Since KFC opened its first place in Beijing, China has become “the wild west” for American fast-food brands. Among the well-known franchises, KFC, McDonald’s, and PizzaHut have been the most successful brands in China. Part of the success is due to their tireless efforts to adjust to the palate of local consumers. Here are some bizarre but delicious menu items these companies launched only in China.
1 Peking Chicken Twister 老北京鸡肉卷
"Got Chicken, Got Soul" was KFC's new slogan in the year of 2003, when the company launched this special item during Chinese New Year in mainland China. With fried chicken, cucumbers, fresh onion, and Pecking Duck sauce wrapped in spiced tortilla, the Twister is still one of the most popular items in China almost 20 years after its invention. It might be the first "fusion food" to be popularized in the country.
