Beginning Thursday, KFC locations in Japan will begin selling deep-fried soup. Available for a brief test window, the new menu item consists of creamy corn porridge covered in batter—crispy on the outside, soft and gooey on the inside.
Rocketnews claims that this recipe is actually one of the chain's originals:
The Colonel’s autobiography contains a recipe for potato bacon fritters, which KFC Japan started from and tweaked in developing its corn potage variant
If they're successful, there's a possibility they'll be tested in the states. You know that here in 'Merica we love to deep-fry things. Even liquids.
