Food News: Stuffing My Face at McDonald’s for Charity

The McNugget Challenge:

Well, cats out of the bag. My good friend Steve (diversions columnist for the Utah Statesman) and I are embarking on an epic men vs. food challenge, as we intend to see who can eat the most McDonald’s McNuggets in one sitting*. Once more, we’re going to do it (and I quote Yoda; there is no try) for charity, with any of the proceeds we collect going the Cache Valley Food Bank here in Logan, Utah. Our local McDonald’s has been kind enough to furnish the fried, mechanically separated meat morsels for us, although no videos or photos of our feat will be allowed. Considering that this is likely going to end very ugly for one of us, that may not be such a bad thing. Wish me luck!

How many McNuggets could you take down in one sitting???

*Not including sauces of our choice, and/or copious amounts of ketchup and salt packets.

    What is your McNugget sauce of choice?

    I’d probably tap out at around 14 🙁

  2. Robby says:

    I could eat about 100 of those delicious little morsels.

  3. Nick T says:

    Most I’ve ever eaten at once: about 12
    Most I can eat: probably 20

    How are you raising/collecting donations?

  5. Manavee says:

    Don’t use sauces. Would Joey Chestnut use a sauce? Of course not.

    Oh, I bet I could do 50 on an empty stomach.

  6. Considering that I did fifty Spicy Chicken Nuggets from Wendy’s in an eating challenge with my friends, I’m going to go ahead and start the bidding for myself and say I could do a minimum of fifty McNuggets. The only reason I stopped on the Spicy Chicken Nuggets is because we ran out. LOL.

    I recently ate 38 out of the 50 piece boxes they were selling. I opted for the combo so I got two large fries a large soda to wash it down with…

    And Hot Mustard is the way to go.

  8. VJ_Ostrowski says:

    I’ve done 50 in one sitting. I really had to choke down the last 10. It wasn’t the quantity that was the problem though. Rather, the fact that the last 10 had cooled off so much that they were even more disgusting than usual.

  9. rob says:

    I think I could do forty without pushing myself. I can eat like nobody’s business.

    The trick would be not to overdue the dipping sauces. You want enough to make the foul little thing palatable, but not so much that you wind up downing 8 ounces of sauce.

    Also take real small sips of beverage.

  10. Patrick says:

    Maybe like 20, like I love em, but I get full kinda easy haha. Sauce would have to be BBQ, or buffalo, if they have it.

  11. Vanessa says:

    I’d say I could eat about 25-20. I remember back when I was in middle school, my mom used to get my brother and I a 20 piece to split often. I’d eat my ten and could def eat more even with my fries. I def love to have copious amounts of ketchup with them!! Good luck!! Too bad Wendy’s isn’t doing it, cause their chicken nuggets are better in my opininon.

  12. Vanessa says:

    Oops!! I meant to type 15-20, not 25-20. Sorry!!

  13. Min says:

    God, I could probably do 50 in one sitting, and be fine. I used to be able to eat the 20 pcs alone in one sitting and still have room for an order of fries.

    And I love the nuggets cold. I don’t know why.

  14. Patrick says:

    Honestly, I could probably scarf down about 30 before collapsing. The first 5 or 10 nuggets seem like a good idea, but anything I eat after that is because I HAVE TO finish the damned things!

    McDonalds is like that for me; I get an insatiable craving, the first bites are amazing and then about halfway through, I realize how I don’t really like it anymore, lol

  15. Shannon says:

    I’m so proud of you Adam. You are helping out a charity. I think I could eat at least 30 myself.

  16. Francois says:

    I really hope the “autograph sessions” comment was a joke and you guys aren’t turning into little prima donnas.

    • Ryan says:

      I have zero to do with this McNugget challenge for charity that is happening over 2,000 miles away from me… that said, Adam is obviously being sarcastic.

      ps: Send me your address Francois and I’ll get a signed 8×10″ of me in the mail to you. 🙂
