Most of the mainstream take away food franchises have chicken nuggets somewhere on the menu. But only Red Rooster thought to be a little different. They really broke the mould with this one, filled the chicken nuggets with cheese and sprinkled sesame seeds over the batter. Pure genius! In appreciation of this subtle difference and in honour of them straying away from the pack of conformed nuggets, my friend and I thought we should attempt to eat 100.
Oh and to paint the picture clearly, 100 chicken nuggets as a combined effort. And yes I hear your little thoughts, some of you are thinking, 50 nuggets each? That’s easy, anyone can eat 50 nuggets! We thought exactly the same thing until…..well until we didn’t.
So we arrive at the drive through window of Red Rooster and ask for 100 cheesy nuggets. According to the Red Rooster guy we apparently had the munchies…false…what I did have though was a large rice meal beforehand which could definitely hinder my chances of completing the challenge.
So we get home and pour a mountain of cheesy nuggets onto a large serving dish and begin. We count each CCN as we eat it.
1..2…3…nom nom nom.
4..6..8….this is going to be a breeze, we should have got more. 11…12…17..my tastebuds are officially immune to the flavour of processed chicken.
19…20…22 at this point my strategy is to cease all sips and dips, no sipping drink and no sporadic dips in sauce. There’s not enough stomach room. 23…24…25…I am full to the brim, they’re getting difficult to eat and I’m feeling dizzy, can….barely….move.
I stay on chicken nugget 27 for 5 minutes and eat it bit by bit. I slowly power through to nugget 28 and must stop. I was convinced that if I took one more bite, my intestines would literally explode and the damages would be fatal. Death by a chicken nugget? No sir.
My friend troops right through to nugget 37 but barfs three times on the way…eewww…but then you’ve got to admire her determination.
It was oh sooo funny but it’s a silly idea and I had a stomach-ache for hours. Don’t try this at home.
Everthing in moderation is easy to achieve when you’ve bought a reasonable amount of chicken nuggets to begin with. When there are large quantities of food available, sometimes you feel it’s your duty to consume as much as humanly possible, but knowing your limits can be the difference from a fantastic night to a regretful one. Make the right choice.
