McDonald’s has dashed the McHopes of Canadians by confirming that they are not bringing back the beloved McPizza.
The fast food empire teased fans on Friday with the announcement that “the thing u have been asking for” will arrive on August 31.
The tweet lead to speculation that the cult-classic McPizza was making a triumphant return to the menu—so much so, in fact, that “McPizza” began trending nationally.
However, McDonald’s has now confirmed that whatever it has in store for Tuesday is not pizza-related.
“it’s not mcpizza. think more spice, less slice,” McDonald’s Canada tweeted on Saturday.
it’s not mcpizza. think more spice, less slice. gonna marathon Ted Lasso and relax now. see u monday.

Canada’s dream of McPizza crushed, many now believe the mystery item will be spicy nuggets. Something that, apparently, no body asked for.

What a McDisappointment. I mean, you could have just put out a spicy sauce with regular nuggs… no one asked for this. Peeps been asking for McPizza for yeeeeears. Read the room.

So it’s a nugget slathered in generic hot sauce? I can order McNuggets are use a good hot sauce at any time. We wanted McPizza, you could’ve made a fortune on it, but you failed again.

McDevastated fans can always take a trip to the world’s largest McDonald’s in Orlando, Florida, where the discontinued item is still served. They’ve got McPasta, too.
Whether or not you were hoping for McPizza, you’ll have to wait until Tuesday for the spicy reveal.
