News – “KFC Japan Invents Low-Smell Fried Chicken To Keep Aroma From Bothering People”

foodbeast.comAround Christmastime, one of the go-to party meals in Japan happens to be none other than fried chicken. Of course, carrying a bucket full of the crispy stuff home can lead to some strong aromas wafting through the air. If you’re taking the subway or other public transportation, some may even find it bothersome. Fortunately, KFC’s got a “low-smell” fried chicken solution to keep that awkward scenario from happening.


KFC Japan sells low-smell fried chicken to keep you from getting stink eye on the train. 

In always-polite Japan, KFC has low-smell fried chicken so you won’t bother people on the train

KFC Japan wants to help keep the smell of your finger-lickin’ good meal out of other passengers’ noses.


According to Sora News 24, there’s a special KFC subway stand in downtown Tokyo that sells the low-smell fried chicken. Called “Fried Chicken Home Type,” the meal consists of two pieces sealed in a special container served at room temperature. KFC claims that they’ve developed a technique that locks in flavor and aroma, although that may just be the fact that the chicken isn’t piping hot upon serving. Since steam carries flavor through the air, a lack of that may contribute to that aroma repression.

Look man if you’re in that much of a rush to the point you’re smashing your chicken on the train…you don’t care about the damn smell.
