They must be ‘finger lickin’ good’ (Picture: KFC)

Earlier this week, we received the exciting news that KFC would be testing out plant-based ‘chicken’ nuggets and wings at a branch in Atlanta.

Well it seems the demand for more vegan options is definitely there, because the new menu items were reportedly sold out ‘within hours’ of becoming available.

This is excellent news for vegans, as prior to launch the fast food chain had said this would be the deciding factor in whether it offered the product elsewhere.

That’s right, there’s a chance we might get to taste the nuggets for ourselves very soon.

The plant-based products are made with Beyond Meat, and follow the launch of the brand’s vegan Imposter Burger, which sold out in just four days in the UK. We tried the burger for ourselves and it tasted very similarly to the real stuff, so there’s a good chance the nuggets and wings will too.

They will be coated with the KFC’s secret blend of herbs and spices.

The brand announced the news about the popularity of its nuggets and wings in a tweet.

‘All of the Colonel’s @BeyondMeat Kentucky Fried Chicken has Kentucky Fried sold out,’ it said.

‘Yes, it is truly a Kentucky Fried Miracle.’

KFC has yet to confirm whether it will be rolling out the new dishes to other countries, but this is definitely a positive sign.

As for reviews from people who have tried it, there haven’t been many reactions to the taste as of yet, but many are asking for a vegan dip or gravy to go along with the nuggets.

PETA is also supportive is the launch; the animal welfare charity has started a petition urging the company to offer the vegan options across all of its branches.

Here’s hoping.
