FamiChicky (originally called ‘Famichiki’ in Japan) has finally arrived in the country, thanks to FamilyMart Philippines, which has made available the famed konbini (convenience store) snack in Luzon stores starting August 6.
“We’re so glad and excited to finally bring in this Japan favorite. Filipinos can now delight in this well-loved chicken treat, whether at home or wherever they are keeping safe,” said Celina Matias, General Manager of FamilyMart Philippines. “It’s a delicious, easy-to-consume snack wherever you are,” she added.
Launched on the same day that Enhanced Community Quarantine is re-instated in NCR Plus and other parts of the country, the FamiChicky is available across FamilyMart stores for take-out and delivery via GrabMart. Retailing for P85 each, the boneless fried chicken comes with a sauce of the customer’s liking—whether gravy, buffalo, hickory barbecue, honey barbecue, and honey glaze—offered solely in the country.
Aside from the FamiChicky, a bite-size variation called ChickyPops has also been introduced. Available in Original and Spicy, a box of 6 pcs goes for P75.
The Famichiki is considered a classic treat for locals in Japan. Over the years, it has been given different limited-edition iterations, including a burger version, and one spiced with gochujang.
Meanwhile, FamilyMart Philippines has been actively expanding its food and beverage selection. Just last week, it introduced its very own iced caramel macchiato drink.
