"Among Us" is a video game that skyrocketed to fame back in September '20, gaining a large array of players. Since then, fanatics have kept their eyes out for any character-shaped food items, and boy has this one gone viral! eBay user Polizna got a limited-time BTS meal from McDonald's, and in it was this gem.
Many believe this nugget has a dome body and leg-like split, resembling a character from the video game. So, when it was found in the McD's meal, the buyer knew just what to do: log onto eBay. In the beginning, it was listed at a mere $0.99, but with one bidder's click of the mouse, the offer multiplied exponentially.
Two days after being posted, the chicken nugget was selling for $14,969.69. While many were shocked that the bidding reached this number, we're excited to share that the story didn't end there. Sold in a plastic bag accompanied by several packets of Szechuan sauce, the price increased...

In the end, the nugget sold for a whopping $99,997.00 plus shipping! The price may have reached nearly $100,000 due to the game's large increase in downloads since September 2020. Or the fact that the item was a part of a limited-edition meal focused on the K-Pop boy band group, BTS.
When purchased, the BTS meal came with a 10-piece chicken nugget box, Szechuan sauce, medium fries, and a Coke. But, according to eBay seller, Polizna, the special "Among Us" food item was frozen and air-sealed to secure "freshness" prior to and during travel to its new owner.
With almost $10K spent on a piece of food that could be eaten in a single bite, we can't help but wonder what the fate of the character-shaped nugget is. Will it be kept for eternity or enjoyed for dinner? While we ponder that, we've been scrolling through other "Among Us" fan-food-finds such as @Pizza0nTheRoof's potato!
