CHARLOTTE, NC AREA GETS THE FIRST TASTE OF THE NEW MENU ITEM STARTING JULY 18
July 18, 2022 – LOUISVILLE, Ky. – There’s a new nugget in town. Today, Kentucky Fried Chicken® is introducing Kentucky Fried Chicken Nuggets, available in select restaurants in Charlotte, NC, starting July 18 for a limited time only.*
Made with 100 percent white meat and hand-breaded with KFC’s unique Original Recipe of 11 Herbs and Spices that made the fried chicken chain famous, the Kentucky Fried Chicken Nuggets can be enjoyed as a snack, meal on-the-go, complement to the bucket meal or even as an appetizer on the way home!
“While nuggets often come in small packages, that doesn’t mean they should have small flavor. We wanted to introduce Nuggets with the flavor and ingredients that live up to our legacy as the original fried chicken experts,” said Nick Chavez, CMO, KFC U.S. “Our Kentucky Fried Chicken Nuggets offer a new way to enjoy our distinctive 11 Herbs & Spices and will have you saying, now THAT’S Finger Lickin’ Good.”
Each juicy nugget is bursting with so much flavor it doesn’t require dipping, though that doesn’t mean you can’t dip them! The new nuggets can be paired with any of your favorite KFC sauces, including KFC Sauce, Honey BBQ, Classic Ranch or Honey Mustard.
To celebrate the arrival of KFC’s new menu item in the Queen City, KFC is delivering an exclusive first taste of the new nuggets to invaluable staff at several Atrium Health maternity center locations who help bring new nuggets into the world each and every day.
