By Marc Summy –

The 50-piece chicken McNugget challenge has become very popular with high schoolers.

For the small price of $9.99 at McDonalds, one can buy 50 chicken McNuggets. Teens have been flocking with their friends to try this challenge.

Students agree it’s for pride, bragging rights and a sense of manhood.

Although not everyone who consumes this challenge is a male.

Maddy Hess, an 18-year-old female, consumed all fifty of the nuggets.

“Barely,” she added.

Among the males was student, Alex Kirk.

One word to describe this challenge was “terrible,” according to Kirk.

“I did it for bragging rights,’ stated Kirk. He went on to say, “the lacrosse team doubted me.”

The ultimate challenge, which not as many people know about, is the 50 nuggets, 2 large fries, and 2 large cokes all for the price of $14.99.

Sophomore, Travis Wells, tried the ultimate challenge.

“It was pretty bad,” he explained.

After finishing his 2 large fries, 2 large cokes, and 49th nugget he just had one more to go.

“I just swallowed it; no second thoughts,” said Wells.

The student agreed that this was a bad idea due to the fact that right after swallowing the last nugget his “ultimate challenge” came right back up.

“The rest of the weekend I couldn’t even think about chicken McNuggets,” said Wells with a disgust look on his face.
