History of Nuggets
The presence of nuggets as we can enjoy today is inseparable from the history behind it.
Before being known as ‘nuggets’, this food which was first made using the main ingredients of chicken and flour was known as the main food in the United States after the 2nd world war.
When the 2nd world war took place, the consumption of chicken in United States of America soared sharply with meat consumption, however, after the 2nd world war ended, the demand for chickens dropped dramatically.
One of them is because of the notion that chicken is a heavy food ingredient, too much to eat alone but too little to share among the family. Over time, a man named Robert Carl Baker had the idea to make food made from chicken.
The food was called chicken nuggets in 1963. The size is as big as a human mouth, the taste is delicious, suitable as a snack or a filling meal. Finally, in 1983, McDonald’s also introduced nuggets as one of its menus.
Even though it is known as a food that was created by Robert Carl Baker, Robert did not patent his invention so that every restaurant in the United States could make this food as they like.
This food eventually became famous in various parts of the world, until it also entered Indonesia and now in Indonesia it comes with various other variants such as vegetable nuggets, indomie and so on.
