Nobody likes a wise guy. But sometimes it’s very handy to share facts that nobody else knows. Especially when the facts are not meant to point someone in the right direction, but rather to share fun knowledge. That’s why we’re sharing some facts that perhaps you would have liked to have known before!
An expensive chicken nugget
Did you know that, for example, a Chicken McNugget was once sold through the sales channel, eBay, for $8,100? And why was this chicken nugget worth so much? It was because it looked like George Washington’s head. By the way, the chicken nugget was already three years old when 23 people had bid on the chicken nugget. The owner, Rebekah Speight, spent the money on a local church to go to summer camp with a group of children.

Besides the fact that McDonald’s Happy Meals are of course very popular all over the world, so is the famous clown. Ronald McDonald is known by more than 96% of children worldwide. This makes him even more famous than Santa Claus. Although there have been rumors lately that Ronald McDonald might disappear, the CEO recently announced that this is not the case, much to the relief of many children.
Giga Big Mac
McDonald’s also once built a hamburger that was even bigger than a Big Mac. The Giga Big Mac was first sold in Japan. It was basically two Big Macs stacked on top of each other, but it looked like a big Giga Big Mac. This hamburger was mainly sold to people who wanted to share it.
