..... CHICKEN sandwich.... not Fish :whistle:
But perhaps we're bored of fish, and now that we're running out, we'd like to try something new :P ?

*cough*Chicken Tikka Masal*Cough* :r

Most overrated curry ever IMO, but I guess that's a matter for another thread :lol: .

Nor have I: it was honestly a case of "once and never again" for me. I doubt I'll try the vegan version, since I know I wouldn't have enjoyed the non-vegan version anyway. Though, I guess it's nice to know it exists, for if I ever end up being taken there :) .

Wow, that's a phenomenal start :O . Of course, the real test will be whether it still sells well once the hype dies down!

It's even more impressive when you consider that the enthusiasm among vegans has been kind of muted - as exemplified by this quote from the article:

Quote:"KFC murder millions of chickens every year. Just because they now have a vegan option, it doesn't make the chain suddenly cruelty-free. If you buy the vegan burger, you are still paying to hurt chickens," one social media user said.

I understand this attitude - but, I'm not sure that it's productive. At least KFC are trying to make vegan products: if too many vegans pour cold water over them for not making the whole chain cruelty-free, then that just discourages them from trying at all :-/ .

If you want to go the route of that quote, you can't use grocery stores unless it was a vegan only store. If you want to go that route, the user should be reminded that even with a vegan diet you are killing animals via harvesting (harvesting equipment that runs over rats, mice, other small mammals, and you are removing a good source of food to these animals by harvesting). If you want to go that route, I sure as heck hope they don't use a car, or public transport since fuel is an animal byproduct, even if those animals existed millions of years ago. If you want to go that route I hope when they go to their vegan grocery store to buy Hand Picked™ fruits and veggies, that it was delivered via trucks or other fossil fuel driven modes of transportation.

Those are the holier-than-thou vegans which I hate.
