KFC in Japan introduces plastic ‘finger condoms’ to wear while eating

MashableGloves are sooo last century.

To keep your fingers clean while eating fried chicken, KFC in Japan has now started to hand out two-fingered transparent gloves that slip onto your thumb and forefinger, it announced.

The half-glove look is so that you can wear and take off the “finger naps” (short for finger napkins) easily.

It’s testing out the finger naps first at 222 outlets in Japan, before rolling them out to the other 1,000 restaurants in the country.

Not a terrible idea, both to keep your hands clean and also to keep your food clean from your hands, but I have a feeling this would take a while to really catch on in America.

KFC is one of the last places I would think of to come up with this idea. Their slogan is literally “It’s finger lickin’ good.” I would’ve expected Cheetos to offer these first.

Too slow, Cheetos.
