Here's How Many Actual Nuggets The Viral Chicken Nugget Kid Has Eaten In A Year

Definitely more than you've eaten in your whole life. That's for sure.
Let's all remember back to 2017. It was a simpler time. Back then, you could ask a fast food chain for a year's supply of chicken nuggets and they might actually come through.
Last year, Carter Wilkerson became the most retweeted person of all time when his request for a year's supply of free Wendy's chicken nuggets went viral.

Although Carter didn't reach the goal of 18 million retweets, Wendy's did come through in the clutch and give him the nuggets anyway. The fast food chain also donated $100,000 in Carter's name to the Dave Thomas foundation for adoption.
One year after that fateful request, Wendy's checked up on Carter to wish him a happy anniversary and see just how many nuggets he'd managed to eat.
Hey @carterjwm, Happy One Year Anniversary! Thanks for helping make this year extra weird. Just how many nuggets did you end up eating?— Wendy's (@Wendys) April 5, 2018
not quite sure, enough to put a few pounds on for sure 😂— Carter Wilkerson (@carterjwm) April 5, 2018
Carter didn't give an exact figure on Twitter, but he apparently told Metro that it was in the region of 400 nuggets. That is....a lot of chicken.
I don't think I've eaten 400 nuggets in my entire life. This man is a legend.
Despite holding the record for most retweeted tweet, Carter STILL hasn't reached the goal of 18 million.
Had a whole year and still didn't get to 18 million?— Wendy's (@Wendys) April 5, 2018
No worries, though. Carter estimates he'll reach his rather lofty goal within 4 years.
well, it’s been a year— Carter Wilkerson (@carterjwm) April 5, 2018
I’m at 3.6 million retweets
i need 18 million
at this rate it’ll only take 4 more years to reach my goal!
Good things come to those who wait, I guess. Congrats on the nuggets, Carter!
