KFC is throwing its hat into the chicken sandwich ring but adding something sweet to the mix.
According to reports, the fast-food chain is testing a fried chicken and doughnut sandwich in the Richmond, Va., area to see if customers are interested in their version of the sweet and salty craze.
Dubbed Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts, the new sandwich will be sold at seven locations in Richmond.
“Served hot and fresh, no matter the time of day, the donuts create a tasty flavor experience in every bite. Consumers will have a variety of options to satisfy their sweet and savory taste buds,” said a spokesperson.
The “Best Fried Chicken Sandwich” Olympics seemingly began when Popeyes announced they had a chicken sandwich of their own, in essence, encroaching on new territory, particularly Chick-Fil-A territory. A friendly social media battle ensued which helped to promote both sandwiches and forced long lines across the country. Some continued to pledge their loyalty to Chick-Fil-A, while others found a new meaning of life in the Popeyes chicken sandwich.
There’s no word on how long the Kennedy Fried Chicken & Donut launch will last, but if given the opportunity to taste test it, would you?
