From the moment that you open the Chairman's Tupperware and see his Butter Nuggets you know you're in for a treat. To be completely honest, it was unclear to me what these little critters were at first, but being an adventurous eater I dug right in. Man, oh man. The Chairman's Butter Nuggets reward you with a caramelized crunch and a mouth full of the eponymous fatty magic that made Paula Deen a sweaty superstar. All hail the Chairman's Butter Nuggets!
