It is time to get dipping with the new signature KFC sauces.
What goes perfectly with KFC Extra Crispy Tenders? The new signature KFC sauces are a required part of a KFC meal. Whether you like a classic flavor, bold spice or even some sweet and tangy, these KFC sauces complete any meal.
According to a recent DoorDash survey, “75 percent of Americans say their meal is ruined if the sauces are forgotten.” Everyone has been there. You look in the bottom of the bag and there’s no sauce. While no one ever really goes back to the driver thru, you hope that there some hidden, leftover packages in the pantry or “that” drawer.
For many people, the sauce is the most important part of the fried chicken meal. While some people might argue about the biscuits, the sauce seems to bring everything together. That sauce love is why KFC revamped its sauce line-up.
The new signature KFC sauces are Classic Ranch, Honey BBQ and Honey Mustard. These three sauces join the KFC Hot Sauce.
Looking at the three revamped sauces, the flavors are quite approachable. While other chicken restaurants have embraced big, bold flavors, KFC is taking a different approach. These flavors are classic and have wide appeal. According to KFC, that flavor profile was intentional.
“When we set out to create a new signature dipping sauce, we went right to the experts – our customers – to find out what made a sauce best-in-class for dipping,” said Andrea Zahumensky, chief marketing officer, KFC U.S. “We went through 50 iterations, and their response to this recipe was overwhelming!”
While the new sauces deliver what customers want, KFC is encouraging a little playfulness with all that dipping. With the growing popularity of “board eating” (aka creating a big board of food, like cheese, pancakes or even dessert), KFC Head Chef Chris Scott created three KFCharcuterie boards.
The rise of “boards” is a fun way to allow families to graze eat. It gives each person a little control over their meal and adds some creativity to eating. Putting all the KFC Extra Crispy Tenders, sauces and other foods on a board is a great dinner, homegate or just afternoon snacking.
Here are the three KFCharcuterie recommendations.
KFC Little Dipper
This small board is perfect as a snack. The KFC Extra Crispy Tenders are served with some Secret Recipe Fries. You can pair it with your favorite sauce or sample all three to determine a favorite flavor.
Kentucky Game Night Trio
When it comes to game night, the competition can get heated. With the Kentucky Game Night Trio, this board will keep that hangry level to a minimum. Combine the tenders, fries and sauces with some other items, like celery and carrots. Remember a few vegetables could help you remember the answer to that trivia question.
Ultimate Family Fill Up
Parents know that families can have big appetites. This family feast has everything to feed those hungry kids. From KFC biscuits to mashed potatoes, it is a smorgasbord of tastiness.
KFC Extra Crispy Tenders and the new signature KFC sauces are available in combo meals or Fill Up orders. Guests can order at restaurants, online or via their preferred delivery service.
