Kentucky Fried What? KFC has announced that it will break its with meat-loving tradition and begin testing a vegetarian alternative to chicken later this year in the United Kingdom.

KFC hopes that their meat-free creation "offers the great taste of KFC to new and existing customers who are changing their dining habits".

What that alternative is remains a mystery, with the chain saying the recipe is in its "very early stages".

In addition to the vegetarian option, KFC has said it will offer low or zero calorie soft drinks and trial a behavioral change program created to "nudge" consumers toward lighter options.

"How sharply has vegetarianism increased in the U.S.?"
