Yes, you read that headline right. The KFC in the Tokyo area of Takadanobaba is now offering unlimited beer, cocktails and wine starting at the low price of $10! The store last used this deal during 2016 when they ran it during the evenings from 5PM onwards.
The store itself is very close to the Takadanobaba train station while the area itself is frequented by university students from the nearby Waseda University. Normally the deal costs you ¥1, 600 but you get all the drinks you can handle for 90 minutes and all the refills are in the house.
The beers on tap are Edelpeis pilsner from Sapporo and Heartland from Kirin while Suntory contributes Premium Malts Kaoru Ale and Premium Malts. No Asahi but that can be forgiven when these other flavours are on offer.
There’s also a KFC highball called the Colonel High that carries a spicy flavour paired well with the house chicken.
If you’re in the area on a Wednesday night then you’re in luck as after 6PM, the deal kicks in and all you pay is $9. All they ask is that you make a reservation the day before and you’re good to go. If you want more info, here’s the details below:
Just the title alone of this post makes my water…churros are those delicious sweet sticks covered in anything from icing sugar to strawberry jam. And now I hear that KFC in Japan are bringing out a special flavour for Halloween season.
They’re releasing churros in pumpkin maple flavour. This season in Japan sees pumpkin Kit Kats and pumpkin treats in Starbucks as well.
¥220 will get you a three pack along with the special maple sauce to drizzle all over that yummy goodness.
The special limited edition churros will be on sale from October 21 through to October 31 so if you’re in town, go and get some!
I’m not really a fan of J-Rock singer Ladybeard but his talents other than singing have been put to use lately, namely by KFC.
The theme of the viral hopeful commercial is Taressence which is a coming together of sauce or tare as it’s known. The commercial has a nostalgic retro 80’s aesthetic to it as well with wavy lines across the screen like the video tapes of yesteryear.
I’ve watched it a few times and I still can’t work it out. Have a look and let me know your thoughts in the comments section below.
Continuing on the recent Pokemon 20th anniversary comes these goodies from Colonel Sanders in Japan. KFC Japan will be receiving quite a few Pokemon related goodies commencing on March 17th that will be part of their meals. What kind of things you ask? Well, there’ll be a specially marked Pokemon chicken bucket, placemats, figures and game kits.
Let’s have a closer look at what’s coming to them.
For an extra ¥190, you cam order these over the top kawaii figurines for your drink straw. How awesomely cute are these!? You won’t be able to choose which one’s you actually received but still, they’re so cheap that it’ll be fun trying to catch ’em all! (Yeah, I went there). What’s up are Yancham (Pancham), Keromatsu (Froakie), Fokko (Fennekin), Ninfia (Sylveon), Harimaron (Chespin) and of course, Pikachu.
Speaking of catch ’em all, there is a pack that contains all of them and will be sold for ¥2,500. And you also get a cute tote bag, a stand for them and vouchers for 6 drinks! We mentioned the game kits before? What that actually contains is a set made of cardboard that allows you to thrown a Pokeball at the various Pokemon to catch them.
It’s made up of different character cards totalling 16 and you also get a choice of either a forest or street scene. But the best is for last! Beginning with April 21st and timed to coincide with the holiday period known as the Golden Week, this yummy looking set will be going on sale. Crispy Strips, 4 pieces of Original chicken and Fries, all in a special bucket and with a Pikachu placemat included, this will be selling for ¥1,890.
Kyaru Pamyu Pamyu never seems to run out of things to do as her star power rises and rises in Japan. Not content with being a hugely popular J-Pop singer, undertaking a world tour and doing promotion for clothing stores, GU, now we see that she’s turned her attention to food. KFC, to be exact.
Feast your eyes on the videos below which show her promoting the upcoming KFC Crushers just in time for the Japanese Summer and under that, you can find a making of the video.
During Xmas time in Japan, KFC is heavily promoted as the meal of choice for that special night or day. The promotion seems to have worked as most Japanese people have embraced the Western fast food chain, creating massive queues normally reserved for the release of a new Pokemon game.
Thanks to video blogger, TheJapanChannelDcom, we can see what exactly goes on during this festive time of the year.
