McDonald's thinks you'll like its new spicy chicken McNuggets. So much so, Ronald and the gang have you covered even if you don't.

Anyone who buys a six-pack of the new nuggets gets a second six-pack free. That free pack can either be more spicy nuggets if you're pretty sure you'll dig them or the traditional version if you want some insurance.

That's why Mickey D's is calling this promotion "Spicesurance."

Spicy nuggets are breaded with a tempura coating infused with cayenne and chili peppers. But if they’re still not as spicy as you’d like, you can dunk the nuggets in the new Mighty Hot Sauce, made with red peppers and chilis.

“As our customers have been asking for Spicy McNuggets for some time now, we couldn’t think of a better time to bring them to our menus,” McDonald’s Vice President of Menu Innovation, Linda VanGosen said in a statement. “We can’t wait for McNuggets fans to get a taste of these new spicy options.”

Though there have been plenty of dipping sauces over the years this is the first time the restaurant has flavored the nuggets themselves since they were introduced in 1983.

The Spicy McNuggets go on sale on September 16th.
