Kentucky Fried Chicken just had one exciting launch in its famous chicken-scented yule log, and now there’s another launch coming fans’ way.
The new Beyond Fried Chicken is designed to taste just like the brand’s original and will be available in six or 12-piece options with a choice of honey BBQ, ranch, honey mustard, or KFC sauce. You’ll also be able to order the vegetarian chicken as a combo meal with fries and a medium drink.
This isn’t the first time KFC has launched plant-based chicken. It actually released the Beyond Fried Chicken for a limited time in Atlanta in Aug. 2019. It sold out in just five hours. Then, in 2020, the brand and plant-based food creator expanded the food’s availability by testing it in Nashville and Charlotte. Now, it’s finally getting its nationwide release.
“The mission from day one was simple — make the world-famous Kentucky Fried Chicken from plants. And now over two years later we can say, ‘mission accomplished,'” said Kevin Hochman, president of KFC U.S. in a press release.
