KFC has sold original, extra crispy, extra spicy crispy, tender roast, grilled, oven-baked, and several other varieties of their product. They've also offered it in wings, sandwiches, wraps, and dipped in bbq sauce. In select restaurants, the chicken giant will begin offering a new product: Kentucky Sushi Chicken.
A test market will be established to see how a raw chicken product, served with their famous dipping sauces, is received by the public. Said one spokesman for the company, "people go to sushi places to eat raw fish with different dipping sauces. We've already got the raw chicken, along with our own famous trademark sauces in our locations. Why not take advantage of this untapped market segment?"
Consumers can choose from ranch, honey bbq, sweet and sour, honey mustard, honey, and spicy sauces for their chicken.
When asked about the possibility of salmonella poisoning, which generally comes from raw chicken product, the company said that they were not worried. "People eat rare roast beef and raw fish all of the time, so why should they have a problem with our new sushi chicken?"
