It’s happening, folks!
According to Business Insider, KFC’s U.S. President, Kevin Hochman has made several appointments to discuss what “alternative protein looks like in a chicken.”
Hochman admits, it’s a new way of thinking for him:
“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.” KFC’s U.S. President Kevin Hochman
If KFC adds vegan chicken to it’s menu, it would be a victory for the animals, the environment, and human health, too!
Birds aren’t even covered under the “Humane Slaughter Act,” a title that doesn’t even make sense, I know.
And, for anyone who has ever been around chickens, you know, they’re cute as cute can be! Each with their own distinct personalities; I love chickens SO much!
If you think vegan chicken can’t be tasty, think again! Not only have companies developed scrumptious vegan chicken strips and “tenders” for stores and schools, many restaurants offer vegan fried chicken, too!
I know, I know; Chick’n and Waffles isn’t the healthiest of fare, but every now and then, I indulge a little! It’s healthier than eating a cholesterol laden, antibiotic and hormone infested dead bird though, that’s for sure!
Here’s hoping KFC starts making the switch! If you want to stay in the game, you’ve gotta get with the times.
It’s time to go vegan, baybee!
