Earlier in the week, you could get a 50 piece Chicken McNuggets at all Magic Valley McDonald’s for just $9.99. We bought 200.
It’s unclear where the idea came from–It could have been KOOL 96.5′s Nate Bird, or News Radio 1310 KLIX’s James Tidmarsh–but 95.7 KEZJ’s Brad Weiser answered the challenged and 95.7 KEZJ’s Terry West tagged along for the ride (despite not having a gallbladder) and there was a Chicken McNugget eating contest.
The rules were simple:
- Each contestant was presented with 50 Chicken McNuggets.
- We had 30 minutes to finish.
How did we do?
It turns out that 50 Chicken McNuggets is actually a lot.
Terry West wussed out first with only 25 nuggets down (hey, the guy doesn’t have a gallbladder, give him a break). Nate Bird and Brad Weiser held on to tie for second place with 37 nuggets. And the skinny guy, News Radio 1310 KLIX’s James Tidmarsh, trounced everyone else with 47 nuggets eaten in 30 minutes.
