KFC is advertising a suspicious (and gross) new “clean eating” burger – and everyone is suspicious
KFC has either leaped, feet-first, onto the clean eating bandwagon – or it is expertly trolling the internet.
The fried chicken chain has unveiled its new "clean eating burger" – a chia seed cauliflower "bun", unsweetened almond yoghurt, spiralized chicken breast, 100 per cent British kale, and an "ice cube relish". Er – yum?
The fast food giant launched the burger in collaboration with suspiciously-named clean eating blogger Figgy Poppleton-Rice. Her Twitter account was set up this month – with comments like "#FiggyFact: Kale tastest better out of decorative porcelain". That sounds a little chirpy, even for a food blogger…
The internet seemed unconvinced by the stunt, with one Twitter user pointing out it was "slightly too early for an April Fool".
