If You've Ever Wanted A McDonald's Chicken Sandwich Rug, Now's Your Chance

"This throw rug really brings the whole ensemble together! Is this sheepskin or is it wool?" asks a hypothetical consumer. "It's neither! It's a Spicy Deluxe from Ronald's," an equally hypothetical buddy answers.

A strange conversation to be sure. After all, the idea of having McDonald's-themed furniture and décor in your home sounds almost like a late April Fool's prank, doesn't it? Who could imagine stepping on their McDonald's food instead of eating it? But that surreal thought may be a bit more real than you may think, as the multi-national burger chain has teamed up with one artist to bring a particular sandwich right into fans' living rooms.

According to Food & Wine, Madeline Ronzoni designs custom-made rugs in any given shape. Her TikTok account is filled with images of rugs that resemble Nike shoes, flowers, album covers, and animals, among other things. McDonald's has recently partnered with Ronzoni to create its newest pieces of merchandise: Crispy Chicken Sandwich Tufts. These soft sandwiches may not have the classic smell of fried chicken or french fries but are designed to capture the essence of a chicken sandwich from the Golden Arches down to the dripping scarlet sauce and golden brown bun. But how can fans capture one of these rugs?

Customers can buy a Chicken Sandwich rug in 3 styles

Just like customers have a choice when purchasing a Crispy Chicken Sandwich at McDonald's, they can also choose a style of rug sandwich to display in their homes. Per Golden Arches Unlimited, they can select the original Crispy Chicken Sandwich, the Spicy Chicken Sandwich, or if you're feeling particularly fancy, the Spicy Deluxe Chicken Sandwich, each sandwich designed to emulate their edible counterparts as much as possible. 

These items are being sold on McDonald's online shop for $65 dollars a rug. It is important to note, however, that McDonald's rugs are only "inspired" by Ronzoni's work, and according to Ronzoni herself in a TikTok video, "designs and materials may vary" from her own designs. The rugs will also be available until Sunday, April 24, according to Food & Wine, and customers should expect them to arrive four months after ordering. Clearly, McDonald's is hoping that fans will think these inedible sandwiches are worth the wait.
