Get Ready For KFC’s Hot Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts
By Cooking Panda
Feeling the pulse of the craziness that the limited run test caused in 2019, Kentucky Fried Chicken® announced that the much sought after, always hot, Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts is bring brought to fans all across the country.
Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts is the perfect marriage of two all-American classics. So it is no surprise that when KFC’s world-famous fried chicken is paired with a warm, fresh-grazed donut, people love it. February 24 onwards, you can enjoy Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts at participating restaurants in the U.S, although it is a limited run.
The introduction of Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts marks an attempt by KFC to bring the latest rising fried chicken trend to the masses. A feat they have accomplished before with the nationwide debut of Nashville Hot Chicken in 2016 and Chicken & Waffles in 2018. The popularity of this latest pairing is evident as the eminent chefs are trying to create entire concepts around it. So far, the people residing outside the major U.S cities haven’t had the chance to enjoy this impressive combination, that is until now.
Chief Marketing Officer of KFC, Andrea Zahumensky, said, “Chicken & Donuts is the newest fried chicken trend we’re bringing to all of America. But not just any donut would do. Only a donut that’s glazed-to-order and served piping hot every single time can stand next to our hand-breaded fried chicken. It’s a finger lickin’ good dish filled with glaze and glory.”
KFC is set on making the debut of Chicken & Donuts memorable in a unique fashion by opening a pop-up shop. “The Colonel’s (Chicken &) Donuts Shop” will open for just a day on February 22, Saturday, in Los Angeles, which, if you don’t know, is the donut capital of the world.
At 615 North La Brea Avenue, Los Angeles, the Colonel’s (Chicken &) Donuts Shop will open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on February 22, serving nothing but Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts. The first 50 customers in queue* at the shop will be treated with a free Colonel’s Dozen, a tempting mix of six KFC Extra Crispy™ chicken tenders and six glazed-to-order donuts. Walks-ups are also welcome and guests can RSVP here
