McDonald's Creating 'Golden' McNuggets

By: Amanda Kabbabe/Patrick Jones

McDonald's McNuggets are no doubt a brand staple: delicious, warm, crispy and, now, they're golden! Literally.

McDonald's Japan is taking a page out of Willy Wonka's book and packaging one golden nugget in a lucky winner's bag.

Well, the word "lucky" is subjective: the nugget is not edible, and the diner will be shorted one nugget.

However, it is worth about $1,500, which could buy a month's worth of nuggets.

The promotion is to celebrate several different McDonald's-related things. One cause is the introduction of two new dipping sauces: fruit cherry and creamy cheese.

They're also celebrating a new Japanese McDonald's character, The Nugget Thief.

To look for the golden nugget, simply follow McDonald's Japan on Twitter, and pay close attention to the clues the company is tweeting.

If you're just looking for some chicken in Japan, be careful before you chomp down on your next 4-piece. It could land you in the dentist's chair.
