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.
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.
