It’s a match made in finger-lickin’ heaven.
For four weeks starting July 1, KFC and Cheetos will marry their signature fare in a new collaboration that sprinkles magical, orange Cheeto dust on a chicken sandwich. In a win for advocates of chips on sandwiches, the KFC Cheetos Sandwich drenches KFC’s crispy fried chicken in a “special Cheetos sauce” on top of a bed of Cheetos. Kentucky Fried Chicken’s own Colonel Sanders tweeted on Thursday that he was “finger lickin’ thrilled” to announce the mashup. It’s the latest development in fast food’s love affair with the crunchy cheese-flavored snacks.
