Fast food chain KFC really wants the American and North Korean leaders to make peace during their historic summit in Singapore on 12 June – and they’re willing to offer the two a free meal that they can bond over.

KFC announced on Friday (8 June) through their mascot Colonel Sanders that, if US president Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un were willing to accept the invitation, the Sentosa outlet in Singapore would serve them a “KFC Four Peace Meal”, which includes four pieces of fried chicken, two whipped potatoes, two coleslaws and two beverages.

The two leaders’ meeting, during which they will discuss the denuclearisation of North Korea, is planned to take place at the Capella Hotel on the resort island of Sentosa.

“Trust me, it tastes unbelievable,” said the message on KFC’s Facebook page signed off with “Peace out, Colonel H. Sanders”. “Please accept my humble invitation to come down to KFC Sentosa on 12 June for a complimentary box. Let me know if you’re keen so I can reserve a table and jazz it up. Bigly.”

A picture of the “Four Peace Meal” box posted together with the statement reveals the tagline for the promotion: “A four piece meal, for peace.”

Responding to a netizen who asked in the comment section about the price of the special meal, KFC replied, “Unfortunately, this is available only exclusively to President Donald J. Trump and Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un. Not for sale.”

The two politicians may have a celebratory banquet together after their summit as the North and South Korean leaders did after their own summit in April, but the question remains as to whether they will have their meal at a fast food restaurant.

Who knows, Trump might actually take up KFC’s offer: his love for fast food is well known. He once posted a picture on Twitter of him having a meal of KFC chicken, and during his campaign trail he was known to regularly order two Big Macs, two Filet-O-Fish burgers and a chocolate milkshake. He also has a red button on his desk in the Oval Office which, when pressed, summons a butler who serves the president a Coke.

 

Eateries and businesses in Singapore have been cashing in on the upcoming summit, offering special promotions and merchandise inspired by the momentous event.

Trump and Kim are expected to land in Singapore on Sunday ahead of their summit next week, which will be the first such meeting between sitting heads of government of the United States and North Korea. The countries have a long history of a relationship fraught with tension over the hermit state’s nuclear weapons programme.
