It’s Baaaaaaack: KFC Is Resurrecting The Double Down

It’s been a long four years since we first met the KFC Double Down. And while many fast food frankensandwiches have since sought to bottle that starshine and bring it to their own offerings, nothing we’ve seen since has captured the country’s interest quite like that bacon and cheese sandwich with fried chicken “buns.” And now it’s reportedly coming back to delight/disgust the nation yet again.

Silly Americans, Super Chix isn't for you.

Yum! To America: Pay No Attention To Our New Chicken Restaurant, It’s Not For You

On the one hand, it’s kind of odd that Yum! Brands, parent corporation to one chicken establishment already with KFC, quietly opened up a new chicken shop in Arlington, Texas with little to no ado. On the other hand, the company says it pulled the sneak-opening of Super Chix because it’s not like you’ll be able to eat there elsewhere in the country anytime soon, if ever. [More]

KFC Big Boss Is A Big Mac Clone With Two Giant Chicken Filets

Okay, double-decker burgers are nothing new. Chicken patty sandwiches are nothing new either. Big Mac clones are nothing new. Heck, even wacky fast food genre-bending creations from KFC are nothing new. Yet we’re fascinated with this new offering from KFC, the Big Boss. It’s exactly like the Big Mac, but with fried chicken filets instead of beef burgers. Unfortunately, you can only get it in Canada. [More]

Former Pizza Hut And KFC Buildings Never Escape Their Roots

If this great nation has a massive supply of anything, it’s abandoned chain restaurant buildings. Fortunately, ingenious business owners find new uses for them, turning fast-food joints into ethnic restaurants and … well, pretty much anything with four walls into a payday loan place or a pawn shop.

Introducing The Gooder Version Of The KFC Go Cup: The Wheel Meat

KFC’s recently launched Go Cup, which combines the thrill of eating fried foods with the exhilaration of being stuck in traffic on the way home, is just the latest from the attention-seeking food-marketers at Yum!

As McDonald’s own suggested employee budgets indicate, it’s not easy to support yourself or a family on just a job behind the counter of a fast-food restaurant.

KFC’s New Go Cup Allows You To Drive & Eat Chicken At The Same Time

We see how this works -- cups go in the cupholders!

Until this moment, eating in the car has been a complete and total disaster: Where do you put the food? Why is there no table?

Luckily, KFC has found a way to quiet the masses clamoring to be free of all fetters whilst dining en vehicle: Snack containers that fit in your cup holder. [More]

KFC Philippines Throws ‘Cheezy Bacon Fest,’ Excuse To Slather Cheese And Bacon On Everything

Other than desserts and soft drinks, there are very few things on a fast-food menu that you can’t improve by slathering them with cheese and bacon. (Maybe even desserts and soft drinks.

KFC Japan Decides To Sell Deep-Fried Soup Because Why Not?

It’s almost not even news anymore when a fast food restaurant decides to look around the kitchen and see what else can be tossed into the deep fryer. As long as it’s something edible, someone will want to eat it — and no substance is off-limits. For example: soup. You might think it’s just meant to be slurped, spooned or sipped, but because it is a food, someone was bound to fry it. Hello, KFC Japan. [More]
