Panda Express has a food truck. And yes, that food truck is full of orange chicken.
Be a food snob if you need to — but when there’s a plate of hot, sticky, crunchy orange chicken in front of you, I dare you not to eat it.
The truck will be launching a nationwide tour, and is headed to the KCRW Chinatown Summer Nights in Los Angeles on Aug. 22.
And all that orange chicken will be free. The truck will be doling out free samples of orange chicken and white rice, along with a Pepsi. There will also be a limited supply of orange chicken and waffles.
Next to the truck, an “orange chicken lounge” where guests can relax and eat orange chicken. And if you’re a die-hard fan, prove it in an orange chicken chopsticks challenge or trivia game.
No word on details for the chopsticks game, but we’re hoping it somehow involves eating as much orange chicken as you can, with chopsticks, in a span of five minutes.
The truck will also host an orange chicken chef challenge from 5 to 6 p.m. Four to five yet-to-be-announced chefs will make their own dishes incorporating the orange chicken. And a group of media and judges will crown the orange chicken champion.
