KFC Japan going from sandwiches to burgers

Colonel Sanders and his Japan operation typically make waves in the news when they announce something unusual like an  all-you-can-eat-and-drink KFC buffet in Tokyo , but this time KFC Japan is getting attention for something that's the norm in some other countries. KFC Japan has decided to celebrate it's 40th anniversary by rebranding their chicken sandwiches as burgers.

KFC Japan has announced that they've made the decision to "get serious" about burgers, so they're going to be turning their usual chicken sandwich lineup into burgers. Burgers at KFC aren't unheard of in other countries, as the U.S. boasts it's own  Kentucky Fried Chicken burgers , but KFC Japan has only ever offered their chicken as sandwiches (like their  popular moon viewing festival chicken sandwiches ) outside of two burgers. That's about to change, however, as the chicken chain's Japan branches are expanding to a five burger lineup that features a Spicy Chicken Filet Burger, Cheese Chicken Filet Burger, and Double Chicken Filet Burger on top of their Chicken Filet and Japanese Style Chicken Katsu Burgers.

Naturally, that means a switch from the usual sandwich bread to burger buns.

The KFC Burgers lineup are available at locations throughout Japan, and small drink and medium French fry sets will be 100 yen off between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Just like the article said, this is nothing new in other countries. However, it's a seasonal/limited time deal sensation and it might be worth a try. It sure beats that awful 'Bowl' they put out every blue moon. That dish is nothing but a pile of slopola . Yeeeccchhh.

But, they are sandwiches, not burgers. They were one of the few places that used the correct term, until now.

I guess it was inevitable that they would join all the other places that erroneously use the term "burger" for any round sandwich.

That chicken katsu sandwich with the wafu sauce had me addicted for years. Looks like I've figured out what's for lunch today.

KFC for me means a bucket of Chicken with Coleslaw. If I want a Chicken Burger my first choice is Wendy's. Their spicy burger, while not that spicy, is delicious.

But maybe I'll give these burgers a try.

I shall partake in the burger with a. Cheese slice and request for the Mayonnaise not to be included, just my personal taste I guess. I do rather enjoy their fried potatoes, however the portions are incredibly tiny and the set meals fail to fill up my belly and I certainly don’t have a large appetite

The only problem that I have with it is the excessive amount of mayo and cabbage, other than that, I would definitely buy one.
