How much are you willing to pay for a chicken nugget from McDonald’s? ₹200? ₹300?
Well, this eBay user payed a whopping ₹73 lakhs for a single chicken nugget.
Why? Because this nugget, which was a part of the BTS meal, was shaped like a character from the popular game ‘Among Us’.
Sold by a user named ‘polizna’ from Utah, the chicken nugget’s bidding went on for two whole days on eBay. Before it was finally sold for USD 99,997 or ₹73 lakhs on the website. Reportedly, there are two things that made this nugget special. First, it was a part of the BTS meal, that fans from across the world covet and second, it was shaped like a character from ‘Among Us’.
@McDonalds split the cost with me or send me one for free!! ok thank u— Among Us (@AmongUsGame) June 1, 2021
According to the description, the final auction winner will receive the nugget, frozen and air sealed to “ensure freshness”. This, obviously made the nugget viral on Twitter.

And no, it’s not an NFT, this is a real nugget. Imagine if it was paired with some Szechuan Sauce.

I think the among us chicken nugget was an accident but I think an among us happy meal with crewmate shaped nuggets would be a best seller!— 🥀👑𝘜𝘭𝘵𝘪𝘮𝘢𝘵𝘦 𝘋𝘦𝘮𝘰𝘯 𝘎𝘰𝘥𝘥𝘦𝘴𝘴🥀😈 (@Darketta_aq) June 6, 2021
Regardless, that’s a lot of money for a single chicken nugget. Especially one you wouldn’t even eat?
