KFC introduces ‘edible bucket’
Gourmet News: Fast food giant Kentucky Fried Chicken have unveiled plans to please hungry customers, by making both the Variety Bucket and its accompanying napkins edible.
From next month the bucket itself will be made from fried skin, allowing those customers still hungry after eating 12 pieces of chicken an additional meaty-treat.
If that doesn’t fill you up, the napkins that come with the meal will also be edible, made out of something KFC only refer to as ‘protein’.
“We’re always keen to offer out customers value for money,” said KFC spokesman Chad Brosweet.
“We also want to help the environment and reduce waste, so the new skin buckets are designed to fill our customers, rather than landfill sites.”
Health groups have criticised the chicken chain’s edible skin-bucket. “What next? Will their restaurants have tables made out of bacon? Chairs made out of stuffed-cheese, deep-fried, chicken wings?” said anti-obesity campaigner Gerard Niçoise.
KFC have responded by saying Mr. Niçoise’s suggestions ‘were all excellent’.
