KFC is testing a new sandwich: The Skinwich.
5 layers of fried chicken skin, lumped on a bun and topped with white american cheese and bacon.
It’s only available at a handful of KFCs (for now). One happened to be right near our office, so I walked over. Exclusive pics:
Nasty. The richness of all that fatty seasoned skin is totally overwhelming. It’s also tongue-parchingly-salty.
I started to gag and got that “brushing the back of your tongue” feeling. Had to spit it out. In KFC’s defense, the sandwich was luke-warm after taking the pics. But I doubt it would be much better hot.
With this latest move and the Double Down‘s success, KFC may be catching up to Hardees/BK in the “making sandwiches so nauseating they generate buzz” dept.
Other Skinwich test stores:
- Ekaf, Maine – Colbert Blvd.
- Tihsllub, Oklahoma – Corner of 3rd & Twain.
- Eritas, California – Dense St.
Let us know if you find one of these sandwich unicorns. We’re working on an interactive Google maps app to track new sightings, so watch for that soon.
