We are continuing our series on how to eat fast food as a vegan. Today’s article is vegan menu items at KFC. How many vegan items are on the menu at KFC?
Every time we do one of these articles we get lit up in the comments about how supporting fast food restaurants are bad, the food is still garbage even if it is vegan, and how no self respecting vegan would ever eat at these places. We get it. Believe me.
First, relax. Some people would really like to be able to go out to eat with their friends or families sometimes. Some people travel a lot and only have fast food as an option sometimes. There are a million reasons someone may want or need to eat at a fast food restaurant. In a perfect world no one would ever eat fast food. But alas, the world is not perfect. If this article doesn’t apply to you then just skip it and move on. It will be helpful for other people.
There’s been a great deal of change over the last couple of years as fast food – or ‘fast casual’ as I think it’s now called – starts to respond to the lifestyle choices and health concerns of their patrons. I’ll be adding to this article the new vegan options that KFC has been rolling out, but one thing to immediately point out is:
KFC Fries Are NOT Vegan
So you can get the vegan burger, but no fries with it. Also, is it only me that finds it yucky they give you the specific product the oil was in? I don’t want to even think about ‘popcorn chicken’ if I’m reading this, just tell me it’s the same oil as ‘other non-vegan products. Also, ending with: ‘hey at least you can get beans and corn’ is only marginally better than the pasta and vegetables, but now I’m just complaining… I’m just pretty upset fries are no longer vegan at KFC.
