Starting today, KFC is launching its new plant-based Beyond Fried Chicken at more than 50 Southern California locations while supplies last. The chicken is available in a six- and 12-piece combo meal that includes Secret Recipe Fries and a drink, or as a 12-piece à la carte option with a choice of dipping sauce (KFC has confirmed the Sweet N Tangy is plant-based). KFC has also stated that while the nuggets are 100-percent plant-based, some diners’ may not consider the options vegan due to them being prepared in the same fryers as its traditional chicken.

“I’ve said it before: despite many imitations, the flavor of Kentucky Fried Chicken is one that has never been replicated, until Beyond Fried Chicken,” KFC US Chief of Marketing Andrea Zahumensky said. “We know the East Coast loved it, so we thought we’d give those on the West Coast a chance to tell us what they think in an exclusive sneak peek.”
