  • KFC Zinger Double Down Sandwich Coming Soon to UK and Ireland

    KFC Zinger Double Down Sandwich Coming Soon to UK and Ireland

    I’m old enough to remember when the KFC Double Down sandwich was first introduced, and it was little more than a tossed off novelty product, designed to get attention from late night comedians and early morning radio DJs. But now it’s mainstream enough to generate followups, like the upcoming KFC Zinger Double Down. Of course, […]

  • KFC Pickle Fried Chicken Out Now

    KFC Pickle Fried Chicken Out Now

    Pickles and chicken are a pretty underrated pair, although anyone who’s tried to eat a southern style chicken sandwich without pickles understands how crucial a sidekick the pickle can be. KFC is exploiting that pairing in a new way, with the unveiling of KFC Pickle Fried Chicken. Here’s Colonel Sanders, or at least the ad copy […]

  • KFC Chicken & Waffles Being Tested in Select Markets

    KFC Chicken & Waffles Being Tested in Select Markets

    One menu item I’ve always lamented the absence of in the KFC menu is chicken & waffles, a southern staple that probably ranks as one of the five or six best dishes ever invented. Now, KFC Chicken & Waffles is being tested out in a few very lucky select markets. Here’s KFC’s Senior Marketing Director on the new product: […]

  • Colonel Sanders Floatie from KFC

    Colonel Sanders Floatie from KFC

    Summer and fried chicken, they go together like … well, they go together better than Colonel Sanders and pool accessories, I know that. But that hasn’t stopped the folks at KFC from coming up with an official Colonel Sanders Floatie that will make you feel like you’re floating in the pool on top of the […]

  • KFC Hot & Spicy Photoshop Campaign

    KFC Hot & Spicy Photoshop Campaign

    There’s something about the idea of fried chicken visually resembling explosive combustion that isn’t exactly appetizing to me, personally. But far be it for me to second-guess the latest ad campaign from KFC and advertising agency Ogilvy & Mather Hong Kong, especially since this KFC Hot & Spicy Photoshop campaign is probably one of the least bizarre […]

  • KFC Scratch ‘n’ Sniff Valentine’s Day Cards

    KFC Scratch ‘n’ Sniff Valentine’s Day Cards

    Today is Valentine’s Day, and if you thought KFC was gonna sit this opportunity for viral internet shares out, you must be crazier than the Colonel. Still, compared to some of the restaurant’s past promotional stunts, the KFC scratch ‘n’ sniff Valentine’s Day cards the brand announced on Twitter almost seem pedestrian. Here’s the tweet, with all […]

  • ‘KFC Comfort Zone’: A Meditation Series from KFC (Video)

    ‘KFC Comfort Zone’: A Meditation Series from KFC (Video)

    Sometimes I feel vaguely guilty about how often I find myself writing about KFC’s various promotional stunts on this site – especially since the Colonel hasn’t written me any checks. But how can I resist when the chicken chain keeps doing crazy stuff like KFC Comfort Zone, a new parody meditational web series that lets you […]

  • KFC Stocktails: “Gravy So Good You Can Drink It” (Video)

    KFC Stocktails: “Gravy So Good You Can Drink It” (Video)

    I’ve been known to enjoy some KFC chicken from time to time, but I admit I never really had any particular affection for the restaurant’s gravy. Evidently the Colonel and co. are tired of that attitude, because they’ve whipped up a line of KFC stocktails, cocktails made from the gravy (or, for the wordplay-challenged, “stock”) under […]

  • Fried Chicken Home Type: KFC Japan Unveils “Repressed Scent” Chicken

    Fried Chicken Home Type: KFC Japan Unveils “Repressed Scent” Chicken

    Cultural differences between countries can be fascinating sometimes. For instance, where I sit in the southeastern United States, it’s unthinkable to me that anyone would want to invent a fried chicken that doesn’t smell like fried chicken. KFC Japan – for some reason – has done exactly that with a “repressed scent” fried chicken called Fried […]
