KFC recently rolled out the positively genius Go Cup, filled with fried chicken and potato wedges.
Here's the blueprint: Two Extra Crispy Chicken Tenders and a small order of potato wedges, stuffed into a plastic cup tailored to fit snugly in your vehicle's cup holder. The cup is designed to make it easier to eat fried chicken behind the wheel.
I know, small thing, but it's very difficult to drive while balancing a KFC bucket on your lap. I've tried, trust me.
KFC has four more Go Cup blueprints: four Original Recipe Bites, one Chicken Littles Sandwich, three Hot Wings and one Original Recipe Boneless Filet. All come with potato wedges. All are $2.49.
Since none of these Go Cups offers a new menu item, the star attraction is obviously the cup. KFC had its thinking cap on when it came up with this brainstorm.
Eating fried chicken at 60 mph sounds greasy and odd. But we've all eaten a billion McDonald's fries while driving, so we've crossed that bridge.
KFC's patented Go Cups are made of heavy black plastic, with a divider down the middle to separate the chicken and potato wedges. The bottom of the cup is the size of a soda can, which fits 83 percent of vehicle cup holders, according to KFC. Go Cups are served with a thin, clear plastic top that keeps your food warm a few extra minutes.
While classified as snacks, they make a pretty decent-size lunch for a very attractive price. I picked the Go Cup with Chicken Tenders because the tenders are dipped in KFC's extra crispy breading.
The only Go Cup to avoid is Hot Wings. Those are bone-in wings, which presents the problem of waste management. Where do you put the bones? No, not back in the cup. Then you have to go digging through an elephant burial ground for the last wing.
Please, it's already hard enough driving ... and listening to the radio and talking on the phone and looking out for cops.
