KFC Vegan Burger Review


Ahhhh, the KFC Vegan Burger - something I never thought I'd find myself eating but here we are, it's 2020 and times are changing. As I'm sure a lot of you are aware I'm not actually vegan myself, but I have cut out a lot of dairy from my diet and try not to eat toooooo much meat. But, when I saw that the KFC Vegan Burger had launched today I just had to go and try it immediately.

So, what is the new KFC Vegan Burger? 

The burger includes a vegan Quorn fillet coated in KFC's Original Recipe coating, iceberg lettuce and vegan mayonnaise. It costs £3.99 and is available in most KFC's in the UK, you can see which ones are excluded here. It's also worth pointing out that the fries aren't actually vegan as they're cooked in the same oil as the Popcorn Chicken, so whilst you can have a vegan burger, you can't have the fries. 

The KFC Vegan Burger Review

As a girl that has eaten a fair amount of chicken in her lifetime, it's fair to say I really wasn't sure what to expect with this burger. I deliberately hadn't read anything about it online and went in purely with the knowledge that it had been released today and was fully vegan.

We'll start with the mayo - I genuinely couldn't tell that it was any different to any other mayo I'd ever had. It literally tasted the exact same. 10/10.

Now, we'll skip the iceberg and move straight onto the fillet. It wasn't at all greasy, was hot and crispy and the coating was just like any other KFC product. Now, I didn't actually know it was a Quorn product but the first thing I said after trying it was that it tasted just like Quorn. It was really tasty and I'd definitely have it again. 9/10.

So, how does it compare to Chicken?

That being said, it didn't taste just like chicken. It has the same sort of texture as chicken, but a greyish colour and that famous mycoprotein taste. But, as far as meat alternatives go, this is a really good one!

Concluding thoughts 

Overall, I definitely recommend the KFC Vegan Burger and would absolutely have it again! I think KFC could have taken this launch one step further and thought about how they could have offered vegan fries too, but, beggars can't be choosers... I never thought we'd see the day KFC sold a non-chicken burger let alone the day I'd go in and order it, but here we are!
