If you want to eat Kentucky Fried Chicken Popcorn without having to purchase the donuts separately, you may want to consider flights to New Zealand. KFC New Zealand recently launched Popcorn Chicken Slab, which is as potentially dangerous for your holiday diet as it sounds. The Crazy Menu Edition was introduced in Australia in 2019.
The popcorn chicken slab is designed for six people. It’s a bed of popcorn chicken nuggets between six hamburger buns, with a creamy cheese sauce and tangy barbecue sauce added for good measure. The menu item has been available at New Zealand KFC restaurants since November 2, ZMonline reports.
