Nuggets of Wisdom: Don’t eat the chicken nuggets!

October 27, 2010

Ever wonder how they get chicken to look like a baby dinosaur or a tiny little drumstick? Some things are better left unknown. But, since you asked…

Chicken, yes all of it, is processed, separated and put through an extruder. At this stage, it is rinsed in ammonia, to kill the bacteria that this pinkish goop is rife with. To hide the ammonia taste, it is flavored with artificial chicken flavoring, and dyed a more appealing white. It is then shaped into the character of choice, deep fried in God knows what type of oil, and fed to our unsuspecting children.

So now you know. Gross, isn’t it?
