This much chicken may be too much. | Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

Pretty old news, but I was tipped off a couple of weeks ago that Kentucky Fried Chicken - KFC, or "PFK" as they are known here in Le Qu├ębec - was market testing out a new 'sandwich' that does away with the bread buns, replacing them with two pieces of fried chicken. I'm trying to think of something witty to say here, but the video promo speaks for itself:

I tend to mostly stay away from American Fast Food - especially anything that could potentially hurt my chances of gittin' with Pam Anderson - but this extreme concoction is too, uhhh, extreme to pass up. If they release it here, I'm definitely going to have to try it.

As a foodie, the fact that it's a sandwich held together with chicken and not bread is pretty cool, although I suppose that basically just makes it a large chicken strip with the sauce. Of course, the fact that it's a KFC / mass marketing product generally means that most of all the conversation about it will be on blogs and forums complaining about how gross it looks. If it were the product of some independent, forward-thinking chicken joint in Seattle, SF or New York you'd have hipsters posting about it on Flickr and Twitter praising it for its originality.

At any rate, you have to hand it to KFC for one thing - they just put back in question everything it means to be a sandwich:
