KFC Does It Again With A “Cheetos” Chicken Mashup!
Once again, KFC has stepped up with a bold and wildly over-the-top food mashup: their fried chicken and Cheetos!
I found the story on DailyMail.com – a great place to find the wildest stories!
According to The Daily Mail:
“The chain first teased that it was testing the item in a few lucky locations in North Carolina, Virginia, and Georgia earlier this year, but the special Crispy Colonel fried chicken sandwich topped, which is topped with Cheetos puffs and Cheetos sauce, proved so popular that it is being released nationwide starting July 1.
But the sandwich — which includes fried chicken smothered in Cheetos-flavored sauce, a layer of mayo, and a helping of actual Cheetos snacks packed between the buns — is only available for a limited time.”
New Yorkers Get The First Taste!
The Daily Mail goes on to report that New York is going to get a first taste of this new menu next week!
KFC is hosting an ‘All Orange Everything’ pop-up event at the KFC on 14th Street in Manhattan on Thursday, June 27.
From 4pm to 8pm, those who drop by can try the sandwich, as well as other exclusive menu items like Cheetos-fied KFC Hot Wings, which are topped with Cheetos sauce and dust!
I read “DailyMail.com” every day for great reporting around the world, and lots of fun stories like this one – you can see more of it, along with their look at other Cheetos-inspired mashups by clicking on the story here:
And as for KFC, this mashup is nothing new – they have gotten a ton of press over the past few years by launching a whole array of wild chicken recipes – here are my three favorite food mashups from the venerable chicken restaurant:
Yes, a burger that has “fried chicken buns!” No worry about carbs here, and the buns for their burger were made with chicken! See the recipe by clicking here:
Here’s another wild idea they toss out last year:
Anyone who loves a chicken sandwich with LOTS of dill pickle, KFC saved you a step by injecting them right into the chicken!

Finally, no fast food favorite was safe from the KFC wizards:
The “Double Down Hot Dog!”
That’s right, my third favorite mashups involved a hot dog bun made from fried chicken! See how that turned out by clicking here:
