Did you know. . .

that McDonald's first began selling their Chicken McNuggets in 1980?  The reason that they began selling these little morsels goes back to 1977 when the federal government's dietary guidelines suggested that people should eat less fat, especially red meat.  This caused the sales of hamburgers to decrease so the executives of McDonald's hired a European chef (who actually cooked for the Queen of England) to come up with a chicken dish.  With lots of failed experiments, the chicken McNugget was born.  You can read more of the details at this link:  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/12/31/the-father-of-the-chicken_n_2388347.html.

that the first McNugget commercial aired in 1983?  Check it out here.

that sauces for McDonald's McNuggets included a tangy cranberry sauce with a twist of orange and a sweet apple sauce spiced with cinnamon?  Watch their holiday commercial to see for yourself:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFfm1vWzmT0.
