KFC has finally announced they are trialling a vegan burger, and yes it has the finger lickin’ good taste of the brand’s famous chicken.
For the first time ever, KFC is trialling a vegan version of its classic Original Recipe Fillet Burger.
Called The Imposter Burger, the vegan option will be trialled across KFC branches in London, Bristol and the Midlands.
Victoria Robertson, Chief Vegetable Enthusiast at KFC UK & Ireland commented: “We know… it’s unfair. Vegans have been cruelly denied the incredible taste of KFC up to now, which is why we’ve worked hard to perfect The Imposter – a vegan burger that the Colonel would be proud of.”
What is vegan KFC burger made from?
The Imposter Burger has been replaced with a bespoke Quorn fillet that “does the Colonel’s recipe justice”.
It has been coated in the Colonel’s Original Recipe herbs and spices.
The veggie option has also been stuffed with fresh iceberg lettuce and creamy vegan mayo all housed in a soft glazed bun.
When will the vegan burger be available?
The burger is being trialled for four weeks this summer.
KFC fans will be able to get their hands on it from June 17 , 2019.
