Chicken Nuggets

I saw this photo from the Bar Resident Doc where I traced it back to "Early Onset of Night".

Initially, I thought this was soft candy filling only to realise how wrong I was. This is actually chicken nuggets before molding them into the nuggets shapes that we are more familiar with.

"...because it’s crawling with bacteria, it will be washed with ammonia, soaked in it, actually. Then, because it tastes gross, it will be reflavored artificially. Then, because it is weirdly pink, it will be dyed with artificial color..."

In previous years, there was an urban myth going around saying that the farmers managed to genetically modified chicken until they were born without bones, beaks, feet or feathers, just so that it is easier and more efficient to produce the nuggets.

Well, that we know is untrue and here comes this pink gooey stuff which is just as incredible as the urban legend except this one actually has the possibility of being real.

So how? You still gonna eat 'em nuggets?

Two things in this world that you don't let people see how you make: Laws, and Sausages (or in this case, nuggets):P

i dun tink it's real. IMHO, the human tastebuds hasn't come to a point that it won't tingle when in touch with food laden with chemicals. i've tasted a few artificially reconstituted sea cucumbers with (i think) borax in my life so far and ordered mom to throw the whole pot away.

my tongue just wrinkle up and refuse to push it into the oesophagus.

remember the times those bright, vividly colored lollipops/candies was the vogue years ago? i tried one b4, it tasted a tad chemical-bitter under all the horrible numbing sweetness.

though i do agree fast food should be better done, not laden with fillers + flavourings.

starmist: I'll still eat it coz my tummy is a rubbish bin anyway.

Arrenn: There are a lot more things that you REALLY don't want to see how they prepare. Especially here in QQland.

Ah Fry: This type of thing hard to say. 道高一尺, 魔高一丈. As many as there are things that you are able to red flag, there are probably just as many that slipped under your radar into your little tum tum.

Hard to say. Hard to say.
