Confirmed sighting: KFC Pepsi Drift
Posted: 15:33 Fri 30-05-2003. Price: £1.19. Location: KFC, London's Leicester Square. Sub-flavours: Pepsi, 7Up or Orange Tango. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
reports: given that there isn't a direct UK equivalent of Vanilla Coke among the Pepsi family, by adding a moderately substantial portion of vanilla ice-cream to an 0.4l soft drink, KFC have effectively created their own! The Pepsi starts to taste of vanilla, a sinister brown froth develops where the two substances meet, and you can fish the leftover icecream out from between the ice-cubes with a transparent straw that doubles as a spoon. Top marks to "The Colonel" for ingenuity!
Of course, the level of promotion you find at your local KFC may vary, as demonstrated by these spectacular pictures of a Japanese chicken curry burger, and this impressive hoarding spotted by Snackspot's own Dave Green outside their
Tower of London branch. Then again, according to this poignant account by comedian Richard Herring, visiting an alternative outlet isn't always an uplifting experience either.

Comment: or beer. Then again, you can get Cherry 7Up, so why not Vanilla Orange Tango?
