The brand first tested Secret Recipe Fries last year and recently started rolling out the fries across the US.
“While we know there are wedge-lovers out there who may be disappointed, consumer response to our Secret Recipe Fries during the test and the rollout has been overwhelmingly positive,” Business Insider quoted a representative of KFC as saying.
Some KFC fans are not happy with the change and have taken to social media to voice their concerns:
KFC has "new" fries now and I'm not happy about it. 😑 KFC need to bring the old fries back! The wedges were the only reason why I went there and those were much healthier too. #kfc #bringbacktheoldfries… https://t.co/eCAOkjNOhP
