KFC Offers Up New Vintage Inspired Holiday Buckets

KFC vintage holiday buckets

Kentucky Fried Chicken is bringing back bucketloads of 60s nostalgia this year with the re-release of some of their most iconic holiday buckets. Since the 1960s, the chicken-chain has released special buckets all around the world with a variety of holiday themes.

With past years in mind, the brand is looking back to 1966 and 1971 in particular with chicken bucket designs for the holidays of 2020. Both replica designs have been apparently been recreated down to the smallest details, including the retired tagline which we only just found about ourselves! “North America’s Hospitality Dish,” featured on the 1966 bucket.

The new designs will be available at all US locations starting November 24. Limited quantities will be available.
