Even those pesky pink slime rumors couldn’t stop McDonald’s from slinging one of its signature menu items. By some estimates, the chain sells upwards of 4.8 billion nuggets annually.  

Now the chain is undergoing a big push to distance itself as a dominating fast food force and is testing a version of nuggets without any preservatives or artificial additives in its McNugget mixture. But the simplified McNugget is still in test mode—and it’s not nationally available (the chain hasn’t announced when it plans to roll out the new nugget).
