American fast food restaurant chain Kentucky Fried Chicken also known as KFC has introduced a new addition to its menu. The Mac and Cheese Bowl is the new food item on the menu and is similar to their Famous Bowls only with macaroni and cheese instead of mashed potatoes and corn. The new Mac and Cheese Bowl will be available from August 26, 2019 and the customers will be able to purchase it from their nearest KFC outlet.
A spokesperson from KFC said, “This limited-time entrée is the latest in KFC food innovation, combining KFC’s rich and creamy mac and cheese, topped with KFC’s crispy popcorn chicken, and sprinkled with a three-cheese blend. The new menu item also comes in a spiced-up version with KFC’s spicy, smoky Nashville Hot sauce.” The addition to the menu has come right on the heels of Chick-fil-A’s own cheesy announcement. Earlier this month, the fast food chain had added mac and cheese to their permanent menu nationwide and is the first such addition since 2016.
Amanda Norris, the executive director of menu and packaging said that Mac and Cheese is the quintessential comfort food and something that they are excited to offer their guests at Chick-fil-A. Norris added that it is the perfect pairing with their Original Chicken Sandwich, nuggets and their grilled chicken offerings.
The addition to the menu has made headlines, but it seems as if not everyone was happy about it. Rotisserie meals provider Boston Market Tweeted a message that seemingly was aimed at Chick-fil-A and wrote, “Customer: Can I get something like Boston Market mac & cheese but mediocre? Other guys: My pleasure.” Amidst all the cheesy drama, that was unfolding, the Chick-fil-A and Popeye’s had got in to a brief spat over their chicken sandwiches. Even Wendy’s joined while insisting that they have the best chicken sandwich. Things are surely getting heated up in the chicken sandwiches industry.
