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.

  • Yeah no thanks, that’s just a waste of good tasting chicken


  • Are these coming to Australia. A double whammy of unhealthy food.
    The occasional Doughnut is ok as an occasional special treat but no as a regular diet.
    I wonder which company they will be manufactured by


  • yeah nah not gunna try it luckily it is an American thing and I never have to worry


  • It sounds like a really odd combination but i would still give it a red hot go. If I didn’t like them together, I would just take them apart and eat them separately.


  • That sounds quite disgusting as well as unhealthy.


  • A food combination that is not appealing to me.


  • I love KFC and I love Krispy Kreme’s but not sandwiched together thanks. I will have a KFC meal with a $1 donut on the side thanks.


  • I think exactly the same. No, I actually don’t expect it to be a big success.


  • I am big fan of kfc chicken and doughnuts but i am not sure if am ready for that combinations ????
