KFC Serving Double Shelled Tacos Stuffed with Fried Chicken


It looks like KFC locations in New Zealand are serving up tacos as a menu option for local patrons. No, it’s not a Green/Red Burrito scenario, where a completely different menu appears alongside the staple KFC choices. Rather, the fried chicken chain has introduced new Double Shell Tacos, BBQ and Salsa.

The tacos are made with both a soft flour tortilla and a hard corn taco shell. Inside, replacing the ground beef, is a fried chicken strip, cheese slices, coleslaw, lettuce, tomatoes and a tangy “supercharged” sauce. The BBQ comes with, you guessed it, BBQ sauce and red crispy onion straws, while the Salsa comes with onions and salsa.

One can purchase a Double Shell Taco for $4.90 NZ ( $3.86 US) or two for $8 NZ ($6.31 US). They’ll be available at all participating New Zealand KFC locations for a limited time.

KFC and Taco Bell all belong to the same parent company, Yum! Brands. I guess it isn’t too much of a stretch to see them testing tacos at other locations.
