KFC’s Epic New Menu Item Is Trying To Compete With Chick-fil-A
Drunk college kids everywhere, you have officially found your new favorite snack.
USA Today reports that KFC locations nationwide have rolled out a new menu item called the Mac & Cheese Bowl as part of their $5 fill-up menu.
"Mac and Cheese has a cult-like following, and bowl food is a trend that isn't going away anytime soon," said Andrea Zahumensky, KFC's chief marketing officer in the U.S., in a statement.
The budget-friendly dish features a three-cheese mac and cheese topped with the chain's Popcorn Nuggets. Customers can kick the flavor up a notch by ordering the item with Nashville hot sauce. The $5 fill up choices each come with a medium drink and cookie as well.
We'll see how well the new item stacks up against the new Chick-fil-A mac and cheese and the uber-popular Popeye's chicken sandwich, both of which have received a lot of press in the last couple of months.
