We probably need to start a new blog category for food items some branches of our homegrown fast-food brands are coming up with overseas. That hot-dog in a pizza crust at UK Pizza Huts was genius. McDonald's in Australia's lamb burger is an idea whose time has come.

The latest is KFC Japan's introduction of the deep fried mashed potato fritters you see above. Did I mention it has bits of bacon in it, and also cheese, herbs and sour cream? It's looks like a veritable fully-loaded baked potato after Chicken Charlie gets done with it.
If the Japanese aren't making a big deal out of it, it's probably because the item bears resemblance to korokke. So, KFC, why not offer it here? You can take back your Double Downs.
