By now you've probably heard of the Beyond Fried Chicken from Beyond Meat and fast-food chain, KFC. If you haven't, here's a quick recap: Beyond Fried Chicken (the name for the plant-based fried chicken) launched August 27th in Atlanta, Georgia with plant-based nuggets and boneless wings. Since then, people have been calling these a "Kentucky Fried Miracle."
Just how successful was the launch? Those who wanted to get their hands on the chicken were met with a 2-hour wait and a line that wrapped around the building and stretched a mile up the highway (the last time we waited for something that long was for Space Mountain at Disneyland!). If you want to experience it without really experiencing it, here's a video from Beyond Meat.
Was it worth it? Many people though so! Those who have tried the Beyond Fried Chicken say it resembles a vegan chicken. A writer for Digital Trends wrote that the Beyond Fried Chicken had the taste and texture of real chicken. #whencanwegetthis?
But what about those of us who don't live in Georgia? How do we get this?!? Redditors have said that KFC's Beyond Fried Chicken is comparable to Gardein's Chick n' Wings... wait, say that again?
With the success of the launch, Beyond Fried Chicken may see a potential national rollout soon! But who knows when that will be? If you can't wait for KFC's Beyond Fried Chicken to rollout in your city, here are 6 alternative meat products that are just as crispy and delicious. The best part? You can get it right now!
