Have You Ever Wondered What The McDonald’s Purple Blob Is Supposed To Be?

If you’re a millennial, you’ll probably remember ALL of the McDonald’s characters…not just Ronald McDonald!

So you probably remember the Hamburglar and Grimace. But people started to question what exactly Grimace was…

So what exactly is this big purple blob? We just assumed it was…a blob, nothing more…

Turns out…he’s a…taste bud. Oh yes, you heard me right. A taste bud…..WHAT?!

I mean, why? I need to know who came up with this idea to make a taste bud a lovable character!

Welp, my childhood memories are wonky now. Did you know this about Grimace?
