Ever wonder what exactly is in a chicken McNugget?
Mcdonalds of Canada is inviting folks on a video tour that shows the making of a McNugget , trying to debunk the rumor of pink goo.
Jeanne Moos, CNN, reports the fast food giant isnt chicken when it comes to taking on a misleading photo: considered the pink elephant in the room.
What are legitimately in McNuggets. Is there pink goop?
This pink goop a photograph that has snaked around the internet with the caption, can you guess what McDonalds food item this is.
Its said to be the entire chicken eyes, guts, bones ground up into something called mechanically separated poultry.
Not us, says McDonalds.
But, pink goo wont go away.
For years McDonalds has been trying to kill this photo.
Now, McDonalds of Canada has taken the goo by the horns, directly addressing the question in a super bowl commercial seen only in Canada.
Whats actually in nuggets? Is there any pink goop? Nope. Nada. None.
Mcdonalds wants you to see whats in their McNuggets, so theyve released a video tour. Starting with whole chickens, the breast meat is set aside to make McNuggets.
Dumping it into the grinder and adding the ground chicken breast meat to the blender with some seasonings and some chicken skin.
Thats pretty much it: ground up breast meat.
Heres pink goo image, and heres what we actually have, so its very different. Yeah, beige goo. Just kidding.
Two independent food science experts told CNN that McDonalds seems to be giving the straight scoop, though of course, theres nothing healthy about all the fat and salt in McNuggets. There is one other secret revealed on the tour.
The four chicken mcnugget shapes: the ball, the bell, the boot, and the bow tie. The ball, the bell, the boot, the bow tie? Do you see any of those things? One thing theyre not making McNuggets into is the shape of a snake.
Turn it into a bow tie.
Honey comes from bee guts, milk from cow glands, and eggs from a hen’s ass.
You’re on a “slime” roll. Nice work.
They’ve been calling it a hoax since about 5 minutes after the photos came out, but nobody listens.
Hot dogs were ALWAYS made of this stuff, if you ever saw them being made...
Some idiot libtard decided to do an ‘expose’ and called it ‘pink slime’ and should he horsewhipped for defaming the industry that way and costing millions of dollars.
Probably a vega-nazi who thinks everyone else should not eat meat because he doesn’t like it
You don’t want to know where toothpaste comes from.
People like sausage, but they don’t want to see how it’s made.
I thought the pink goop was what they put in the burgers.
Because you can't trust someone who makes pink slime.
I know a few taffy makers that would beg to differ.
Ok. I’m persuaded that “pink slime” is a myth. What about green slime!
Pink slime and the sweat of 7 nations?
Must be why they taste so good.
If the Lord did not want us to eat chicken, He wouldn’t have made them out of meat.
Parts is parts.
Why not just cut the breasts up into little nuggets and call them chicken strips or chicken tenders. Oh, they already do that?
I used to run a packing plant and we used to sell our chicken rib bones to a place that made hot dogs. They would crush the rib bones with a mechanical press which gets all of the meat out from between the rib. It’s basically the same thing people eat off the barbecue only from a chicken instead of a pig.
There is nothing unwholesome about it.
I have a theory about McDonalds, that is, everything they make is all one thing, and in the back they have this big vat full of this stuff, these little molds combining, like SPLURT Hamburger! SPLURT Malt! SPLURT Paper box! SPLURT Heres your change!
