Thanksgiving celebrations this year are likely to look a little different, with smaller gatherings and less travel. To help consumers celebrate the holiday during this unusual year, PERDUE announced the launch of 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.
