      Saw this somewhere on the Web a few days ago - can't remember where. "Chicken" nuggets!! I've never tasted "chicken" nuggets and never had the desire to - I am even more determined not to now! smile

    It's mechanically de-boned chicken.  Mostly meat...along with some pulverized grissol, cartilage and loose bone.  Nothing new at all..you just don't get to see it before it ends up in some packaged food item.

    It's rendered as a paste-like filler, used in hot dogs, cat food, etc.

    Bet you just lost your appetite, didn't you? Mmmmmmm smile

    I saw a facebook group for that a couple of days ago.  Pretty gross huh?  It really did convince me not to eat fast food, or helped at least.  Looks like the secrets of fast food are finally coming out!

    this was highlighted in the uk a few years ago by Jamie Oliver who has revolutionised school meals- things such as turkey twizzlers made from goo have been stopped and now the schools serve real food.
    Our mc donalds serve real chicken in nuggets and goo is going- good idea to high light it

      Would prefer not to be overly graphic here but if you consider the reply from Timorous above: the, "Contents," of this substance are varied in colour and in texture. When they are combined by being essentially ground or crushed together, under high pressure, the resultant colour and texture is a mixture/blend of all the component parts...

        Well, I do not eat fast food, because when I eat I feel hungry in 20 minutes again! As if you are trying to deceive your stomach, and he says: no way,it's not food ,sorry, give me something else and quick.

    I will never set foot at Mcdonalds or any other fast food chain unless it's the last place on earth and I'm deadly hungry. I first thought that pink goo was ice cream.
