The website Brand Eating brings word that KFC Japan is offering a limited time item of bacon potato fritters. Essentially, it's mashed potatoes mixed with bacon, herbs and sour cream that are then battered and fried.
We've got to agree with Brand Eating that this item sounds pretty good (better than KFC Singapore's Shrimp Stars and Fish Donuts at least) -- it would certainly be a departure for this to appear on an American menu, but it does combine a lot of America's favorite foods. And, think about how many other successful potato and bacon fried combos already exist in the States? We're totally ready for the next level.
