Around the World: KFC Singapore - New Shrimp Stars

I've heard of star-shaped chicken nuggets, but never star-shaped shrimp nuggets so here you go: KFC Singapore just started offering new Shrimp Stars.

They look to be a good size and are breaded and deep-fried; a good match for KFC. They're offered in a "Snackers" combo deal with 4 Shrimp Stars, fries and a medium drink for 3.95 Singapore Dollars (~$3.15 U.S.).

Other entrees available in KFC Snackers Combos include: Fish Donuts, a Drumstick, a Shrooms burger, a KFC Roller, Original Recipe Fillet Burger, and Popcorn Chicken.

If you're wondering what a Fish Donut is, it's pretty much a ring-shaped fish stick that KFC Singapore has offered since February 2012. It's also available at KFC Thailand. Here's a commercial from KFC Thailand that gives a closer look at the Fish Donut:

Here in the U.S., while rival chain Popeyes has offered various shrimp items now and again, KFC has thus far resisted serving the ocean-bound crustaceans (except for a limited time in Hawaii back in 2010, as well as 2011).
