UPDATE: THIS JUST IN FROM KFC
KFC today launches Southern Bites in two new flavours – sweet and smokey Kansas BBQ, and spicy Nashville Hot – available for six weeks only. Back by popular demand, the Southern Bites are sumptuous whole chicken breast, hand breaded in a signature crispy coating, and covered in one of the delicious, flavour-packed sauces.
Inspired by the authentic flavours of the southern states of America, the two new signature flavours have legendary stories about their creation:
Nashville Hot – according to legend, the Nashville Hot flavour began by a woman who was fed-up of her boyfriend’s philandering ways. To get back at him, she served him the spiciest fried chicken she could create – covered in paprika and cayenne pepper.
Instead of hating it, he fell in love with it and opened his own Nashville Hot chicken restaurant.
Nashville Hot Bites draw inspiration from the fiery but smoky flavour, featuring rich notes of chilli and paprika.
Kansas BBQ – Henry Perry was known as, and still is, the ‘King of Kansas Barbeque’. After creating his famous BBQ meals at his street food cart, he went on to open a world famous restaurant – known for tasty smoked meats and sauces.
He’s now widely recognised for his contribution to the Kansas BBQ culture. Kansas BBQ is inspired by Perry’s smoky, sticky and sweet BBQ sauce.
Southern Bites can be bought in buckets of four or eight, or as part of a wider meal or Boneless Feast for those hungry moments.
KFC’s new Southern Bites are available until 11th March.
