Brits jealous after seeing American KFC featuring pot pie and ‘crispier chicken’

Some Brits seem a bit jealous after seeing American Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) meals online - including a pot pie and “crispier chicken.”

A woman on TikTok who goes by @watchkittyshrink showed off the food in a video that has been viewed more than 700,000 times at the time of writing.

She said that she wasn’t the biggest fan of the chicken franchise, but her family loved it. The woman showed off a KFC family feast which included a bag of soda, a pot pie with a flaky crust and filled with chicken, gravy and vegetables.

She also showed off sides such as gravy and biscuits.

Regular items were also shown, such as the famous fried chicken, mashed potato and coleslaw.

She said she shared it because she was curious to know what other KFC’s food options looked like “across the pond” in the UK because she heard it’s “pretty popular” there.

More than 3,000 people took to the video’s comments to share their thoughts about the food - with many Brits in disbelief over the differences in the food between the US and there.

“That’s not a biscuit; it’s a scone, surely?” someone wrote.

“We don’t have the pie or IV bags of coke. Also, all the packaging is paper, not plastic. I’m curious as to what the teacakes are like,” another added.

A third commented on the US KFC chicken’s crunchy exterior and wrote: “The coating looks so nice and crunchy our KFC is always soggy different coating to the American one. I usually put mine In the air fryer to crisp.”

Someone else wrote: “We don’t have pie. We don’t have mash either and no bags of coke lol.”
