It’s 2 AM and you’re scarfing down a double order of Chicken McNuggets that have sat in your refrigerator since last week. You’re in a hurry to eat them before they spoil and become too unhealthy to eat. But you’re also curious: the heavenly McNuggets appear to fit into regular shapes.
Hayley Peterson of Business Insider investigated and discovered that McDonald’s identifies 4 standard McNugget shapes: the ball, the bell, the boot, and the bone, which is sometimes called the bow tie. Why?
"Our Chicken McNuggets are shaped uniquely for kids and kids at heart — it makes dipping more fun!" the company wrote.
So why just four shapes?
According to the chain, "three would've been too few. Five would've been, like, wacky."
This seems like an inadequate answer. McDonald’s must be hiding something sinister.
