KFC New Fries

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.”

    Finally! Old ones were awful, trying to copy McDonalds style but failing badly.

      Actually I thought they copied McDonald’s fries quite well – tasteless and bland. Looking forward to trying the new ones.

    So much for their attempt to improve their fries last year. Hopefully this time there will be a difference.

    Just tried the new fries/chips last night. Terrible!!! Most were about 2 inches long or smaller. Soggy throughout with absolutely no crispy outside and fluffy inside, just soggy all the way through. No dipping in your beans or gravey if this is what they are going to be like. Binned most of mine and son tried some and said they were disgusting. Had to agree.

    ust tried the new fries, and they’re horrible, IMO.
    The old fries weren’t great, but these ‘rustic’ ones are worse, MUCH worse – Come back old fries, all is forgiven… 🙁

    Bring back the old fries because the new ones are horrible. There was nothing wrong with the other ones they were far better

    Bit of an own goal here by KFC they have replaced the old fries with disgusting chips that you can get from any fast food outlet or chip shop, surely a better idea would be to still offer the old fries to those that like them or the new chips to those that prefer them..Five of us went last night and no one liked the new chips so that’s KFC off the menu for the foreseeable future for us five:(

    Tried the new fries for the first time Friday, unaware that they had changed them. Looked different in the packet, tried one and it was disgusting and inedible. Tasted like a McCain oven chip including the slimy skin that comes with oven chips. To old were fries were okay if eaten hot, but these are so bad we threw out all four packets. This is a huge mistake, a New Coke level of mistake. If KFC continues with this new receipe of fries I will never eat their fries again. Closer examination of the fries also reveals they have small patches of skin on them…awful…deliberate?
