Fans were so disappointed that they even started two online petitions to bring back the Krushers to all stores.
‘Bring back the Krushers a KFC’ and ‘Bring back KFC Krushers’ were both in full swing, as part of the fan push to stop any potential ban of the drink.
But it appears their efforts were for nothing, with KFC making last night’s announcement. While they haven’t given a formal reason for dropping the milkshake option from their menu, one Reddit user gave some insight.
'Have a friend who is a manager at a KFC,’ the user wrote. ‘He was cheering they chose to discontinue, apparently they're a PITA [pain in the a**].’
