KFC or Kentucky Fried Chicken is an American fast food chain, founded on March 20th 1940 by Harland Sanders, also known as the Colonel. It should be noted that he was not a military man, the title of colonel was instead honorary, as in a Kentucky Colonel, which is apparently the highest title of honour bestowed by the Commonwealth of Kentucky. KFC as the name suggests is most famous for, and specialises in fried chicken, it is also the world’s second largest restaurant chain, after McDonald’s, with locations in 136 countries, and over 22,621 outlets as of 2018. Much like McDonald’s, KFC was sold by its founder and has passed hands several times, being owned at different times by Heublein, R.J. Reynolds, PepsiCo and most recently and currently Yum! Brands (formerly called Tricon Global Restaurants) who also own Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, and WingStreet.

My first thought was, did they just put a regular chicken burger in a vegan box because I honestly couldn’t taste the difference initially. But then the subtle differences were made more apparent, the main one for me was that the herbs and spices were more pronounced/noticeable. It was really pleasant and I also liked the inclusion of vegan mayonnaise to complete the overall experience, especially since it took what might have been a slightly dry burger otherwise and made it a perfectly balanced meal. Overall I think it looks like chicken, tastes like chicken and the famous 11 herbs and spices are present but not overpowering.
