UPDATE: No, McDonald’s Isn’t Selling McNuggets by the Bucket
UPDATE: Fake news isn’t just reserved for politics. Even seasoned food journalists can get duped by the frenzy of news around the web, us included. When we saw a story about McDonald’s selling a 48-piece McNugget meal in a bucket, naturally we were very excited. We emailed McDonald’s, but in the meantime saw that some of our favorite food sites around the web had already published stories about this miraculous food item in Japan, so we ran with it. McDonald’s got back to The Daily Meal on Friday, August 24, to say that the story was right, but it was actually three years old and they had no plans to do it again.
We still wish McDonald’s would bring back this wonderful sounding promotion, only this time to America where it’s already been hyped. However, the only musical group we might have with a ton of people to promote it is Brockhampton.We seriously regret the error.
It’s our fast food dream almost come true. McDonald’s is selling McNuggetsby the bucket. You would think this KFC-like dream meal would be made in America, but this 48-piece bucket of nuggets is being sold only in Japan as a collaboration with Japanese girl band NGT48.
