KFC Testing ‘Sweet & Savory’ Go Cups with Funnel Cake Fries

funnelcakefries

The great thing about chicken is it’s notoriously dessert-friendly. Even the craziest of palates would have to admit “steak and waffles” doesn’t quite have the same ring. So it makes a lot of sense that KFC is testing a new version of its popular “Go Cups,” now featuring funnel cake “fries” in place of potato wedges.

Now available in select locations in Baltimore, Md., the ‘Sweet & Savory’ Go Cups feature strips of fried funnel cake topped with sugar and cinnamon, along with all the regular Go Cup offerings such as Chicken Littles, Crispy Tenders, or Hot Wings.

According to Brand Eating, the cups are being tested at $2.49 a person until the infamous 4/20, which is kind of genius if you think about it. Gotta love a company that knows its clientele, *wink, wink*

TL;DR: Chicken and waffles funnel cakes just got a heck of a lot more portable, wheeeee.

KFC China Offers Novelty Thin-Sliced, 6-Layer Beef Burger

While most of us associate KFC with crispy, fried chicken, the chain offers several beef items overseas in China, the latest creation being the Layered Beef Burger. Described as a “six layers of thin-sliced tender beef, cheese, lettuce and mushrooms,” the new item bears a resemblance to a teriyaki burger’s patty.

Available for 16 yuan ($2.61 US), this item isn’t the only thing on the menu that’ll have you giving the side-eye. Other non-poultry menu items include the other white meat, aka pork, as well as rice dishes and meatballs. A name change might be in order, maybe Kentucky Fried Everything if that’s how they’re gonna play us. Of course, we’re just mad we’re stuck with to-go cups while the rest of the world gets delicious beef.

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

KFC-Go-Cups

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.
