KFC New Fries – KFC Launches New Fries in the UK
PRESS RELEASE JUST IN FROM KFC:
AIN’T NO SMALL FRY
Thicker, chunkier and tastier fries land in KFC restaurants nationwide by 19th November
“Dear KFC, No one likes your fries. Yours sincerely, the entire world,” @upgrade_music
“Why is KFC so good at chicken but so bad at fries?” @adumonline
“KFC are riding solely on their chicken because Christ, those are crap fries.” @CharlieJBurness
Three tweets. Three emotional daggers. They took a matter of moments to write, but they’ve lingered long and heavily in our hearts.
Instead of crying into our (soggy) fries, we’ve decided to take action. Radical, potato-fuelled action.
KFC has seriously stepped up its game with a thicker, chunkier and tastier spud.
The long-awaited new fries will be served at all KFC restaurants nationwide by 19th November, and they promise to finally be a worthy partner to its iconic fried chicken.
The search for the perfect new fry was no small undertaking, as KFC tested virtually every type of potato and cut to find the perfect variety.
As well as standing taller and wider (all the better for dipping with), the whole spud is used with the skin left on for a natural, rustic appearance and amazing taste.
The added chunkiness also means they keep their heat for longer, so they’re delicious even on the go.
The new fries have already been met with an incredible response, having been successfully tested in a small number of KFC restaurants across the country for well over a year… time fries when you’re having fun.
Jack Hinchliffe, Chief Potato Enthusiast at KFC UK & Ireland comments: “We don’t change things on a whim – the Colonel’s Original Recipe chicken hasn’t changed since he finalised it in 1940.
This was different though. We heard the nation’s outcry. We read the brutal Tweets. We had to step up our fries game. Thicker, chunkier, tastier. Job done.”
