Not new to hopping on the bandwagon of any viral sensation popping off on Twitter, the fast food chain responded with a tweet of their own.
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! https://t.co/qrtvWXjj9V

In a mission to raise social [media] awareness to their existence, (because we all know that everyone goes to Chic-Fil-A for nuggets now) – they insisted that if 2 million people liked their tweet, the ‘higher-ups’ would agree on the return of spicy nuggets. By Sunday night, Twitter users across the globe reached record numbers.
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!!

It hasn’t been confirmed just yet but Chance posted an Instagram photo stating that the chicken nuggets will re-release the same day as his upcoming album.
In all seriousness: thank you Chance!
