KFC is jumping on the plant-based bandwagon and testing vegan 'chicken' nuggets and wings. According to Veg News, Beyond Fried Chicken was offered at a KFC in Atlanta on August 17 and sold out in five hours.
The fast food chain will reportedly consider a national rollout of the vegan nuggets and wings based on the feedback from customers in Atlanta.
So what are the plant-based nuggets and wings made of? According to the LA Times, it consists of wheat gluten "covered in KFC’s proprietary coating."
KFC isn't the first fast food chain to offer a vegan option. In 2018 White Castle teamed up with Impossible Foods to offer the Impossible Slider and earlier this year Burger King began selling Impossible Whoppers.
