KFS? KFC Japan introduces fried soup to menu

KFC Japan is introducing a new item to its menu this fall.

Sept. 5 (UPI) -- KFC Japan is welcoming fall this year with a new menu item: fried soup.

One of the biggest trending foods in Japan is the creamy soup corn potage, a common fixture in Japanese cafes.

The soup became even more popular when a Japanese popsicle brand introduced a corn potage flavor, which was such a huge hit it regularly sold out.

KFC Japan has chosen to go the opposite direction with the soup, releasing a deep-fried corn potage fritter, which will be sold starting Thursday, no spoon required.

“We bread the corn potage and cook it to a crisp,” explained the fast food giant. The Kentucky-fried soup is said to stay soft and creamy on the inside but crispy on the outside.
