Chinese Hearthstone player and Twitch streamer Haiyun ‘Eloise’ Tang was disgusted after she discovered what came with a KFC kids meal in China.
The streamer was out and about during a nighttime broadcast and headed to a KFC to get some food. In order to place an order, the restaurant required potential customers to scan a code on their phones, select what they want, and pay.
“You’re not allowed to get in the restaurant,” she said, explaining that staff would deliver the meal outside for patrons, possibly because of the coronavirus.
Looking through the menu, Eloise was impressed at first, seeing they were selling lobster rolls – a very nice dish for anyone who enjoys seafood.
“I don’t eat lobster, though. Do you guys eat lobster?” she asked her chat. “Why do I even ask you? This is not a democracy, chat,” she joked, poking fun at her home country.
However, the streamer was really surprised when she started checking out the kids’ options.
“Kids pack. They give you… books?” she gasped. “Wow. That’s probably the last thing I want to receive as a kid.”
Kids meals at fast-food restaurants normally come with some sort of toy, so Eloise was a bit stunned at the decision to include books.
“I wonder if there’s actually kids who want to order that,” she laughed hysterically. “Look at this, you can even get four books! You only spend sixty-nine Yuan and you get four books. Poggers.”
Sixty-nine Yuan is about ten dollars Americans when converted, something the streamer kept joking about.
“That’s four times the fun!” she giggled.
Eventually, after a bit of a wait, the streamer had her food delivered and she headed back to her house to eat.
It’s quite interesting to see how different fast-food chains handle menu items in certain parts of the world. Hopefully, the streamer can show what the menus for McDonald’s or other big names handle kids’ meals in the future.
