KFC fast food restaurants across South Korea recently introduced a bizarre new dip for its fried chicken and it has been raising eyebrows for both its unusual color and flavor – mint chocolate.
In case you didn’t know, a mint chocolate craze is sweeping South Korea these days, and companies are trying to take advantage of it.
Major South Korean companies like Starbucks Korea, Haitai Confectionery and Foods, or Orion have all added mint chocolate-flavored products to their lineups.
The latest to do so is fast food giant KFC, which recently launched a mint chocolate dip.
Featuring a somewhat off-putting light blue color and gooey texture, the unique fried chicken dip recently went viral on social media.
Created as part of a seasonal collaboration with local food delivery app Baemin, the blue mint chocolate dip will be available in KFC branches all over South Korea until August 8, giving people enough time to spice up their summer.
Believe it or not, most of those who have tried it claim that it doesn’t taste like toothpaste at all. Instead, it has a rich, sweet chocolate taste complemented by fresh mint.
