KFC To Begin Testing Vegetarian "Fried Chicken"

June 12, 2018

Kentucky Fried Chicken is stepping into the vegetarian meat game with the testing of a vegetarian option in their UK stores.

The recipe for the vegetarian chicken is currently in its early stages & "top secret" according to a company spokesman. They hope to test it with customers this year & to officially launch it in 2019.

If there is a more fitting day to remind people what makes my Original Recipe so timeless, then I need a new calendar insights team. #HerbsAndSpicesDay
