Thanksgiving packed into two premium bites? Sign me up! Perdue is rolling out a new offering for the holidays that is sure to wow consumers: PERDUE® ThanksNuggets. This limited-edition offering packs all the best flavors of Thanksgiving into two types of nuggets: Breaded Breast Meat Turkey Nuggets and Breaded Dark Meat Turkey and Cranberry Nuggets.
"Thanksgiving is going to look very different this year, and we know there's a lot of cooking fatigue out there right now, so we thought we'd have a little fun with it by launching our limited edition ThanksNuggets. Whether you're celebrating on your own or just downsizing your feast, PERDUE ThanksNuggets pack your favorite flavors of the holiday into two effortlessly delicious turkey nuggets," said Tracy Hostetler, VP of Marketing, Premium Prepared Foods. "Forget the hours of prep, the brining, the roasting, the mountain of dishes, the fancy place settings: this year is all about having a 'LazyGiving.' Whether you prefer white or dark meat turkey, our ThanksNuggets have got you covered so you can still enjoy your favorite holiday flavors without all the effort."
The drumstick-shaped dark meat nugget is inspired by traditional sides like cranberry sauce and stuffing, while the turkey-shaped white meat nugget is inspired by everyone's favorite Thanksgiving vegetable: sweet potato.
The 24 oz package includes separately wrapped dark and white meat nuggets that are sure to make Thanksgiving dinner and leftovers preparation one less thing to stress about in 2020.
In the spirit of giving, Perdue Farms will also donate protein to provide Thanksgiving meals for 500 Junior Enlisted Members and Families of the 82nd Airborne Division at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, as stated in a press release. Since March, Perdue has donated more than two million pounds of protein to support local food banks and relief efforts as well as first responders and frontline healthcare workers amid the pandemic through its "Delivering Hope To Our Neighbors" initiative.
