Another Fast Food Chain Is Rolling Out A Plant-Based Meat Substitute

(c) Elenathewise |

Yesterday, KFC announced they would roll out meatless “chicken” in Atlanta, Georgia stores today. They’re calling them Kentucky Fried Miracles. LOL.

The chain will feature BeyondMeat in two new menu items: nuggets with dipping sauce and a “boneless wing” tossed in various sauces. According to Buzzfeed, vegans and vegetarians should still know that these items will be fried in the same fryer used to cook chicken.

There is no indication that the store will continue this promotion past today or that it will become available outside the city of Atlanta. But if you’re dying to try plant-based fast food right now… Burger King’s Impossible Whopper is available here in Indy — but it is also cooked on the same grill as actual beef burgers.

I’m not a vegan or a vegetarian, but I AM intrigued and I’ll probably give these a go. Here’s to hoping the BeyondMeat KFC items make their way to our Circle City.
