Meet the New Fried Chicken by KFC: 100% Chicken-Free and Vegan!

KFC is surely one of the most popular and widely-loved fried chicken restaurants! But did you know that they’ve recently announced that they’ll serve a 100% chicken-free and vegan fried “chicken”?

This upcoming menu, called Beyond Fried Chicken, launches all over the United States on January 10, as part of KFC’s collaboration with Beyond Meat, a plant-based meat company. 

Beyond Fried Chicken is actually a plan that KFC has had for over 2 years that has been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. They wanted to develop an exclusive vegan menu. With the rise of vegan, plant-based diets and healthy lifestyle movements, KFC wants to be a part of that too.

How will it look and taste like? Well, according to KFC, their vegan “chicken” will look like a chicken nugget or chicken finger. This menu will only be sold for a limited time, and KFC is confident that many people will join the hype to try out their first meatless chicken.

KFC is not the first famous fast food chain to introduce plant-based meals. Previously, Taco Bell and Dunkin Donuts USA have also served vegan options.

If this menu were available in KFC Indonesia, would you dare to try it?
