While everyone recognizes Ronald McDonald as the lead mascot for McDonald’s, there’s actually an entire cast of characters that inhabit McDonaldland.

Other characters, however, are harder to pin down. For example, Grimace is a clumsy purple blob. McDonald’s doesn’t offer purple blobs on its menu.
An award-winning McDonald’s manager from Canada recently revealed that Grimace is a giant taste bud, CBC reports. Brian Bates works as a manager for a location in Windsor and was recently named Outstanding Manager of the Year for Canada.
