Chicken sandwich would be interesting, but their popcorn chicken may as well be vegan already with the amount of batter.
That's not to say I won't order it still since the batter is delicious, but I'm not entirely sure it actually contained chicken in the first place.
Do you not have anything else to do rather than argue with strangers on the internet
Nope. That's why I'm on the internet arguing with strangers. If I had anything better to do I'd probably be doing it.

I remember in the past their Popcorn chicken did contain traces of actual chicken bits in it. It was insignificant amount and it was still 90% batter, but it was real chicken at least... nowadays its some odd foamy white substance that most cheap chicken nuggets are made out of, maybe even worse.

Drove by the location around 5:30 and the KFC red colour had been changed to green, and people were lined up to get in. Security guard standing by the door too.

At 1 point in time (a long time ago), an article I read said that on a per gram basis, KFC's popcorn chicken was the single most unhealthy item on any large fast food national franchise menu (in terms of calories & fat). I think its a lot of batter & chicken skin, without much actual chicken, could be wrong though

Just like any other chinese restaurants with their sweet and sour pork....all batter no pork.

Shouldn't even be called chicken, because it's not.

Just curious if this plant-based product is fried in the same oil as their actual chicken pieces?
