A woman went viral on TikTok after placing an order for 40 McNuggets for $11 and a basket of fries—leaving those who’ve never heard of such an order at the fast-food chain perplexed.
The video features user @mrs.isenhart2019 as she places an order via McDonald’s drive-thru. She asks the McDonald’s employee if they offered anything larger than a 20-piece nugget, and the worker suggested a 40-piece nugget.
In addition to the chicken nuggets, @mrs.isenhart2019 ordered a “basket of fries” and a “blue raspberry slushie.” The total came out to $18.25, and her son was shocked by how “cheap it was.” After receiving their bag, the content creator zooms in on the receipt, showing the total costs of $11.19 for the McNuggets and $3.99 for a basket of fries.
@mrs.isenhart2019 added in the caption, “When your kids ask for chicken nuggets you get them nuggets.”

While the menu item is listed on McDonald’s website, the basket of fries is only available at select locations and began rolling out in Nashville, TN, Chattanooga, TN, Huntsville, AL, and Bowling Green, KY, in late 2019, according to Delish. It’s unclear what locations currently offer baskets of fries.
