It’s that time of the year again: McDonald’s is starting 2024 off strong with a new limited-time offering, and we’ve got spicy news to share.
The new Spicy McWings is McDonald’s take on spicy, crunchy chicken wings, while the Sprite PeaChee Fruit Fizz is a refreshing Sprite-based soda drink that is flavored with peach and lychee. They won’t be available forever, so if you’re hankering for chicken with a spicy kick or a fruity, refreshing drink, we’ve written down everything you need to know.

What We Thought About The Spicy McWings And The PeaChee Fruit Fizz
1 The Spicy McWings’ spice level is beginner-friendly.
As someone who has low tolerance for spicy food (but insists on eating them anyway), I was worried that it would overwhelm. However, what I found when we first bit into the Spicy McWings is that while there is indeed a spicy kick to it, the spice level is pretty mild.
This is a good thing, because once the spicy, cunchy skin gives way to the juicy meat inside, you actually get a bite of an impeccably seasoned chicken wing! It’s flavorful and the spice level is just enough to whet the appetite.
2 You can really taste the peach and the lychee in the Sprite PeaChee Fruit Fizz.
We’ll get to the point: any time anybody makes a fruit-flavored drink, we’re all worried about whether it will taste like medicine (read: lasang gamot). And with the Sprite PeaChee Fruit Fizz, which incorporates not just one but two fruits, we’re happy to report that the peach and lychee flavors come through refreshingly and without that funky medicine taste.
It’s a shame that this drink is only available for a limited time, because it’s easily one of the most delicious drinks we’ve tried from McDonald’s!
3 The Spicy McWings and Sprite PeaChee Fruit Fizz are a match made in fastfood heaven.
It’s not a coincidence that these two products were put together: and that becomes evident when you try them! Imagine: you bite into the Spicy McWings, which are hot both in temperature and flavor. You crunch through the bite, and then reach for an ice-cold cup of Sprite PeaChee Fruit Fizz (try saying that fast), take a big gulp, and in an instant, the cold, peach-and-lychee soda drink takes over. It’s fruity, it’s cold, and it’s an instant palate cleanser. Rinse and repeat.
And as if that isn’t enough, the 4-pc Spicy McWings meal comes with fries, which is the perfect break between the hot wings and cold drink!
