Head office for KFC has announced the unthinkable! Vegan… chicken?
The fast-food fried bird giant is testing, and a big emphasis on TESTING, a new beyond meat chick’un’ nuggets! The test will only occur at a single location, in Atlanta, GA, on August 27th.
This isn’t the first forray into the veggie/vegan world for the company as in the UK, there was a a “fake” chicken burger made of mushrooms called the “imposter”.
The chick’un nuggets will be offered TWO different ways:
- Naked, with your choice of dipping sauce on the side.
- “Winged” which will be tossed in a sauce of your choice. (Vegans, if you do go, avoid the honey-based dips).
The move could be seen as a way for KFC to keep up with other fast food chains such as Burger King, A&W, Pizza Pizza, Timmie and Mucho Burrito, all who have added plant-based options on their menu.
PLENTY of people chimed in on twitter, including these users:
Non-vegans: eating meat is my choice, please respect it
Vegans: yay KFC vegan nuggets 🙌
Non-vegan: I’m no longer gonna go to KFC because vegans have a choice on the menu

With all of this in mind, IF it comes to Canada, would you stop in to give it a sample?
I would, no hesitation.
