I tried KFC’s new fried-chicken-and-doughnut sandwich, and it’s a near-perfect answer to the craze over the sold-out Popeyes sandwich

KFC is testing a “Chicken and Donuts” menu in 40 restaurants that features fried chicken sandwiched between two glazed doughnuts. I tried the new menu and I think KFC should roll it out nationwide. Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories. KFC is testing a “Chicken and Donuts” menu that features pairings of glazed doughnuts and the chain’s classic fried chicken. One of the new menu items is a fried-chicken-and-doughnut sandwich. Customers can also order a basket of fried chicken on the bone or chicken tenders with one or two doughnuts or add a doughnut to any meal for $1. I tried the new menu at a KFC restaurant in a Chester, Virginia location, and I now think that KFC should make the chicken-and-doughnut sandwich available nationwide. Here’s why:I arrived at a KFC restaurant in Chester, Virginia around lunchtime on Wednesday.Foto: sourceBusiness InsiderThe new menu was prominently advertised on signs outside the restaurant, at the entrance, and at the ordering counter.Foto: sourceBusiness InsiderI ordered a chicken-and-doughnut sandwich combo meal for $7.99 and a three-piece chicken-tender basket with a donut for $5.49.Foto: sourceBusiness InsiderMy order was ready within three minutes. As soon as I opened the box containing the chicken-and-doughnut sandwich, my senses were overwhelmed with an intensely sweet smell of sugar.Foto: sourceBusiness InsiderThe sandwich was piping hot — too hot to pick up. This is probably because the doughnuts had just come out of the fryer.Foto: sourceBusiness Insider A KFC representative told Business Insider’s Kate Taylor that the doughnuts are shipped to restaurants already cooked. When a customer orders them, the doughnuts are dipped in fryers and glazed.Once the sandwich had cooled down a bit, I took a bite.Foto: sourceBusiness InsiderThe savory flavoring of the chicken overpowered the sweetness of the doughnut in the best possible way.Foto: sourceBusiness InsiderThe doughnut acted as a honey-sweet accent to the chicken, which was the main event.Foto: sourceBusiness InsiderNext, I tried the chicken-and-doughnut basket.Foto: sourceBusiness InsiderOn their own, the doughnuts were a bit soggy and altogether unremarkable.Foto: sourceBusiness InsiderThey were denser than a Krispy Kreme doughnut. Their taste resembled a fried-and-glazed potato roll. This consistency and flavor works really well when paired with chicken. But I probably wouldn’t order the doughnuts on their own.Foto: sourceBusiness InsiderI came away thinking that the chicken-and-doughnut sandwich could be a real hit, even with doughnuts that on their own are underwhelming.Foto: sourceBusiness Insider I might not be alone. One KFC employee said the sandwiches are so popular that they are “flying out the window.”If the recent craze over Popeyes sold-out chicken sandwich is any indication, Americans can’t get enough chicken sandwiches. And KFC’s chicken-and-doughnut creation would help feed that demand in a new and different way.Foto: sourceBusiness InsiderThe post I tried KFC’s new fried-chicken-and-doughnut sandwich, and it’s a near-perfect answer to the craze over the sold-out Popeyes sandwich appeared first on Business Insider Nederland.
