Arteries everywhere cheer weakly as KFC bring out the grill
First, McDonald’s started supplementing their, ahem, nutritionally-poxy menu with a few bags of salad here and there. Then Pizza Hut had a stab at healthification by changing the names of a few of their restaurants to Pasta Hut to the delight of… well, approximately no one.
Now, Kentucky Fried Chicken are the latest fast food giants to fly in the face of the business plan that reads ‘Kill the customers slowly’ – they’re rolling out a grilled chicken option at 5,100 of their American restaurants from April 27th, and on that day, customers will be able to sample a free piece of the new healthier option.
Over here in the UK, we’ll have to wait to see if the move takes off - if it does, KFC have said they’ll roll it out internationally. In the meantime, as a boost to kebab shop owners everywhere, we’d like to offer a plug to the grilled chicken kebab, which is hard to beat as far as we’re concerned, and you don’t even need to be drunk to enjoy it.
