KFC® announced last week it is introducing a very limited-time menu item, Pickle Fried Chicken, as a short-term answer to the customer requests for more pickles on their Crispy Colonel Sandwich™.
“People are crazy about pickles, and pickle-flavored products are becoming today’s trendiest menu item,” said Andrea Zahumensky, KFC U.S. CMO in a press release. “Pickles and fried chicken are a match made in heaven, with tastemakers everywhere pairing these flavors.”
By adding this new flavor experience to its menu, KFC is the first national quick-service restaurant to bring pickle-flavored fried chicken to the masses, just as it was the first QSR to broadly introduce Nashville Hot-style fried chicken in 2015.
KFC’s Pickle Fried Chicken is now available as a Crispy Colonel Sandwich™, Extra Crispy™ Tenders, Chicken Littles® and Extra Crispy™ chicken in participating U.S. restaurants until it runs out. Each restaurant will only receive enough ingredients to pickle sauce its chicken for a few weeks and once it’s gone, it’s gone for good.
