YO, Vegetarians this is for you! KFC will be whipping up meat-free “chicken” to serve in the UK as more and more people crave the need for veggie diets.
Colonel Sanders has been readying us for something incredible! The Bargain Bucket that is KFC is planning to roll out its new vegetarian range in its British restaurants in 2019 — after trials began early in the year.
You’re wondering, worried even about the taste right? Well don’t be scared, KFC assures all chicken connoisseurs and fast food fanatics that their alternative to “meat” shall still be coated in the Colonel’s famous seasoning of the 11 herbs and spices.
A spokesperson spoke about the new dish:
“Development of the recipe is still in its very early stages, and so the options we’re exploring in our kitchen are still top secret”.
“Once we’ve perfected the recipe we aim to test with customers this year, and if all goes well, we hope to launch a new vegetarian option in 2019.”
The new Veggie edition to the menu comes as the fast food giant plans to attack and cut calories by 20 percent per serving in their meals over the next seven years to tackle Britain’s big obesity crisis.
With more than one in four adults sit in the UK obese category, which is up from just 15 percent 25 years ago. KFC hope this addition fixes a big problem.
The vegetarian “chicken” will still offer the “great taste of KFC to new and existing customers who are changing their dining habits”, KFC added. KFC insist that the veggie chicken will be much healthier than its standard range of chicken.
This really is an incredible much-needed progression in the world of fast-food, health, and dietary needs. KFC is doing what they can to accommodate every person needs while making their food healthier, which is much needed. let’s just hope everyone else takes notice and follows through.
