KFC is launching vegan “Beyond Chicken” nuggets and boneless wings tomorrow, August 27th! The new items are 100% plant-based and made by IPO superstar Beyond Meat.
Beyond Meat already makes burgers, sausages and ground-beef (all of which are scrumptious!), and they’re working on vegan bacon, too!
Vegan chicken samples will be given out for free with the purchase of other items at KFC. And, according to a KFC spokesperson, “Customer feedback from the Atlanta test will be considered as KFC evaluates a broader test or potential national rollout.”
So, if you live anywhere near Smyrna, Georgia, located near Atlanta’s SunTrust Park, try to swing by for a taste!
The more positive feedback, the merrier… for the animals, the environment, and the overall wellness of the world!
And, if you want more than a sample, not to worry!
KFC will offer Beyond Fried Chicken in two forms: nuggets or boneless wings, each available in six or 12-piece combo meals. The wings cost $1 each ($6 for a half-dozen and $12 for a dozen), and the nuggets are $6.49 for six and $8.49 for 12. Customers can buy four plant-based chicken nuggets a la carte for $1.99, according to CNN.
