McDonald’s is launching a brand new version of its beloved chicken nuggets just before the end of the year.

The fast food chain has previously sold limited edition McNugget flavours, such as its spicy nuggets last year. Now, for the first time ever, McDonald’s is offering up Katsu Curry McNuggets.

A McDonald’s spokesperson said, “The new limited edition Katsu Curry Chicken McNuggets are a match made in heaven and everything you didn’t know you needed until this very moment.”

    The nuggets are 100 per cent chicken breast meat coated in crispy Katsu curry panko breadcrumbs, served with the classic sweet curry dip.

    The Katsu Curry Chicken McNuggets are available in the following prices:

    • 6 for £3.59
    • 9 for £4.09
    • 20 for £5.99

    When will they be available?

    The new nuggets are available to buy right now - they launched on Wednesday 30 December.

    McDonald’s says that they are “the tastiest way to wave goodbye to 2020 and start the new year as you mean to go on.”

    However, if you want to get your hands on some, you’ll need to be quick, as they’re only hanging around for six weeks.

    ‘See out 2020 the right way’

    McDonald’s revealed the news via its official Twitter account, tweeting a picture of the new nuggets and writing, “Katsu. McNuggets. That’s it, that’s the tweet. #KatsuAtMcDonalds’.”

    It’s safe to say that the announcement caught the attention of the fast food chain’s fans.

    One person replied, “STOP IT.. you really do listen and provide THE GOODS.”

    Another tweeted, “Oh… my… goodness…!!!”

    “Why is the 30th so far away,” wrote another, with a crying face emoji.

    “Oh, heck yes. I’m getting 20 of these, and another 20: see out 2020 the right way,” tweeted someone else.
