KFC Releases Unique Take-Out Containers Made to Fit Your Car’s Cup Holder


KFC is catering to our never-ending quest for convenience and has “officially upgraded snacking” with their new KFC Go Cups. The method behind this Go-Cup madness? Apparently, according to this infographic via KFC, the chain thinks America’s cup holders aren’t reaching their full potential.


Yes, the struggle is real. Looking to solve this national crisis, KFC created the Go Cup — plastic take-out containers featuring a cup designed to fit snugly in most cup holders, allowing for easy in-car, on-the-go grubbing.


Guests will be able to customize their Go Cups with seasoned potato wedges alongside one of the five options: a piece of Original Recipe Boneless chicken, a Chicken Little sandwich, two Extra Crispy Tenders, three Hot Wings or four Original Recipe Bites. A divider found inside the Go Cup keeps the chicken separate from the wedges and the entire shebang will set you back $2.49.

Bad enough people are texting, yappin’ away on the phone and eating in the car instead of DRIVING. Now lets make it EASIER. When Germany started importing cars big time decades ago, they couldn’t understand why dealers wanted cup holders in the cars. German engineers said “aren’t you suppose to keep both hands on the wheel and drive, and not be drinking something?” Of course, this from the people that have the autobahn 😉

Lived there 18 years and fully agree. Every time they reviewed a car from the U.S. (Chrysler mini van comes to mind) They said and it has 12 ! cup holders and doesn’t corner like all US vehicles….

Peace from Beijing

42% of Americans would be more likely to eat in their cars if the food container fit in their cup holder? We have become a nation who can’t even take the bucket of nasty chicken home to eat.

This gives me so many sads.

“MOST people drive solo”

Not where I come from buddy. The design is intended for anyone in a car. You can act like this is a stupid idea but even if someone is eating and driving would you rather them do it with food in their lap or food in a cup that fits in their cup holder?

Stop being so petulant.

Waitasec, I can’t buy a car with an ashtray built into it, because smoking is bad for me… but now we have cupholder-sized heart attacks in the form of a bucket of solidified grease so that I can “snack” on the go? That makes so much sense…
By the way, if your idea of a snack is fried potato wedges and some manner of fried chicken, you are fat, fatter, or the fattest, and you will die before the smokers.
