For years, McDonald’s lovers have wondered what Grimace, the purple pal of Ronald McDonald actually is, and today his identity has been revealed.
The New York Post reports that Brian Bates, the manager of a McDonald’s in Windsor, Canada, claims that Grimace is “an enormous taste bud”..yes, a taste bud.

Interesting though, the identity of Grimace was brought up years ago, and back then, McDonald’s had a different answer to what he is.
@janinegutierrez Grimace is the embodiment of a milkshake, though others still insist he's a taste bud. :)— McDonald's Corporation (@McDonaldsCorp) May 7, 2012
So what is Grimace really? We may never know.
