TORONTO – KFC Canada is adding heat to the “chicken sandwich wars” with a new spicy sandwich called the Kentucky Scorcher. It’s so hot, the company says, it comes with free milk – while supplies last.
The sandwich features a thick-cut chicken breast, topped with signature Scorcher sauce, spicy mayo and pickles, all on a toasted bun. The infamous Carolina Reaper gives the Scorcher sauce its signature heat, according to KFC Canada. KFC Canada is offering free milk with every purchase of the sandwich, while supplies last, to help customers tame the heat.
“Spicy offerings these days are made for the masses and lack the intensity Canadians are craving, so we set out to create a sandwich that truly delivers on heat,” said Ira Dubinsky, Brand and Innovation director, KFC Canada. “We tested dozens of hot sauces and peppers to ensure a balanced combination of spice and flavor, and the Scorcher sauce brought tears to our eyes. This chicken is not for chickens – we’ve got the milk in case you need it.”
The Kentucky Scorcher is now available at www.kfc.ca, through the KFC App and participating KFC locations across Canada.
