Chicken nuggets are ubiquitous on fast food menus, were forever immortalized (and possibly made traumatizing) by the documentary about McDonald's, Super Size Me, and are now being reinvented by marketing gurus as a healthy source of lean protein. It may already seem like all that stays the same about chicken nuggets year to year is the animal they come from, but this month, Hip Chick Farms went one step farther out of the box and gilded the breaded lily—literally.

Billed as the first and only Golden Chicken Nugget in America, this brainchick of Hip Chick owners Chef Jennifer Johnson and Serafina Palandech is "made with certified, edible gold and with organic, non-GMO, natural, wholesome real chicken that's free range, and humanely-raised." A flight of nuggets rings in at $150 at the Hip Chick "chicken nugget tasting room" in Sebastopol, California.

As if the facts of the matter aren't over the top enough, the Hip Chick press release finishes with this nod to the absurd: "Oh, and these go great with Chef Bjorn Delacruz's viral 'golden donuts' and Snowopolis' 24-karat ice cream."
