KFC confirmed a new vegan burger debuting in the United Kingdom the first week of January. According to the Independent, the chicken chain announced the KFC Vegan Burger will be in stores beginning January 2.
The burger will be available for £3.99 and is a meat-free version of the Chicken Fillet Burger.

The mayonnaise on the sandwich will be vegan. It will also have the same bun.

It’s the flavour of KFC, just with zero chicken. ”
