Probably Not Coming Back

So I made a call to McDonald’s and asked them if onion nuggets were available in any location. The representative I talked to told me he had never heard of them before, and so I started to fear that our dream was dying or already dead. He then told me he found a reference to them in the system—some footnote or something. All it said was “text removed from menu in ‘79”. He wasn’t sure about the date, but that was his best guess (I guess it was a scanned form or something printed). I asked him if there were any “plans to bring onion nuggets back.” He told me if their only mention was a footnote on some page, there were probably no plans to bring them back.

So, loyal fans and want-to-be fans, all we can do is hope…but the outlook, to quote an 8-ball, is not good.

From Wikipedia:

Onion Nuggets - introduced at the same time as the Beefsteak Sandwich as the side item for the Dinner Menu. Onion Nuggets were chopped onions shaped into small solid pieces, dipped in batter and deep-fried.

I just found out about these and am wondering why they aren’t still around. I mean, come on, they are probably awesome, they are probably cheap to make, and they can’t be that expensive. Together we shall resurrect the onion nugget!
