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.
Side shot of the beast
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.
Is that Marcus Aurelius, or the Colonel?
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.
