KFC To Start Selling Meatless Fried Chicken

Have you always wanted meatless fried chicken, but you just couldn’t find it? KFC to the rescue!

Beyond Meat is teaming up with KFC for their plant based “fried chicken.”

More from CNBC:

KFC restaurants nationwide will add Beyond Meat’s plant-based chicken to its menus, starting Monday for a limited time.

The launch comes after years of testing from the Yum Brands chain and Beyond Meat to create a meat substitute that mimicked the taste and texture of whole muscle chicken, like chicken breast, rather than the ground-up consistency of nuggets.

Apparently, this was a very popular item when it it was tested in a limited release in Georgia, Tennessee and California. Now the Colonel is bringing his plant chicken to the entire country. Get it while it lasts.
