LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Following the popularity of Chicken & Waffles last November, KFC, a unit of Yum! Brands Inc., will reintroduce the product to participating locations across the country for a limited time.
The Kentucky Fried Chicken & Waffles will be available from March 23 until April 29, while supplies last. Meal options include Extra Crispy fried chicken or Extra Crispy tenders with a side of Mrs. Butterworth’s syrup starting at $5.49. The offering also is available as a sandwich featuring KFC’s recently-introduced sweet-heat Hot Honey fried chicken as a breast fillet between two waffles for $5.99. A big basket is also available which features two waffles and two syrups, with a choice of two-piece white meat, three-piece dark meat or four-piece tenders for just $7.99.
"We expected people would love Kentucky Fried Chicken & Waffles when we launched it in 2018," said Andrea Zahumensky, chief marketing officer, KFC US. "But we underestimated how much love there would be, so we're bringing it back just four months later.”
The waffles are made with a yeast-raised dough instead of a batter and incorporate pearl sugar imported from Belgium that contributes sweetness and a crunchy outer texture.
