KFC Oh-No-You-Didn’t Cups

Let’s say you are in a hurry and are looking for a snack that would fit in your cup holder.

KFC Go Cup Nutrition

How about a banana? Or an apple? Or maybe you might be interested in the NEW KFC Go Cup?

For a mere $2.49 you can purchase a cup filled with fries and chicken. See here:

The top photo is of the KFC Go Cup in my car. I was curious how it would work – me – driving with greasy food in my car – trying to eat it.

What do you think happened? After stopping for a red light, I managed to drop my chicken tender on the floor of my car – which we all know is a very sanitary place.

I’m kinda glad I did because the KFC Go Cup nutrition facts are SCARY:

540 calories, 28 g fat, 4.0 g saturated fat, 46.0 g carbohydrates, 0 g sugar, 26 g protein, 4.0 g fiber, 1440 mg sodium, 14 Points+

This is almost an entire day's worth of sodium for an over 50 year old and 28 grams of fat! The Go Cup is out of control.

The steering wheel gets covered in grease and you can’t have ketchup with your fries when you attempt to eat from it.

Can I tell you how it tastes? No, because I couldn’t taste anything because I was so focused on driving my car. As you can see, I drive a standard so it was challenging to eat and not run over some poor old lady.

This is by far the worst way to enjoy food. My Honda Fit has 8 cup holders all around the car (which is insane). I am going to use them for water bottles.

Any of you try the new KFC Go Cup? Are you amazed at the nutrition facts?

But was it steering-wheel-lickin' good? Doesn't exactly look it.

Clearly not all things conveniant are good for you. Think about the kids. OMG. WHAT CAN WE DO BUT EDUCATE!

Hungry on the go? Stop at Subway!! You can get fresh food for low calories and it's soooo good and actually will fill you up.

However, if you were out driving around looking for a convenient heart attack all you have to do is pull in to your local KFC and get the "CUP."

Check out The Food Babe's take on Subway, she investigated it.

Oh Yes, I agree with the Subway. I get a flat bread veggie and is it ever good and filling.

Not sure which is more amazing, the nutrition facts, or that you drivr a stick! I'm impressed with both!

Don't you know you can just squirt the ketchup directly into your mouth and then stuff the fries in? That's some gourmet eating right there!

Ok, be honest, do we really need to have it spelled out that KFC is never a good choice for a healthy meal. There are far too many better options available to be able to justify going to KFC. I can make better choices at the gas station nowadays.

I wouldn't go anywhere near KFC with a ten foot pole- the amount of grease is astounding.

Put baby carrots and snow peas and berries in your go cup.

LOL @ Angi! The calories, fat and sodium in fast foods never ceases to amaze me, and none of it tastes good enough to be worth it. Occasionally I am forced into fast food and I always wonder, "Why did this taste so good to me when I was younger? Blech..."

One word: "Yuck!"

Holy sugar sh!t! How horrible! No wonder people in the US have weight issues. What is wrong with these people! I haven't had KFC in years and it was before I started eating healthy because it used to give me the WORSE stomach ache ever!!! The only thing I miss from KFC is every once in a while I crave those stupid fake mashed potatoes with gravy and a biscuit!!

It's scary that people will buy this and think nothing of it.

Yeah I did it. First time eating at KFC in yrs hunger, price sucked me into drive thru. Inhale the go cup/honey mustard dipping sauce while driving.(who cared bout greasy steering wheel) ended up home soo thirsty from the salt intake from that demon go cup- heartburn chest, belly feeling like just swallowed a rock. Sat down figured out the points and counted them journal the experience and stuff I could have eaten that was better for me. The whole time thinking "this is why people on the other side of the world call us fat Americans " this is what happens when you leave your almonds home and get hungry! desperation!

I like the idea of the cup to use for other (better)snacks while driving. I might buy it, throw the chicken and fries away and use the cup.

Yikes! I'm kind of glad that my son asked to go to KFC once because he heard some kids talking about it. He never asked to go back again. His go to place is Subway - over McDonalds and Burger King. I'm a happy mom!

Subway is the devil in disguise! Are you people aware of the crap in their breads?!

I don't know why Subway is thought of as a place to get healthy food. As a dietian and Certified Diabetes Educator, I used the Subway menu and nutrition info as a teaching tool. At that time, a few years ago, there were only a couple of items on the menu that had an appropriate amount of carbs and fat, such as the Veggie Delight, but the sodium is always too high. It's okay in a pinch, but as others have suggested, it is much better to plan your meals and snacks ahead of time so you can limit your exposure to this "food porn," a phrase coined by Center for Science in the Public Interest. Check it out. Lots of good info in their publication and no ads.

I haven't been to KFC in years. When I would go, the Mac and cheese was my favorite until one day I went and they said they didn't have any. I asked why and they said that something went wrong and the Mac and cheese was fluorescent orange and it wasn't a very appetizing color. Makes you stop and think how many dyes and chemicals they must be using.
