A MACDONAL’S worker has revealed what he really does when a customer asked for fresh chicken nuggets – and people aren’t happy about it.
One TikToker has jokingly revealed his dirty little secret to making old chicken nuggets taste fresh again.
@bigjettyfunny posted a clip of him revealing the cooking hack in a short clip that’s already had 1.2 million views and some 1,600 comments.
In it, the McDonald’s employee can be seen handling some chicken nuggets near a deep fryer with overlay text saying: “When a customer asks for fresh nuggets…”
He then put the nuggets into a frying basket and writes: “Just re-drop them. Good as fresh ones”.
“At least [they’re] hot and crispy,” he captioned the video.
Fellow TikTokers weren’t so sure about the frying short-cut.
One user wrote: “I’ll honestly be fine with that, fresh as fast food to me is hot. I just don’t want cold food.”
Another added: “Cold McDonald’s nuggets in the air fryer for 4 minutes on 375, even better than fresh.”
“Man, I don’t even care as long as they hot and not hard as rocks,” a third posted.
Others weren’t so sure.
“You can tell when something is re-dropped,” one follower chimed in.
“I’ll just go back, get my fresh nuggets and then notify the manager for free coupons,” another added.
The Sun has contacted McDonald’s for comment.
