Update: We reviewed it! Click here to read our review.

So, um, fried chicken and waffles has been a thing for a while now. And it’s a bit surprising that KFC has finally decided to offer the sweet and savory dish. I mean, we got chicken & waffles potato chips and Torani syrup way before KFC’s entry.

Now that we have KFC Chicken & Waffles, what should we expect?

According to the chicken chain, its take combines the Colonel’s finger licking’ good chicken with a scrumptious waffle and wraps them in the sweet embrace of Mrs. Butterworth’s syrup.

It’s available with your choice of Original Recipe, Extra Crispy chicken, or Extra Crispy Tenders. It’s also available as a sandwich that features an Extra Crispy filet and a pair of waffles drizzled with KFC’s Hot Honey sauce.

FAST FOOD NEWS: Coke Freestyle 2018 Holiday Mixes

Coke Freestyle 2018 Holiday Mixes

Coke Freestyle Machines will be getting new Holiday Mixes.

Last year, we saw North Pole Magic and Arctic Chill. In 2015, when the Holiday Mixes made their debut, there was Secret Santa, Jolly Reindeer, and Mistletoe Flow.

This year, the multi-flavor soda dispensers are getting Seagram’s Cheery Cherry Vanilla Ginger Ale, Coca-Cola Jolly Cherry Vanilla, and Sprite Merry Berry, which I’m going to assume, looking at the other two flavors, is cherry vanilla flavored.

We have no information about when the new flavors will be out, or if the flavors will be exclusive to particular convenience store or fast food chains. If you know anything, share what you know in the comments.

If you’ve tried any of them, let us know what you think of it in the comments.
