KFC Is Launching a Fried Chicken-Stuffed, Donut Sandwich

Chicken and waffles just got some intense competition

Mealtime is about to be even more finger-lickin' good with the new KFC donut sandwich.

Start your day—or literally any meal—off on the right foot with KFC's sweet-meets-savory dish: the Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts. You could get this epic combination served separately in a basket, but why go that route when you can also have it as a sandwich? Yes, we said a sandwich!

Imagine having fried chicken nestled between two hot, glazed donuts for a bite that's a little bit breakfast, a little bit lunch, and a whole lot of flavor. You won't have to daydream much longer, as you can experience that bliss at your local KFC as early as next week.

KFC did a test run with this decadent sandwich last year before deciding to roll it out nationwide, and we can only imagine that fans of the donut burger and Snoop Dogg's Dunkin' Sandwich (that we're still dreaming about) will absolutely be on board to try this sweet and savory sandwich too. Listen, you make any kind of sandwich out of donuts and the people will flock. KFC's Chicken Donut Sandwich will only be available from Feb. 24 through March 16, though!

In celebration of this beautiful pairing, KFC is hosting a pop-up shop in Los Angeles on Saturday, Feb. 22. From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., chicken lovers can RSVP here to stop in at 615 N. La Brea Ave. for a taste of the donut combo. The first 50 guests will get a free Colonel's Dozen, which includes six chicken tenders and six glazed donuts. The rest of the country will have to wait until Feb. 24 to try the new KFC donut sandwich at participating locations nationwide.

Grab the Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts Basket meal (fried chicken or chicken tenders with a donut), the Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts Big Basket meal (with an extra donut), or the Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts Sandwich at your local KFC while supplies last. Prices range from $5.49 to $7.99.

Bonus: You can also just buy an extra donut if you want to pair it with a different chicken order. The donuts are piping hot and glazed to order, so they're really the perfect accent to any meal. Just remember, the KFC donut sandwich and other chicken-donut combos are only available until March 16 so order it while it's still hot!
