Onion Nuggets

The onion nuggets were a cross between onion rings and McNuggets. McDonald's attempted selling onion nuggets to please vegetarians in 1975, before selling the chicken McNuggets. The onion nuggets were unsuccessful though, since the customers could not be swayed by the more traditional onion ring variety. Also, McDonald's started selling the chicken McNuggets weeks later. It was introduced in 1975, and Discontinued in 1984.

The onion nuggets were later recreated by Mythical Kitchen.
