May cause kidney stones?


If you watched any of the Olympics, you probably saw advertisements for 50 McDonald's chicken nuggets for $10. Or $15 if you include 2 large fries and 2 drinks. And if you know me, you probably know that I love me some McDonald's chicken nuggets. Yes, yes, I know. I just like them ok? I happen to think they are delicious. And I can eat a lot of them. Although exactly how many had never before been put to the test.

At home they had $1 four-piece McNuggets on Tuesdays. Tuesdays were good days.

So when Mollie and I saw the ads for 50 chicken nuggets we knew we would have to go get them. And soon. Limited time offer you know. We made our plans and went for a late lunch/early dinner on a Thursday. Only to discover that it was a Friday-Sunday only offer. Not to be discouraged Mollie went and asked if we could get them anyways and they said we could since we asked.

We were both more than a little disappointed to find that we just got 5 of the normal ten-piece boxes. Come on, admit it. Weren't you picturing a giant box full of 50 nuggets? We were. Mollie, Will, Sawyer and I set to eating our nuggets. Will packed in 9. Sawyer ate 3.5. (The playground was just too exciting.) Mollie and I ate until we were full and then counted our boxes. We had both tucked away 17 nuggets (um each. not combined.). Bryce met us there and polished off the remaining few.

Mmmmmmmmm.

We love nuggets.

Connection to the kidney stone I got a few weeks later? Unsubstantiated. Should probably eat more nuggets to test the theory.

...the weird exposure setting on your camera makes those last few chicken nuggets look radioactive.

Megan - I think that is because they are radioactive. Radioactively delicious.

Ya, I was thinking....hmmmmm, I think I will not be eating chicken nuggets anymore, those look unnatural.
