McDonald’s is Giving Everyone a 6-Piece McNuggets for $1 on April 27

Apparently there’s a specific set of McDonald’s Chicken McNugget personality types — and it’s all determined by a new quiz from The Golden Arches. I personally think I’m the ‘eat tf outta them’ type, but sadly, it’s not listed in the quiz.

McDonald’s new Chicken McNugget Personality Type Quiz determines four types, as shown below:

  • The Creative Type: You basically invented McNugget hacks. You were adding McNuggets to your sandwich before it was cool. IYKYK.
  • Sauce Superfan: You want dipping sauces with a side of McNuggets. You like to take your tastebuds on a flavor journey.
  • Shape Connoisseur: You believe there are superior McNugget shapes. There’s probably even a specific order you eat them in.
  • The Sharer: McNuggets are your love language. You order them as a side AND main so you can share a few with your friends and fam.

To help promote this new quiz, McDonald’s is giving everyone a 6-piece of McNuggets for $1 on April 27 only, exclusively on the brand’s app.

Lil Yachty Pulls Up To a McDonald’s To Show Appreciation To the Restaurant Crew

@lilyachty #ad Been a minute since I made a McChicken! I know how hard @mcdonalds ♬ original sound – lilyachty

We all love a good dose of wholesomeness on the news feed, so let’s dive right on in to this news of rapper Lil Yachty pulling up to a McDonald’s location in Atlanta to surprise and thank the restaurant crew.

Lil Yachty has a special place in his heart for McDonald’s, as he was once an employee. In the TikTok clip above we see Lil Boat dust off his McChicken making skills, chat with fans, take pictures and ultimately, show his appreciation to the crew for what they do and how they serve their community.

The video is due in part to McDonald’s new partnership with Yachty to kick off a new initiative, called Thank You Crew. It encourages fans to celebrate how crew and managers in their local restaurants are going above and beyond — then giving these outstanding employees their flowers with personal thank-you experiences.

Jack In The Box Trolls McDonald’s On World’s Largest Digital Billboard

“Ice cream machines that work. What a concept.”

“Don’t get McShammed. Get Jack’s new Mint Shake.”

Jack In The Box said the above with its whole chest, throwing 40,000 square feet of shade at McDonald’s for the latter brand’s perpetually broken ice cream machines — all on the world’s largest digital billboard.

McDonald’s faulty ice cream machines have long been a running joke in the fast food world, so much so that website McBroken.com was developed to track which ones are not working.

In an all out assault on Mickey D’s mechanical woes and to promote its limited edition Oreo Cookie Mint Shake, Jack In The Box has taken over McBroken.com for the month of March as well as trolled its ice cream machine-challenged nemesis on the largest digital billboard in the world — which just so happens to be right next to a McDonald’s location in Downtown Los Angeles.

Your move McDonald’s. This frosty feud can only heat up.
