Whenever McDonald's releases anything new, it's usually met with serious hype. But will the same happen with a remake of a menu classic?

McDonald's New Zealand has today announced online the launch of Spicy Chicken McNuggets, and loyal nugget fans appear to have already been set into a frenzy.

According to the McDonald's Facebook page, the spicy offering is "here for a good time, not a long time." Nugget enthusiasts are taking that very seriously.

Another eager commenter who had already sampled the spicy nuggets, gave a rave review, noting the spicy bbq sauce is a must.

The nuggets, which come with the choice of spicy sticky bbq sauce or aioli are available from today at participating restaurants for a limited time only.
