KFC Introduces new potato bowl menu

Louisville, Kentucky (January 29, 2024) – Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) is expanding its popular bowl offerings with the introduction of the new “Smash’d Potato Bowl,” a hearty and flavorful dish available nationwide for $3.49. This exciting iteration of the company’s fan-favorite Famous Bowl elevates comfort food to new heights by placing potatoes at the center stage.

The Smash’d Potato Bowl features a delectable layering of creamy mashed potatoes, topped with KFC’s iconic Secret Recipe fries, warm and savory cheese sauce, crispy bacon crumbles, and a delightful three-cheese blend. This unique combination of textures and tastes offers a satisfying and nostalgic experience, all at an affordable price. For those seeking an even more substantial meal, five of KFC’s hand-breaded chicken nuggets can be added for just $2 more.

Following a successful trial run in Pittsburgh during 2023, the Smash’d Potato Bowl marks a delicious extension of KFC’s bowl offerings, which began with the introduction of the Famous Bowl in 2006 and was further enhanced with the launch of Mac & Cheese Bowls in 2019.

A Feast for the Senses:

For a limited time, customers can also indulge in the “Taste of KFC” meal, priced at $20. This value-packed combo boasts six pieces of KFC’s signature Original Recipe® chicken on the bone, accompanied by four classic sides: mashed potatoes with gravy, fresh coleslaw, corn, and creamy cheddar mac & cheese. To complete the feast, four fluffy biscuits are included.

Convenience at Your Fingertips:

Customers can leverage the KFC app or website to utilize the convenient “Quick Pick Up” feature, enabling them to order the Smash’d Potato Bowl or any other menu item in advance and skip the line upon arrival. Additionally, KFC account holders have access to exclusive deals and promotions within the app.

A Playful Invitation:

KFC’s lighthearted advertising campaign for the new menu item, titled “Lookin’ to Smash,” playfully invites customers to satiate their hunger with this scrumptious concoction of cheese, bacon, and potatoes.
