KFC is now selling mashed potato - as well as two other game-changing new sides

It's already in stores all across the UK and Ireland

KFC customers have long been vocal about their hatred of the fast food giant's soggy and tasteless chips which, even after a revamp, are still yet to convince the nation.

So in a bid to cater for Colonel fans potato needs, KFC has taken some tips from across the Atlantic and finally started selling mashed potato.

Launching yesterday in KFC stores all across the UK and Ireland, KFC's brand new creamy mash is surely set to be a welcome addition to the menu, especially when paired with some of its statement gravy.

For those that aren't keen on potatoes, there's two additional new sides, including a very un-fast food-esque "Southern Rice", as well as a garden salad for some token health.

It will set you back the same price as any other regular or large side, at 99p or £1.69 respectively

Priced the same as all the rest of KFC's regular sides, a pot of the creamy potato goodness costs 99p for a regular portion or £1.69 for the large.

According to the KFC website, it's made from real potatoes and is also lower in calories than other carbs on the menu.

At 110 calories per portion, it also has 2.5g fat, 17.5g of carbs and 0.79g salt. Meanwhile, a portion of regular fries contains almost twice as many calories, at 250, along with 11g of fat, 30g of carbs and 0.5g of salt.

The creamy mash is joined by slightly spicy Southern rice

The new addition comes after years of petitioning from fans of the chicken brand who have tasted its wares overseas, and is - naturally - already taking Twitter by storm.

For those that want some extra nutrients, there's also a salad

Meanwhile, the salad doesn't actually sound too shabby, introduced on the website as "a fresh and crunchy garden salad with sweetcorn, tomatoes and buttermilk dressing, that also provides one of your 5 a day."
