Attention southerners! Expo City entertainment complex is set to open in Japan at the Expo ’70 Commemorative Park, and from November 19 forward, one of its tenants will be a buffet-style KFC restaurant! Ohhhh shiiiit!
For 90 minutes, diners will be able to enjoy all the Colonel’s original recipe chicken they can eat, along with roughly 60 other menu items. In addition to standards such as fresh-baked biscuits and cole slaw, the restaurant will also serve rotisserie chicken, soup, salad, and macaroni and cheese made according to a recipe from Colonel Sanders himself. For dessert, there will be a selection of fruit, cake, and other sweets.
KFC is also promising an atmosphere of Southern hospitality, which in addition to piles of fried chicken means a woody interior and Colonel Sander’s actual suit on display, since the late chicken mogul’s iconic duds are now in Japan.
Adult prices range from 1,880 to 2,480 yen (US$16-$21), with weekday afternoons being the lowest-price dining time and weekend evenings the highest. Children between the ages of 4 and 12 eat for reduced prices, and those under 4 dine for free, which should free up some of your budget for when your kids ask you to take them to the Pokémon Gym that’s also in Expo City.
So wait, they want you to eat all the KFC fried chicken you can, and then force your kids to go to a Pokemon themed gym for children? Japan is so fucked up sometimes!
Move over-pumpkin spice! Throw on your UGGs and rush down to a Starby’s cuz they’ve got a new frap with 6 pumps of syrup just in time for Halloween called the Frappula Frappuccino!
The “vampire-inspired” coffee drink begins with mocha sauce and whipped cream at the bottom of the cup, followed by the chain’s white chocolate mocha Frappuccino. The gory drink gets topped with raspberry syrup to give it that spooky, bloody Halloween effect.
Starbucks will be serving the punny-named drink until Nov. 1, and after that you’ll have to be super creative to get it AKA order off the secret menu.
That moment when you realize that Starbucks has just become a high-cal milkshake factory, and no longer is about coffee!

Christmas comes before Halloween this year as news that Taco Bell will unveil a taco that uses fried chicken instead of a taco shell.
A Taco Bell spokesperson has said of the new menu item,
“It’s our first and only taco with its shell made from premium, all-white meat chicken and filled with shredded lettuce, cheddar cheese and fresh diced ripe tomatoes. We’re conducting a small test in Bakersfield, California and will roll out nationally if successful.”
The Naked Crispy Chicken Taco is $2.99 for a single taco and $4.99 for a combo. Give it to my arteries, I don’t care how bad it is! Just give it to me!
