Gloves 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.
"The most delicious way to eat chicken is with your hands," said KFC's press statement, adding that the finger sheaths were prompted by customer feedback.
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.
Japanese patrons have quickly hit KFC outlets to try out the new novelty item.
While finger naps are fairly new to the rest of us, they've been a common sight in Korea for years, where fried chicken is an art form unto itself.
Korean restaurants overseas, such as this one in Sao Paulo, have also exported the finger naps to curious Brazilians.
KFC's chicken may be "finger lickin' good," but with finger naps, you won't need to do that anymore.
