Why McDonald's Chicken Nuggets Come In Four Specific Shapes

Why McDonald's Chicken Nuggets Come In Four Specific Shapes

Those keen eyed people who have no shame and scoff McDonald's chicken nuggets as often as possible will notice that the bundles of joy always come in four specific shapes. Other people, who actually have their priorities straight, won't have noticed this because the time it takes for the box to be opened and the nuggets to touch your lips is quicker than it takes to say 'I'm lovin' it'.

The four shapes are: the bell, the ball, the boot and the bow tie, with the latter also being referred to as 'the bone'.

It turns out that those shapes are made simply for decoration, and for kids to enjoy.

"Our Chicken McNuggets are shaped uniquely for kids and kids at heart - it makes dipping more fun," the company wrote on its Q&A page. "The four shapes we make Chicken McNuggets in was the perfect equilibrium of dipability and fun.

"Three would've been too few, five would've been wacky. We also make them similar in size to ensure consistent cooking times for food safety."

The fact that they have a Q&A page is good news, because we can actually get to the bottom of why they think a 'bow tie' and a 'bone' are interchangeable.
