Get ready, nugget fans! The long-awaited Kentucky Fried Chicken Nuggets are finally here, and they’re set to revolutionize the world of bite-sized chicken. Starting March 27th, KFC are launching their brand new, 100% white meat chicken nuggets, hand-breaded with KFC’s iconic Original Recipe of 11 herbs and spices, in participating locations nationwide.
So far this year the company have brought back their Double Down and also launched all new Chicken Wraps. In recent years, the KFC Classic Chicken Sandwich was their biggest new move; and one we particularly loved in this review.
Back to those Nuggets though. In 2022 the brand operated a test run of the new bite sized snacks which was a huge hit; as such the company reckon that KFC fans were craving the signature taste of the chain’s fried chicken in nugget form. Now, the whole nation can enjoy these flavor-packed nuggets, seven days a week as a permanent menu item.
Perfect as a meal, snack on-the-go, or a savory appetizer, these nuggets boast the unmistakable, world-famous taste of KFC’s Original Recipe, crafted by Colonel Harland Sanders himself. As the original fried chicken experts, KFC is bringing a new level of excitement to the classic chicken nugget experience.
KFC’s CMO, Nick Chavez, declared, “Simply put, you’ve never had chicken nuggets like these – they’re the chicken nugget America deserves, and worth the wait. Now that’s Finger Lickin’ Good!”
With prices starting at $3.49, KFC Nuggets are available in several sizes:
- 5 piece
- 8 piece
- 36-piece options
Combo options include Secret Recipe Fries, a biscuit, and a medium drink for the ultimate KFC experience.
While these juicy nuggets boast enough flavor on their own, you’re free to indulge in KFC’s selection of dipping sauces. Choose from KFC Sauce, Honey BBQ, Classic Ranch, Honey Mustard, or Buffalo Ranch to elevate your nugget experience.
So, bid farewell to bland, cookie-cutter nuggets and welcome the arrival of Kentucky Fried Chicken Nuggets, the delicious morsels that will have you falling in love with KFC’s famous Original Recipe all over again.
