I saw this on Gawker today, and it really hit home because I LOVE ME SOME CHICKEN McNUGGETS.
This is mechanically separated chicken. Chickens are turned into this goop so we can create delicious chicken nuggets and juicy chicken patties. It’s obscenely gross and borderline alien but it’s not going to stop me from eating nuggets. They’re too good.
The process works a little something like this:
There’s more: because it’s crawling with bacteria, it will be washed with ammonia, soaked in it, actually. Then, because it tastes gross, it will be reflavored artificially. Then, because it is weirdly pink, it will be dyed with artificial color.
DOESN’T IS LOOK LIKE A CHICKEN McNUGGET SNAKE? And why are they putting that into a CARDBOARD box… how is that sanitary. So along with being flavored by ammonia, I’m eating cardboard particles? Blehhhhhhh.
I really do love Chicken McNuggets and the apparent fake chicken flavor they put it in, but no more, no more. They should be called Chicken McAmonias (HAHASOCLEVER). Sorry to ruin them for you, but for the good of mankind it needs to be said.
