Burger King drops Mala burgers while McDonald's hits back with return of spicy McNuggets and curry sauce bottle

Fast-food giants Burger King and McDonald's are turning up the heat this summer with offerings set to challenge everyone's spice tolerance.

From today onwards, fans of BK can sweat it out with the latest Mala Stacker Burgers with patties covered in tongue-numbing mala sauce.

Singapore has been hit hard by the mala trend -- and it seems like it won't be going away anytime soon.

Available in two variations, beef and chicken, the value meal starts from $6.90 which includes a medium pack of French fries and a small coke.

Want to up the ante?

Add $2.80 for an extra patty, mala sauce and sliced cucumber for more kick and indulgence -- but don't go running for the porcelain throne because of the spice!
