Limited time deal; it was the regular McNuggets but came with teriyaki sauce, sweet and sour, and mustard sauces. They also gave you chop sticks with them.

Can anyone tell me if this was linked to a movie promotion? It seems like it was, but I was super young.

"Mulan" came out in the late 90's, while these came out in the mid 80's, they just brought them back briefly for the movie promo.

This is where the hot mustard sauce came from! They kept it, and the sweet and sour, after this promo.

I'm not crazy then! It seemed like I was the only one who remembered the teriyaki sauce and the chopsticks.

I vaguely remember this! I'm glad someone pointed out it wasn't just for Mulan since that was in the 90's...because I'm pretty darn sure I tried the Shanghai McNuggets sometime during the 80's, I remember the sauces and the chopsticks.

Don't forget you got a Mcfortune cookie with them too! And scout, this isn't where the hot mustard sauce originated- hot mustard was one of the original sauces that came out with nuggets in 83. Finally, look for the internet lurker Shanghai nuggets commercial on youtube with Benji from Alf!

My parents had divorced when I was 3. They were just reconciling when this came out. I remember my daddy trying to teach me how to use the chopsticks, while we all ate as a family. My folks died way too young, but you brought back a wonderful memory for me.

Right...some McDonald's are releasing the Szechuan sauce to go with their McNugz for a limited time. Some only have 20 packets per store. This sauce originally came out in 1998 for the movie Mulan...totally diff from the 1980's Shanghai McNuggets!

No, scout, if that's your real name, they always had hot mustard and sweet & sour.
