KFC fast food restaurants across South Korea recently introduced an unusual new dip for its iconic fried chicken, became popular for both its bizzarre color and flavor: mint chocolate!
In case you didn’t know, a mint chocolate craze is sweeping South Korea these days, and companies are trying to take advantage of it.

The latest to do so is fast food giant world famous KFC, which recently launched a mint chocolate dip, featuring a curious light blue color and gooey texture.
Created as part of a seasonal collaboration with local food delivery app Baemin, the blue mint chocolate dip will be available in KFC branches all over South Korea until August 8, giving people enough time to spice up their summer.
Believe it or not, most of those who have tried it claim that it doesn’t taste like toothpaste at all, but it has a rich, sweet chocolate taste complemented by fresh mint.
KFC itself describes the blue dip as a combination of the refreshing taste of dark sweet chocolate and mint.
Despite It still doesn’t sound like something that complements fried chicken, the general feedback for the unique dip has been rather positive. Even if you’re not a fan of minty foods, KFC claims their newest creation is worth a try.
“We hope people can have a brand new KFC experience with the Baemin mint chocolate set menus which consist of KFC’s popular chicken and burgers,” a KFC South Korea official said.
