Are you in Japan? If yes, then you have a chance to win a golden nugget!

Clues are left by a yellow-suited ‘Nugget thief’ at McDonald’s stores across the country. Crack them and you could win the gold prize.

After suffering major losses due to several food scandals over the past few years, McDonald’s Japan is attempting to woo back customers with such irresistible offers, Rocket News 24 reported.

Last week, the company announced a creative photo competition with a pack of gold fries as the grand prize, and now the attention is turning to another item on the fast food chain’s side menu: Chicken McNuggets. The new campaign coincides with the introduction of two new limited-edition dipping sauces, Fruit Curry and Creamy Cheese, which will be available from June 8, the report said.

This summer, McDonald’s Japan will be showcasing a very special local Japanese product from the sunny prefecture of Miyazaki on the southern island of Kyushu. Called the hyuganatsu, the special citrus fruit takes its name from the area in which it originates, Hyuga, which is an old name for Miyazaki Prefecture, and natsu, the Japanese word for summer. The “Hyuga Summer” fruit is believed to be a hybrid between the pomelo and the Japanese yuzu citrus fruit, first appearing by chance in a garden in 1820. Now, the sweet and juicy, yet slightly sour fruit is one of the region’s most famed products, and is set to appear as the star ingredient in the next hotly anticipated McFlurry release from McDonald’s Japan. The Hyuganatsu Cheesecake McFlurry contains a creamy, soft ice cream, blended with a special sauce made with fresh hyuganatsu from Miyazaki that perfectly captures all the sweet, sour and fragrant notes of the Japanese citrus.
