KFC Japan Starts Selling Deep-Fried Mashed Potato With Bacon In It

Categories: Chain Reactions
We probably need to start a new blog category for food items some branches of our homegrown fast-food brands are coming up with overseas. That hot-dog in a pizza crust at UK Pizza Huts was genius. McDonald's in Australia's lamb burger is an idea whose time has come.

The latest is KFC Japan's introduction of the deep fried mashed potato fritters you see above. Did I mention it has bits of bacon in it, and also cheese, herbs and sour cream? It's looks like a veritable fully-loaded baked potato after Chicken Charlie gets done with it.

If the Japanese aren't making a big deal out of it, it's probably because the item bears resemblance to korokke. So, KFC, why not offer it here? You can take back your Double Downs.

Holy Christmas, that looks good. Combining KFC's legendary herb and spice coating with its amazing mashed potatoes sounds like a winner to me. I just may try to scoop up some mashed with a piece of torn coating next time I'm there. And maybe if they launch it here they could mix in some of that Little Bucket Parfait stuff too.
