Will Kentucky Ever Get KFC’s Donut Fried Chicken Sandwich?
It's been a few years since I sunk my teeth into one of those Krispy Kreme burgers at the Kentucky State Fair.
It's been a few years since I spit my one and only bite of one of those Krispy Kreme burgers into a nearby trash can and tossed the rest of the burger in on top of it.
Sugar and beef don't work for me at all, it seems.
Now...sugar and chicken? That's a different story, altogether.
When I have wings or tenders, I like the sauce or even the dry rub to have at least a hint of sweet.
So I should be very excited at the prospect of a "donut fried chicken sandwich" from KFC, right?
Well...I think "excited" might be too strong a word. But because we're talking chicken, here, and not beef, this might actually work.
Let's say I'd approach it with caution.
Right now, however, I'd have to take a fairly lengthy road trip if I wanted to approach it at all.
KFC is currently test-marketing the new sandwich and the closest location is Pittsburgh.
No, I don't want one that bad.
But I would try it, sure.
CincyWeekend.com's description of the sandwich is exactly what you'd expect--a piece of fried chicken between two donuts.
KFC is also trying out a Fried Chicken & Donut Basket meal which features a piece of bone-in chicken or tender paired with a donut.
I think that's actually weird. The sandwich makes more sense.
But again, we're a ways away from getting the new donut fried chicken sandwich at one of our KFC restaurants, both literally and maybe chronologically.
But if it shows up around here, I'm game.
