Once the meat has been ground up, it is then made into four different shapes and then after they have been cooked, the nuggets are frozen and shipped to their restaurants to be sold. It turns out that these shapes are actually geared towards children and 'shaped uniquely for kids and kids at heart’ because ‘it makes dipping more fun!'
