Korea’s Mexicana Chicken now in strawberry, banana, melon flavors

mexichickenKorean fast food chain Mexicana Chicken wants you stop, look, and listen, and then try their new pink strawberry chicken, yellow banana chicken and green cantaloupe chicken. For realz.

The company’s “Stoplight Chicken” — small pieces of boneless chicken coated in flavored powders colored red, yellow, and green — are the three colors of a traffic signal. Get it?

RocketNews24 explains:

Apparently emboldened by the previous success of chicken nuggets coated in cheese powder, Mexicana has decided to go all out and add strawberry, banana, and melon to the available flavors for their fried chicken. However, according to online reaction, the result is not great.

According to the website Soompi reaction to Stoplight Chicken in Korea has been less than positive, with various criticisms appearing online. In particular, mukbang – which is both my new favorite word and online Korean shows in which people eat something and talk about it – have been harsh.

The video is fairly long so I’ll give you the gist: Throughout the 30 minutes that this video lasts she only eats about four and a half pieces (1 strawberry, 3 1/2 banana) and spends much of the time picking at it, trying to shake off the fruit flavored powder, and making a phone call.
