- Kentucky Fried Chicken on Tuesday began testing a limited-edition chicken sandwich loaded with Cheetos.
- The Cheetos Sandwich is dressed with a special Cheetos sauce and a layer of the crunchy chip.
- So far the chain is offering it only at locations in select cities in North Carolina, Virginia, and Georgia.
If you haven’t already broken your New Year’s resolution to eat healthier, the new Cheetos Sandwich from Kentucky Fried Chicken may just tempt you to do so.
On Tuesday, fast-food giant KFC announced its newest limited-edition sandwich, and it’s a match made in junk-food heaven. The restaurant behind the Double Down is teaming up with snack-chip king Cheetos for an unbelievable dish.
The Cheetos Sandwich is loaded with crunch. There’s a hand-breaded, extra crispy chicken fillet that’s coated with special Cheetos sauce and placed on a toasted bun loaded with mayonnaise and a layer of crunchy Cheetos.
The sandwich is being tested in certain KFC locations
“Both KFC and Cheetos have dedicated fanbases loyal to each new creation,” a KFC representative said in a statement. “It only made sense to merge these two iconic brands together to provide an irresistible and flavorful sandwich that gives the best of both worlds.”
According to the KFC spokesperson, the sandwich delivers a ‘blast of craveable Cheetos in every bite’
The sandwich is still in launch mode, so it’s not for sale at every KFC. Right now, you can find it only in Greensboro, North Carolina; Raleigh, North Carolina; Roanoke, Virginia; Richmond, Virginia; and Greenville, Georgia KFC locations.
But although it’s a limited offering, if this sandwich receives as much attention as last year’s Kentucky Fried Chicken & Waffles, a nationwide rollout could be in its future. Bon appetit!
