KFC recently announced that it added Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts to its menus through March 16th (or for as long as supplies last).
With less than a month to order KFC’s world-famous Extra Crispy fried chicken with warm, fresh, glazed-to-order donuts, we didn’t waste any time sending Stetson out to give it a shot. Collin’s daughter, Piper, had the chance to try some too. Read on to get their take on this sweet and savory combo!
Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts are available in the form of a basket meal and a sandwich. We found the doughnuts themselves to be rather tasty, although they’re denser than what you’d get at Krispy Kreme. Naturally, there’s a higher degree of structural integrity required to support a chicken donut sandwich. 😋
Has the chicken sandwich craze reached tasty new heights or bottomed out with a sticky new low?
Here are our honest opinions:
My daughter Piper was like – fried chicken and donuts? What?! That’s weird. However, my normal keto-eating self was thinking – “I would love to have fried chicken and donuts in my mouth stat.”
The crispy fried chicken and glaze dripping off the donut… oh my. I’m all about the sweet and savory combo… and love both fried chicken and donuts. However, I did abstain since this isn’t even close to being keto, lol, and let Piper do the taste test. Just like her mama, she fell in love with this combo at first bite.
She was surprised at how good they tasted together, and couldn’t believe that KFC made such a yummy glazed donut. And no, I wouldn’t say fried chicken and donuts are a healthy option – but hey, it’s fun to enjoy stuff like this on occasion!
I didn’t know what to expect going into this experience. I thought it sounded gross to eat a piece of chicken with a glazed donut. Turns out I was so wrong, and it was so good! The combo that I thought seemed strange at first made my taste buds do a happy dance. 💃 Don’t knock it until you try it!
KFC’s Chicken and Doughnuts are only available through March 16th, which is probably in the best interest of our nation’s collective health. If sampling this sweet and savory combo is on your bucket list or even if you’re even just remotely curious about how it tastes, you’ll want to try it while you can.
Honestly, we can’t think of a more enjoyable way to consume 1,100 calories worth of artery-clogging grease and glaze. Just don’t make a habit of it, and be sure to grab extra napkins. Enjoy! 😉
