Fast-food chains are venturing outside of their comfort zones. Taco Bell has entered into the world of french fries while Burger King is serving Crispy Tacos nationwide for a limited time.

Now, another go-to fast-food chain is getting into the taco game. KFC has started offering Crispy Chicken Tacos in certain locations in France.

The new KFC double taco will be packed with deep-fried chicken tenders, along with tomatoes, cheese and guacamole. These ingredients will all be set in a hard tortilla shell, which will then be wrapped in a softshell.

Currently, the Crispy Chicken Tacos can only be found at select locations in France.

This month, KFC also debuted a Cheetos Chicken Sandwich. It is made with a hand-breaded extra crispy chicken filet and a layer of crunchy Cheetos.

In another significant move, Taco Bell is revising its policy on the amount of antibiotics allowed in its beef. This is in line with the company’s effort to meet consumer demands and the changing views toward antibiotics in food products.

Beef is the dominant menu protein at Taco Bell. The chain is planning to reduce antibiotics by 25% in the majority of its beef supply by 2025. This change will be affecting 98% of its global beef supply, and 9.8 million daily orders.

The company said, “This is the brand’s latest step in ensuring that flexitarian and meat-loving fans can enjoy menu favorites, like the Beefy 5-Layer Burrito, without having to choose between craveability and responsible food choices.”
