KFC will soon serve up Beyond Meat Chicken at its 4000 U.S. locations

Sofrito Lovers,


The Impossible and Beyond Meat craze is still growing!  Starting today, KFC will feature meatless Chicken Nuggets for our vegan and vegetarian familia-for a limited time.  Will this be a new taste sensation or the biggest flop of 2022?  Let's see!


Posted last week on Eater.com, this article by Kenny Torrella, announces the coming of the next meatless wonder (or blunder) to join our ever-growing fast food culture.  Are you ready for it?  I know I am not.  I have no clue how this will taste, but I am entering the fray with an open mind and stomach, and with boundless optimism.


Within the past 2 years, I have taste-tested most of the meatless fast food items.  Some were good and others tasted like old shoe leather-it can be hit or miss.  Did any of these items inspire me to forego the meat-based option forever?  Hell, no!  Most of these meatless products were mediocre at best.  Some of their textures were off, or the after-taste was highly unpleasant-my diplomatic way of saying NASTY AF!


Still, I will try these new nuggets and post a review here and on my YouTube channel.  Look for that post within the next 2 weeks.


Go taste for yourself!  ¡Buen Provecho!


The biggest fast food rollout of meatless fried chicken is happening next week

Over the last few years, meatless meat has gone mainstream, in large part due to the popularity of plant-based burgers from Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods that taste more like beef than the veggie burgers of the past.


Now, plant-based chicken is getting its turn in the spotlight. Starting January 10, Beyond Fried Chicken will be available at KFC’s nearly 4,000 US locations, the first — and biggest —nationwide rollout of plant-based poultry at a major chicken chain. It will be served as part of a combo meal, or in six- or 12-piece orders. (KFC says the six-piece order will start at $6.99 but may vary by location. For comparison, an eight-piece order of Chick-fil-A chicken nuggets cost $8.39 at a location near me in Maryland.)


Beyond Meat already has a plant-based chicken tender available in thousands of grocery stores and restaurants, but this product is slightly different and, to my mind (and taste buds), a big improvement. It might even be the best plant-based chicken product on the market.


Beyond Fried Chicken will be available for a “limited time only, while supplies last.” But Kevin Hochman, CEO of KFC, says he’s optimistic it will be a sustainable success.
