If there's a trend at McDonald's, it's towards introducing more spicy items to the menu. Hot on the heels of the new Mighty Wings comes news that a line-up of four new Jalapeño Kicker sandwiches has been tested at McDonald's locations in Maryland and Colorado, and rumors are swirling that come 2014, they could pop up at a McD's near you.

The four new spicy sandwiches include the Jalapeño Kicker Quarter Pounder and the Jalapeño Kicker Premium Chicken (available with a grilled or fried chicken filet), both of which feature a triple-hit of jalapeños: jalapeño pepper jack cheese, crunchy jalapeño crisps, and pickled jalapeño slices, along with cream cheese sauce, tomato and lettuce. Spicy new additions to the breakfast menu being touted as "better than an alarm clock" on Twitter by Colorado McDonald's include a jalapeño and white cheddar cheese McMuffin and a jalapeño white cheddar cheese biscuit.
