Last week, we poked fun at McDonald’s for not only taking nearly a week to respond to a simple question about dipping sauces, but for turning that response into one of the most convoluted marketing messages we’ve ever received. After getting some Egg McMuffin on its face, the fast food giant has finally provided a more straightforward response. [More]
The ghost of pink goop is still haunting McDonald’s. The chain’s Canadian arm is seeking to dispel the idea that a machine pumps out tubes of pink stuff to fill your chicken McNuggets, with a new video showing how the chicken bits are made. So far as we can see, there’s no pink stuff. At least, not on camera. [More]
When you think of an Olympic athlete, words like “finely-tuned physique” and “my body is a temple” come to mind. But at least one highly-celebrated physical specimen of athleticism admits to filling that temple with fried bits of chicken stuff. [More]
For as long as I can remember, I’ve known that McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets came in only a handful of repeating shapes. But I’d never considered that the folks at the Golden Arches actually had specific names for each of the four types of McNugget. [More]
When you look down at your fast food meal, you don’t expect to see the terrifying, misshapen face of a zombie staring back at you. But that’s what happened to a McDonald’s customer in New Jersey, who could have just gobbled the offending nugget and never thought of it again. No, this nugget is bound for greater things. They’re selling it on eBay. The bidding currently stands at $2.75. [More]
McDonald’s is offering $.99 6-piece McNugget Mondays regional promotion, good now through Sept. 30, limited to the Miami-Dade, Broward, and Monroe counties of Florida. Normally it’s $.99 for 4, so it’s basically two free nuggets. [More]
I like the Chicken McNugget. Hey, it’s not chicken or anything, but my sole interest in the McNugget is as a flavor carrier of McDonald’s brand sweet and sour sauce. I love that stuff. It is for that sauce — looking oh-so-remarkably like the output of a mewling newborn — that I can never bring myself to order any similar gobble-sized chicken parts from Burger King or the like. Their “chicken tenders” (in case you never noticed, a creative marketing euphemism for “chicken genitalia”) may taste better than the McNugget, but that pink, orange-flecked sweet and sour sauce is an abomination.
