News: KFC - New KFC Bites

The Colonel fries up new KFC Bites starting this month. Essentially new chicken nuggets at Kentucky Fried Chicken, KFC Bites are chicken breast pieces breaded in the Colonel's Original Recipe and fill the gap between Popcorn Chicken and Chicken Strips.

To promote them, KFC is offering an order of six KFC Original Recipe Bites, a side, and a drink for $3.99 for a limited time.

They're also available a la carte in 6-piece and 10-piece portions.

KFC is marketing them as "Bite-sized chicken's all grown up" and you can check out the 15 second TV spot below:


I've always wonder why KFC doesn't offer nuggets here in the States since it seems right up their alley.

  1. I've have got popcorn chicken peices that are bigger than these things. It is a total rip off.

  2. Bull. The weight of a 10 piece bites is 7 grams less than a large order of popcorn chicken, yet these have way less fat and carbs, and more protein. That adds up to 'more filling than popcorn chicken.'

  3. Where did you see the nutrition info? I didn't see it on the website.

  4. Back in the early to mid 90's KFC used to sell chicken nuggets. Shaped about like McD's nuggets but had the 7 secret spice recipe they were 10x better than McD's. But for some reason they took them and the Chicken Fried Steak off of the menu.
