Don’t deny yourself the nuggs

While it may not be the most ethical place to consume chicken, there’s no doubt that Chick-Fil-A has conquered the country. They’ve unveiled their biggest worldwide location in lower Manhattan, and they’re trying to outsource the whole cooking thing to their customers at home. It seems they won’t stop until the whole world capitulates to their chicken.

Now, Chick-fil-A is declaring war on normal chicken nugget serving sizes. They’re now selling a 30-piece pile of their classic breast meat nuggets, which, as always, are “seasoned to perfection [and] hand-breaded and pressure cooked in 100% refined peanut oil.” It sounds like they’ll retail for roughly $14.69, and clock in close to 1,000 calories. That makes it a decent shareable option, if you’re too weak to shove all 30 of those down your greedy little gullet, that is.

Chick-fil-A may not want to hear this, but 30 isn’t any kind of new record when it comes to nugget servings. McDonald’s will sell you 50 pieces of pink slime Chicken McNuggets, weighing in at a whopping 2210 calories. If Chick-fil-A were truly clever with their nugget distribution strategy, they’d release their 30 nuggets in a bucket, a nod to the recent fake news story about plans for a Japanese bucket o’ McNuggs.

Given that this isn’t a new menu item as much as it is a monument to our increasingly gluttonous habits, the 30 count of Chick-fil-A nuggets will be available nationwide now, and will have a permanent spot on the menu. So that means you either have time to work your way up to 30, or you can stuff your face with as many nuggets as possible in perpetuity. The choice is yours.
