The new faux-chicken offering, called “The Imposter,” will feature a vegan chicken fillet from fake-meat brand Quorn – coated in KFC's unique 11 herbs and spices – along with a layer of vegan mayo and iceberg lettuce on a seeded bun. It will reportedly start rolling out to select stores in the U.K. on June 17 as part of a four-week testing period.

The reactions on Twitter seemed mixed about the new product, with some lauding the idea while others appeared to be somewhat bothered by it.
