Have you ever listened to Delilah? You know the radio show where soft rock ballads and love songs are played between calls from dumb asses looking for the most obvious advice? Yeah me neither…but the other night while switching out my Dubstep mix tape for Kanye’s latest, I just so happened to catch Miss Delilah giving the most fucked anecdote about chickens, and for some reason it really made me want McNuggets.
Apparently when Delilah was a young girl her neighbors kept a few chickens. Those chickens laid eggs and a few of them hatched. Delilah was quite fond of the little things and wanted to hold one. She went on to tell how she was allowed to hold one, proceeded to squeeze, squeezed hard, harder, and killed it. I completely forget the point of her story, I was too baffled by why she would tell it, and then way too distracted by Peter Cetera’s Glory of Love. That poor chick probably ended up looking like McD’s mechanically separated meat paste, which probably primed me to go snag a 4-piece.
Delilah had prefaced the whole thing by saying, “I probably shouldn’t tell this story” and I would have to agree. I probably shouldn’t have peeled a scrumptious McNugget and waited so long to eat the rest of them. The only thing worse than a cold McNugget is a bare one.
but when they are ’fresh’..or at least warm, they’re fantastic. They aren’t Chick-Fil-A quality, but they’re cheap, nostalgic, and damned tasty. The crispy fried crust is the best in the nugget game, and the inner meat mash brings a pleasantly mild peppery flavor. When combined it makes for a type of goodness that can make 20 pieces dissapear as quickly as 4.
McDonald’s released several new sauces a couple of months ago, but they aren’t needed. If you are a saucer, the classics are still the best: honey, sweet & sour, and of course Heinz Ketchup.
So yeah, McNuggets may be pretty messed up, but they taste good. I’m still working on finding redeeming qualities for Delilah.
The boys over at GubGrade were spot on with their review.
