let’s freakin’ do this!” it read.



Two million is a ton of likes, but if anyone could do it, it’d probably end up being the hilarious Wendy’s account. We aren’t the only ones who believed in them, Twitter itself thought so too.

The tweet sent the social media site to a frenzy with everyone liking and retweeting their tweet to get back the beloved fast food item. Some people in the scene, including makeup mogul Jeffree Star, called for fans to like it.

Star Family, help make this happen!!!!!  Wendy, How Are Ya?” his tweet reads.

Then, after less than two days, Twitter actually did it.

“THIS IS NOT A DRILL! Spicy Chicken Nuggets are coming back! Y’all are crazy! That took like a day and a half! WHAT?! We don’t know when yet, gotta figure it out, but soon, and ok, LOSING IT RIGHT NOW THIS IS AMAZING!!”

That is seriously impressive. Now we’ll just have to wait and see when we can finally enjoy our favorite nuggets ever again.

Wendy’s Twitter is always playing games. Remember earlier this year when they went savage mode on our scene favorite such as Hawthorne Heights, State Champs, Knocked Loose and more.
