I’ve seen some of the recent food trends that I can get behind, but I’m not so sure about this one. What do you think? Check it out from Today!
Most food lovers are probably familiar with chicken and waffles. But what about chicken and … doughnuts?
Thanks to KFC, this sweet-salty combo is now officially a thing that’s generating a lot of buzz. Though the chicken chain isn’t the first place to sandwich crispy fried chicken between sweet doughnut buns, it may be the biggest restaurant to take the dish nationwide if the new sandwich is a hit.
KFC is currently testing two new menu items that combine its signature chicken with doughnuts in select markets around the U.S. Folks in Virginia (including locations in Newport News, Virginia Beach and Chesapeake), as well as people in the Pittsburgh area, will be the first to sink their teeth into this cluck-tastic combo.
The first option is the chain’s Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts Sandwich. It comes with a breaded chicken filet (seasoned with the colonel’s famous 11 herbs and spices, of course) sandwiched between two glazed doughnut buns.
The second meal is basically a fried chicken bucket, but instead of coleslaw or mashed potatoes as sides, the chicken comes with a glazed doughnut. And if customers just want another doughnut, they can order that for a $1. Understandably, the sandwich has already caused quite a stir on social media.
