Starting on Dec. 1st, McDonald’s chains in Niigata Prefecture will be offering a 48-piece bucket of McNuggets for 1,800 yen ($15). If you’re counting, that’s eight more than the 40 piece McNugget bucket that’s available in the US.

The deal is part of a promotional tie-in for a idol pop group called NGT48, which is an off-shoot of the super popular idol group, AKB48.

NGT48 sounds a lot like “Nugget 48” after all.

When you purchase a 48-nugget set, you’ll receive a promotional container that’s decorated with images of NGT48 members. Chains in the area will also offer paper tray covers and limited-edition, collectible commemorative cards with each order.

The promotional sale will continue until those Niigata chains run out of the special packages.

After watching Master sushi chef Hiroyuki Terada perform a work of art in the video below, I’m convinced that a Big Mac is better in sushi form.

Master chef Terada transformed the burgers while still using all of the original ingredients—everything, from the buns to the patty make an appearance in the final dish.

To celebrate the return of the McRib, and probably achieve a level of viral glory, YouTuber “LtMkilla” decided to stack 10 on top of each other and consume them all at once. As you’ll see, the process involved emphatically declaring his love and getting his eat on in a pretty annoying and NSFW way.

On Tuesday, McDonald’s U.S. President Mike Andres announced that the chain’s new mini cheese sticks will be added to their dollar menu nationwide in 2016.

Reaction was swift:

The move came after the mozzarella sticks were successfully tested at select restaurants earlier this year. To be honest, I’m not even sure why they bothered with the test. I mean, three cheese sticks for a buck. Duh.

For some reason, YouTuber Matt Stonie thought it would be interesting to deep fry a McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish sandwich eight times and then eat it.

The process is revealed in the video after the jump, which shows the steps of batter, fry, repeat over and over again until the result looked something like a football on a bun. He then ate layers of pure fried batter, made his way to the tiny fish core, and continued until there was nothing left.

Viewers will no doubt find his thin frame just as surprising as his ability to stomach this thing.

international peace day mcwhopper

We all know that Burger King and McDonald’s have been bitter rivals for decades. The Big Mac vs. Whopper debate is just one of many in the battle known as the “Burger Wars”.

Surprisingly, Burger King extended an olive branch to their competitor and suggested they call a cease fire and work together to sell a McWhopper hybrid burger. It would be available for one-day-only in honor of Peace One Day, a nonprofit group that works to raise awareness of the International Day of Peace.

BK set up a fantastic website with the proposal at and took out full-page ads in both the New York Times and Chicago Tribune with an open letter to McDonald’s. Honestly, it’s pretty amazing and all McDonald’s would need to do is say “yes.”

Unfortunately, it turns out that giving peace with BK a chance isn’t what Mickey D’s had in mind.

We can only assume McDonald’s employee Garrett either really needs money (he does work at McDonald’s after all), or really needs attention – because he was willing to lick a grease trap for $5. As if that wasn’t enough, he did it twice.

That’s a whopping $2.50 per lick. I wouldn’t lick a grease trap for anything under $50. I have standards.

Watch the grossness after the jump.

minion toy

McDonald’s is under fire for its new Minion Happy Meal toy which appears to say “What the f*ck?!” whenever it’s turned on and tapped. So what the f*ck happened? The fast food chain responded by saying that “Minions speak ‘Minionese,’ which is a random combination of languages and nonsense words.”

McDonald’s also told THR that the Caveman Minion is actually saying: “para la bukay,” “hahaha,” and “eh eh.”

Check out the NSFW demonstration after the jump and decide for yourself.

McDonald’s is struggling financially, but their packaging design game is strong. Back in May they debuted a takeout bag that turns into a serving tray, and now they’ve developed a takeout container that’s designed specifically for cyclists.

Created by ad agency Tribal Buenos Aires in Argentina, the “McBike” container can be transported on the handlebars of a bike, and it can securely hold a burger, drink and fries.

The McBike debuted in Copenhagen, Denmark, and then it popped up in Medellin, Colombia. The next step, apparently, is to introduce the container to cities that are known for being bike friendly (like Amsterdam and Tokyo). While I haven’t actually seen a cyclist pop into a McDonalds drive-thru before, it seems as though McDonald’s is starting to encourage the idea. Maybe we’ll see it in Portland sometime soon.
