There's an imposter in the Colonel's ranks and the old fool isn't doing anything about it, which is great news for vegans who want the KF without the C.
The new Imposter burger is a chicken-free baby that's the product of KFC and Quorn, coated in the Colonel’s Original Recipe herbs and spices, doused in vegan mayo, and served in a glazed bun with a bit of lettuce. It's being trialled for four weeks in restaurants in London, Bristol, and the Midlands from June 17.
“A vegan KFC? We couldn’t believe it either. But we’ve done it – working with KFC we’ve created a bespoke Quorn fillet that does the Colonel’s recipe justice. We have no doubt that KFC fans are going to love the modern take on a finger lickin’ favourite,” said Tony Davison, head of global foodservice and QSR at Quorn.
The vegan burger will be joined by the new veggie Southern Fritter Stacker, which is having its own trial that kicks off a month later on July 15. It'll be available as a burger, wrap, and ricebox.
You can grab yourself an Imposter burger on its own for £2.99, but if you need something to wash down the bitter taste of deception, you can whack on a drink for an extra 50p. You can get it as a wrap with a drink for £3.99, and as a salad with a drink for £3.79.
