Is quite usual that companies copy each others to sell their most popular products pretending it’s not the same. But sometimes shoppers realize about who copies who. This is what has recently happened at a Walmart shop, a shopper claimed to have found the same chicken nuggets that the famous one from McDonald’s but offered at the shopping mall.
The news about this popular food product has caused a stir on social media and left many consumers puzzled. The person behind this revelation is Nina Pool, a TikTok user known as @ghoulfluencer and we don’t know how many nuggets has tasted in her life to realize about the difference from on to the other so clearly.
Walmart’s Country Pride Chicken
In a video posted on the platform last Tuesday, Pool challenged McDonald’s, telling them they “cannot convince me that this is not the brand they fry“.
The video went viral, garnering over 593,600 views before being taken down on Friday. According to Pool, her husband purchased a package of Country Pride brand chicken nuggets at Walmart, and the similarity between these and what McDonald’s offers is astonishing.
Supermarket copies are cheaper than McDonald’s originals
Despite her surprise at the name Country Pride, which she finds “a bit racially insensitive”, Pool endorses the brand as legitimate and claims that a bag of these nuggets costs just 7 dollars, offering a substantial quantity. Reactions on social media were swift.
Commenters shared their opinions on video and personal experiences with McDonald’s nuggets and imitation products. Some expressed their love for nuggets, while others mentioned occasional quality issues. One comment suggested that the McDonald’s experience can be replicated at home, mentioning that “Aldi sells fast food fries that taste like McDonald’s when fried in oil.”
TikTok user ghoulfluencer promises a taste test to compare nuggetes
The debate over the authenticity of these Walmart nuggets has led some to call for empirical evidence. A commenter proposed a “taste test” to compare the two options. The influencer responded positively and promised to conduct the test as her followers on social media can get more information about the two nuggets brands.
Beyond the taste, quality and price there is always a difference between the original food from a restaurant or food chain and the copies at the supermarket and this is everything around eating. Is not the same making your own chicken nuggets at home or spending a day out with some friends or your family and having a “not every day the same” lunch.
Anyway, this discovery has left chicken nugget enthusiasts intrigued and with questions. Are Walmart’s nuggets truly identical to those of McDonald’s? The answer may lie in a future taste test that could unravel this culinary enigma.
