On Jan. 10, Beyond Fried Chicken rolled out at Kentucky Fried Chicken locations across the nation.
Beyond Meat developed the plant-based chicken nuggets exclusively for the restaurant chain.
Food Manufacturing's editors scored some nuggets the day they debuted to see if they truly were a "Kentucky Fried Miracle."
The results were universally positive.
The nuggets have a juicy center wrapped in a crispy breading that evokes KFC's original recipe breading.
The nuggets are square shaped and made from pea protein.
While a few of us prefer the animal-based alternative, this near-chicken is a direct hit.
The plant-based nuggets have been under development for more than two years.
The only downside is that KFC uses the same fryers to cook the nuggets, which is a big turnoff for vegans and vegetarians.
Beyond Fried Chicken is only available for a limited time, while supplies last.
They are made to order at the restaurant, so be prepared to wait a few minutes or order in advance on the KFC app.
