Phoood Hall of Fame: McDonald's Chicken McNuggets

mcnuggets.jpgI can hear it now: “McNuggets? You’ve got to be kidding. Only kids eat them.” Well, maybe we can learn something from kids. The much-maligned McNugget is viewed as a joke by many people, not “real” food and certainly not something that a sophisticated adult would eat. Perhaps a sophisticated adult wouldn’t eat them, but then, I’m not very sophisticated. I just like my fast food to be tasty, deep fried, and easy to dip into a little tub of sauce. The McNugget meets all these criteria. Another great thing about McNuggets is that you can order them in various quantities, depending on your appetite. The 10-piece McNugget pack, fries, and a soft drink make a nice meal for me. McDonalds sometimes offers a 20-pack, which is probably more McNuggets than any one person should eat but is sure hard resist for this McNugget fan. It’s time the McNugget received the recognition it deserves, which is why it is being inducted into the prestigious Phoood Hall of Fame.

I agree, I've enjoyed them for years and nothing 'bad' has ever happened. They are tasty, small and convenient. So Congradulations Mcnugget. Now how about the McRib??

I once got a 7 piece mcnuggets at the local McDonalds and when I bit into them, they were the rawest meatstuff I had ever bit into.

It was on that sad fateful day that I lost all my strength and became Lance Armweak. :( I will never forgive you McDonalds.

My arms despise you.

These bad boys are the ultimate drunk food next to del taco burritos.

I'm glad the McNuggets are getting the recognition that they deserve! These have always been on of my go-to foods at McDonald's when nothing else has interested me. They taste so good with or without any dip. Keep 'em coming, Mickey D's!!
