KFC is working on vegetarian 'fried chicken' and we're so down

Finger lickin' good?

In the world we live in, being a vegetarian or a vegan has never been easier.

From the countless dairy alternatives, to all the wonderfully delicious meat free options - it's a great time to be alive.

However, no matter how loyal a veggie you are, sometimes you can't help but crave something from your old life.

Hey, we don't judge.

Which is why we were SO excited to learn that KFC are working on a vegetarian 'fried chicken'.

The company announced that they are testing out  vegetarian options in Britain with its "signature blend of herbs and spices," according to The New York Times.

KFC released a statement saying that “development of the recipe is still in its very early stages, and so the options we’re exploring in our kitchen are still top secret."

The spokesperson for KFC didn't comment about whether or not the vegetarian fried chicken would be released globally. However if it's a success in the UK, no doubt it'll come our way.


“Once we’ve perfected the recipe, we aim to test with customers this year, and if all goes well, we hope to launch a new vegetarian option in 2019.”

Seems like AGES, but listen, good things come to those who wait.
