After bringing back the Mac & Cheese Bowls, satisfying everyone’s hunger for the Jack Harlow meal, and giving fans a new eating utensil, Kentucky Fried Chicken is adding another new food to the menu. Excited to try the new KFC Nuggets? It might require a road trip.

While there are many quick service restaurants that offer nuggets, not all chicken offerings are the same. Some restaurants skip the breading and others tout their multitude of dipping sauces.

Occasionally, people just want those Original Recipe 11 Herbs and Spices but they do not want to deal with a bone. Now, that option is coming to Kentucky Fried Chicken.

According to Nick Chavez, CMO, KFC U.S., “While nuggets often come in small packages, that doesn’t mean they should have small flavor. We wanted to introduce Nuggets with the flavor and ingredients that live up to our legacy as the original fried chicken experts. Our Kentucky Fried Chicken Nuggets offer a new way to enjoy our distinctive 11 Herbs & Spices and will have you saying, now THAT’S Finger Lickin’ Good.”

According to the brand, the KFC Nuggets are 100% white meat which has been hand-breaded. In addition, the nuggets can be enjoyed with any KFC dipping sauce, such as KFC Sauce, Honey BBQ, Classic Ranch or Honey Mustard. The nuggets will be offered in 8, 12, and 36 piece options. The starting price is $3.49.

While many people might already be craving these KFC Nuggets, they will not be available everywhere. Starting July 18, the new menu item will be available at select restaurants in Charlotte, North Carolina. It will be available while supplies last for a limited time.
