Pretty sure that this kind of novelty sandwich has been offered by random hipster food places for a while now (without anyone saying it's particularly great and the next big thing). It's a publicity stunt by KFC and little else I imagine.



There's just not going to be enough demand to justify an actual release for a chain in a market where economies of scale are everything. It'd make more sense to start selling donuts as a dessert option.

Not sure if they still do it, but KFC used to offer little packets of honey to put on their fried chicken. Not sure why everyone is so horrified by a combination of sweet and savory.

A chicken sandwich would be fine but to make it with donuts is just one more way of getting stupid type people addicted to KFC food. It probably does taste sort of good--sweet stuff usually does taste good. But it's very fattening. And donuts are fried. So now we'll get more stupid people eating stuff like that and wondering why they're so fat.

I enjoy my share of fast food but this just doesnít appeal to me. Seems gross and like overkill. Actually Iíve felt the same about the Popeye chicken sandwich also. Iíve reconsidered trying it after looking at a good photo of it and reading the ingredients etc. My mouth canít even open that big and itís a heart attack in a wrapper.

I know! Honey on chicken is delicious - but a FAR cry from a donut wrapped around a batter fried chicken patty.

"Move over Chick-fil-A and Popeyes Ė KFC may have taken the battle over chicken sandwiches to a new level.

The fast food chain announced itís testing a fried chicken sandwich that has glazed doughnuts as buns.

The sandwich will cost just under $6.

Customers can also choose a chicken and doughnuts basket meal Ė chicken tenders or bone-in chicken plus a doughnut Ė which will cost $5.49.

KFC said customers who just want a doughnut can add one to any meal for $1.

But the sweet and savory combos are not available nationwide. KFC is only testing them for a limited time in Norfolk and Richmond, Virginia, and in Pittsburgh."


Yum

Two of nature's perfect foods combined!

-white flour, white sugar, and white grease...

combined with crispy flour and grease encasing hormone saturated chicken.

Perfect
Haha, I bet the health insurance lobbyists in Washington DC will try and get that outlawed, or at least some kind of warning labels like they have on cigarettes and alcohol.

Donít think anyoneís horrified by anything but the nutritional content. I just donít like sweet things with savory things. No pineapple on my pizza, raisins in my stuffing, biscuits on my egg sandwich or honey mustard dressing. Itís a preference, not a judgment.

I think that covers all the sweet/savory combos, lol
Nope, there's a chocolate chip corn dog in the frozen section that no one is capitalizing on yet.

They donít do that, the food lobby is more powerful anyway. They manage to get pizza listed as a vegetable for school lunches LOL. They just lobby to raise insurance premiums more and cut coverage more.
