McDonald’s mystery: What is Grimace?
(CNN) – Ever wondered what McDonald’s Grimace character is supposed to be?
If you need a refresher, he’s the purple guy who hangs out with Ronald McDonald.
A McDonald’s employee, who won “outstanding manager of the year,” is behind recent Grimace guesses.
He told Canadian news outlet CBC that Grimace is a huge, purple … taste bud.
But the chain won’t confirm that.
It tells USA Today that Grimace is whatever people want him to be, even if that’s just a weird purple blob.
The McDonald’s social media folks are having fun with the Grimace debate.
They’ve updated the company’s Twitter profile to say, “Grimace is a close personal friend of mine.”
In a tweet, the social media team lamented that people always ask what Grimace is – and not how he is.
