It’s a bit of a dubious flavour combination but KFC’s chicken and doughnut burger is causing quite a sensational stir amongst its fans.

The fast-food giant is currently testing out sandwiching its signature crispy fried chicken between sweet doughnut buns.

There are two salty/sweet menu items to pick from:

KFC & Donuts Sandwich – which comes with a crumbed chicken filet (flavoured with the Colonel’s famous 11 herbs and spices, of course) sandwiched between two glazed doughnut buns.

Then there’s also a KFC chicken-and-doughnut meal, served with a glazed doughnut on the side, rather than the more conventional coleslaw or mashed potatoes.

The chicken-and-doughnut meal will cost $5.50 for one doughnut and $7.50 for two doughnuts. The sandwich is priced at $6, or as a combo meal for $8. KFC said customers can also add a doughnut – served hot – to any meal for $1. (all prices in US Dollars)

What A Combination!

The internet has gone a bit dough-nutty in response to the new, rather odd offerings. Most are commenting about the dubious ‘health’ factor of the super sandwich.

It is yet unknown what the nutritional value of the new sandwich is, but we can take a pretty informed guess, that it would be on the larger side of the scale.

Will It Come Here?

The experiment is currently being conducted Virginia and the Pittsburgh area in the US and if successful, KFC will then expand the cluck-tastic combo nationally and even internationally.

The doughnuts apparently arrive at stores already cooked, and when a customer puts in their order, the doughnuts will be dipped in the fryers and glazed with a vanilla icing to ensure they are hot and fresh.

Make Your Own Doughnut Chicken Burger

In the meantime, while we wait for this ‘delicious’ duo to hit our shores, simply grab two Krispy Kreme’s original glazed doughnuts and sandwich it together with a KFC chicken breast and you’ve got your very own Doughnut Chicken Burger.

  • This is very wrong (and unhealthy).


  • Yes sure


  • I’m intrigued and would totally try it!


  • No, I wouldn’t try this.


  • Oh No this is not something that appeals to me at all. I cant see any benefit to our bodies eating this and I would be really sad to see kids eating this as well.


  • This sounds terrible definitely not something I’m interested in trying.


  • Oh yuk, this looks to me like a heart attack waiting to happen


  • I know some sweet and savoury combinations really work and are huge hits. I’m not sure I would even try this, and I am quite adventurous with new foods


  • This looks soooo gross!!!


  • I am wondering how popular this will be.


  • No thank you not for this family. Not even trying it out by buying he donuts either.


  • I like KFC , but I will skip this one.


  • I don’t think this would make a very nice meal


  • I would eat the middle first and the top and bottom for dessert afterwards


  • I love both but not together..


  • Gross on so many levels……????


  • Um. No thanks. I believe in keeping main meal and sweets separate.


  • please no – I like my chicken and desert separate!


  • Looks disgusting and I’m a KFC lover!


  • Im assuming this is a play on the whole Chicken and Waffles mix that the US is so in love with? I’ll quite happily eat the doughnut and the chicken… but probably not at the same time…
