SALISBURY, MD. - To help consumers celebrate the holiday during this unusual year, Perdue has launched PERDUE ThanksNuggets, a limited-time offering that packs all the best flavors of Thanksgiving into two nuggets: Breaded Breast Meat Turkey Nuggets and Breaded Dark Meat Turkey and Cranberry Nuggets.
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.
Beginning at 12 p.m. EST on Nov. 13, in honor of Perdue Farms' 100th anniversary, 100 bags of the limited-edition️ ThanksNuggets will be available for sale on PerdueFarms.com for $19.20, a nod to the company's founding year.
The 24-ounce package includes separately wrapped dark and white meat nuggets. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, 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, NC.
"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,” said Tracy Hostetler, VP of Marketing, Premium Prepared Foods. “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.”
