The fast food chain will rename their Quarter Pounder with Cheese meal after the rapper for a limited time.
To celebrate the nationwide launch of McDonald’s Spicy Chicken McNuggets, the fast-food chain is offering a buy-one-get-one free deal Wednesday.
The special has been dubbed “Spicesurance” and will only available on the McDonald’s mobile app: Order a six-piece Spicy Chicken McNuggets through the app and get another six nuggets, either classic or spicy, for free.
It’s the first flavor McDonald’s USA has introduced to the McNugget since the product debuted in 1983. The nuggets are breaded with a tempura coating made of both cayenne and chili peppers.
But the Spicesurance offer comes with a lot of fine print – nearly 9,000 words of it, and it’s different from the terms and conditions of most offers.
