After an overwhelmingly successful test earlier this year, Kentucky Fried Chicken and fan-favorite Cheetos are giving fans nationwide access to the sought-after Cheetos Sandwich for just four short weeks beginning July 1.
A special twist on the KFC Crispy Colonel sandwich, the dangerously cheesy combination is made by coating KFC’s juicy, hand-breaded Extra Crispy chicken filet with special Cheetos sauce and placing it on a toasted bun with the Colonel’s mayo and a “pinch of the thumb, index and middle fingers” layer of crunchy Cheetos.
To celebrate the nationwide launch of the sandwich, Chester Cheetah will be taking over Manhattan’s 14th street KFC restaurant on Thursday, June 27, for an exclusive “All Orange Everything” pop-up event, where consumers can try the sandwich for the first time, in advance of the in-restaurant availability, July 1.
Both KFC and Cheetos have dedicated and passionate fanbases, so it only made sense to merge these two iconic brands together to provide an irresistible and flavorful sandwich that offers the best of both worlds. Following the limited time launches of Pickle Fried Chicken, Kentucky Fried Chicken & Waffles and Cinnabon Dessert Biscuits, the KFC Cheetos Sandwich is another example of how KFC is continuing to take food innovation to new heights, creating delicious menu items that fans flock toward.
The exclusive pop-up event will feature the Cheetos Sandwich as well as one-of-a-kind KFC and Cheetos mash-up menu items including:
