In mid-March 2023, KFC introduced a menu item that has made their fans go wild. In fact, in less than eight weeks, they have sold over 100 million of this new menu item. So what is that new item? It’s their nuggets of course.
According to a press email that we received in the United States, more than 100 million KFC nuggets has been sold. It seems as if KFC has found exactly what their fans are looking for when it comes to the perfect nugget. (And we aren’t surprised at all.)
So what makes these nuggets so special? Of course, it probably comes as no surprise that they are hand-breaded and fried like their classic Original Recipe chicken. And that means 11 herbs and spices that we already know and love, giving us nuggets unlike anything we’ve ever tried before.
KFC is giving us delicious nuggets that are flying out of restaurants
If you were looking to try these flavorful chicken nuggets for yourself, they are available at participating restaurants, nationwide right now. They come in combo options and à la cart.
You can get these nuggets in a five piece, an eight piece, a 12 piece, or a 36 piece option. And if you do pick up a five piece that will cost you just $2.99. Obviously, it does depend on where you are for this price, as we do know that there are some places where it may be a little more expensive.
We are so excited to give these new chicken nuggets from KFC a try for ourselves. We already love their original recipe, chicken, and knowing that they chose to give us nuggets featuring the same recipe of herbs and spices with the perfect style of breading has us ready to snag, a 12 piece for snacking. In fact, we think these nuggets would even be perfect for adding to a salad and making a crispy chicken salad at home.
There are so many great ways to enjoy chicken from KFC. And it’s not just about eating it off the bone or dipping those nuggets in a sauce.
