Because there just aren't enough deep-fried liquid foods in the world, KFC Japan has gone and thrown corn chowder into the deep fryer.
Spun as deep-fried soup, the breaded corn fritters will be launched September 5 in KFC restaurants across Japan and carry on a culinary trend that's taken the country by storm: creamy corn potage, reports RocketNews24.
The popularity of corn soup has made it a fixture on cafe menus in Japan and -- as is bound to happen in a country where culinary trends often take on a life of its own -- undergone unexpected interpretations including popsicle form for the summer.
Only natural that the extreme should also swing the other way and end up in the fryer, notes RocketNews24.
When it comes to deep-frying liquids, there are perhaps no better culinary alchemists than US state fair food purveyors, who've deep-fried Coca-Cola and Kool-Aid.Follow @CanoeLifestyle
