I often go to drive-thrus in Colorado. I know that fast food is not the healthiest habit, but it is the reality of living a busy life.

I should prepare more meals at home, but I don't dedicate the time to it. I'm trying to change that habit in my life right now.

McDonald's has been getting quite a bit of backlash lately due to the rapid price increases. I have noticed that prices have nearly tripled for some menu items.

There is one menu item that I can not find in Northern Colorado and I am sick and tired of it.

Why Is Everything So Spicy in Colorado?

Have you noticed that most McDonald's in Colorado exclusively offer the Hot n' Spicy McChicken? The Hot 'n Spicy McChicken is not available in all states and you could say that this menu item's availability makes Colorado unique.

The only other state that I have found the Hot n' Spicy McChicken is exclusively offered is in Nevada.

However, I have noticed that the standard McChicken is found nearly nowhere.

Why I Have Beef With Colorado's Spicy McChicken

Look, I think the Hot 'n Spicy McChicken is great. But I do not want it all the time. I apologize for calling out Colorado McDonald's workers, but the Hot n' Spicy McChicken's are hardly ever fresh.

Hot 'n Spicy McChickens that have been lying around are a perfect recipe for heartburn.

I know this is a first-world problem. This problem (if you could call it that) came to mind when I was out of town for a wedding. It is one of those things where I think to myself wait, why isn't that offered here?

Am I wrong? Have you found a normal McChicken in Colorado? Let us know and send us a message.
