Chicken McNuggets: 25 years of dunkable chicken

McNuggets now old enough to rent a car

You know you're getting old when you realize that the Chicken McNugget is now a quarter of a century old.

According to McDonald's, the McNugget was introduced to the national U.S. menu in 1983. (For some reason, I think I remember eating McNuggets a lot earlier than 1983, but it's possible that upstate New York got to enjoy McNuggets before the rest of the country.) McDonald's says McNuggets are now sold in more than 100 countries worldwide.

As part of McNugget Mania, the restaurant chain has launched a new fan site, Nuggnuts.com, where people can express their joy of McNuggets. We'd rather just have you read our article on McNuggets, written a few years ago when McDonald's switched their recipe to include "all white meat" and eliminate the game of McNugget Roulette (the odd chance you'd get a dark meat McNugget).
