Following ongoing frustrations about rising fast-food prices, KFC is offering its customers new ways to save on their favorite menu items. On Monday, the chicken chain announced its new "Taste of KFC Deals" value menu, which will be available until the end of the year.

The new menu includes three different meal options that are available every day at KFC restaurants across the U.S. Customers can also order these on KFC's website and mobile app.

The $4.99 Meal for One (540-810 calories) includes two pieces of chicken—a drum and a thigh—plus mashed potatoes and gravy and a biscuit. Another option is the four-piece Meal for Two (1,130-1,820 calories), which features a drum, thigh, breast, and wing, along with mashed potatoes and gravy and two biscuits. The price of this meal varies by location.

KFC also noted that prices, participation, and product offerings may vary, with prices being higher in Alaska, Hawaii, and California, as well as on third-party ordering websites.
