Beyond Meat testing plant-based fried ‘chicken’ for KFC

    I do not know what the colonel would say but Beyond Meat and KFC are handing out samples of their new Beyond Meat chicken nuggets at one of its Atlanta restaurants on Aug. 27. Beyond Meat has branched out of the meatless beef and sausage business into the chicken market. The proof will be in the pudding. Well, in this case, it might be in the sauce.

    “Customer feedback from the Atlanta test will be considered as KFC evaluates a broader test or potential national rollout,” KFC said in a statement.

    Fun Fact: In 1986, Pepsico acquired the Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant chain for $850 million.
