The new KFC donut sandwich has fans and foes riled up

Kentucky Fried Chicken is jumping into the sandwich war between Popeyes and Chick-fil-A with a crazy, new fried chicken and donuts mashup.

KFC has announced that it is testing a new combo meal featuring fried chicken strips and donuts — the ultimate marriage of salty and sweet (and maybe a little gluttony).

Unfortunately, only fast-food fans in Norfolk and Richmond, Va., and Pittsburgh, Pa., will be lucky enough to try the decadent duo. A press release for the “Chicken and Donuts” menu outlines various combinations involving bone-in chicken or tenders with one or two donuts starting at $5.50, as well as a fried chicken sandwich with two donuts used as buns starting at $6.

And, for just $1, customers can add a hot donut to any meal on their regular menu. Of course!

The Southern-inspired joint won’t be making donuts on-site and, instead, will arrive at stores already baked. Upon order they will get a quick dunk in a hot-oil fryer before getting dipped in a warm, vanilla glaze so that they’re hot and fresh-ish.

The announcement has already divided social media as some are calling the promotion a harbinger of the health demise of our nation.

“KFC wants us to die so badly,” wrote multimedia editor Blair Guild on Twitter.

Adds market forecast site @RANsquawk, “I’m not one to bang the drum with “clean eating” but this sounds absolutely horrendous.”

Meanwhile, junk food lovers across the country are planning a pilgrimage.

“Who wants to go on a road trip with me?” tweeted reporter Kathryn Watson, echoing news editor Travis Lyles who also said, “Road trip, anyone?”

The delicious development has some wondering whether KFC had been inspired by another recent fried chicken-related uproar.

Tweeted reporter Michael Sheetz, “Your move @ChickfilA, @PopeyesChicken.”
