WALKERS is launching brand new Kentucky Fried Chicken-flavoured crisps, in partnership with KFC.
Available nationwide from Wednesday (January 13), the new collaboration brings the crunch of Walkers MAX ridged crisps together with the taste of KFC’s iconic fried chicken.
There are two flavour options: Walkers MAX Kentucky Fried Chicken, and Walkers Max Double Crunch Zinger.
The Walkers MAX Kentucky fried chicken are designed to taste just like KFC’s original recipe chicken.
The Walkers MAX Double Crunch are spicy like KFC’s zinger fillets and feature extra deep ridges for more flavour on each crisp.
The packs will be available in a variety of sizes including a 50g ‘grab bag’ size and larger 140g sharing bags.
Individual retailers and supermarkets will set their own prices but Walkers has set the Recommended Retail Price for the grab bags at 85p, while the sharing packs have an RRP of £1.99.
For several years now fans have been bombarding Walkers on social media asking for KFC flavoured crisps.
In May last year, the crisp-makers launched several flavours inspired by popular restaurants including Nando’s Peri Peri, Las Iguana’s Chilli Con Carne, Gourmet Burger Kitchen’s Cheeseburger and Yo Sushi’s Katsu Curry.
There were even two Pizza Express flavours to choose from: the American Hot and and classic Margherita. But fans were disappointed not to have a KFC option.
Now, at last, fans can treat themselves to not one, but two different KFC flavours.
Even better, the back of each packet of the new crisps will also double up as a 2-for-1 voucher that can be spent at KFC.
Customers will be able to use the packets to get 50% off when they buy two of KFC’s “meal for one” range.
The offer can be redeemed via drive thru or takeaway and the vouchers are valid until July 31, 2021.
