KFC launches meatless chicken with Beyond Foods
What would Clarkson make of this?
Well, this is something I really didn't see coming. I am a huge chicken lover and especially the kind from KFC, so to hear this came as a bit of a surprise to me. You may think it is a bit odd to eat faux chicken at somewhere as well known for its chicken as KFC but maybe this is a good thing.
KFC have partnered up with Beyond Foods, a Los Angeles-based producer of plant-based meat substitutes. The aim for this is to support the rise of plant based substitutes for meat as the demand is becoming a lot stronger. The president of the company, Kevin Hochman said the following,"If you would have asked me six months ago, I would have said no, to be completely honest with you, because we're about fried chicken."
I have had quorn dishes before and to be honest, there can be some relatively nice ones kicking about. There was also that time you may remember when Jeremy Clarkson tried a meat free burger and he couldn't tell the difference. This was a big moment for meat free meats as Clarkson is a bit lover of beef.
This new plant based KFC 'chicken' will be available at just one KFC restaurant in Atlanta and will be available from today (Tuesday). KFC are also open to feedback as they would need to know whether to try out this new recipe in a few more restaurants. So, if you live in Atlanta, you better go and try this out.
