Participating local McDonald’s restaurants are gearing up to offer an early football season special --- a limited-time offering called Mighty Wings.

Mighty Wings are described as “bone-in, crispy chicken wings that deliver a spicy kick with every bite,” and they were inspired by larger size chicken wings from McDonald’s Hong Kong, the company says.

“Chicken wings are one of the most commonly ordered items at sit-down restaurants while watching sports,” Nicole DiNoia, communications manager for McDonald’s Boston Region, said in a statement. “By adding Mighty Wings to our menu this fall, we want to bring the popularity and fun of chicken wings to customers looking for any reason to order them – be it during game day or on-the-go.”

Plans call for Mighty Wings to be available from mid-September through mid-November.

Mighty Wings will come in several portion sizes, including a three-piece serving for $2.99 and a 10-piece serving for $8.99, the company said.

There are about 240 McDonald’s restaurants in Massachusetts.
