Kentucky Fried Chicken, or KFC, is one of the most recognizable fast-food chicken restaurants in the United States. They have great deals on fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy. Now, the restaurant chain is introducing a new dessert to add to its popular meal deals.
The new dessert is a Cinnabon Dessert Biscuit, which is a sweet biscuit with traditional Cinnabon ingredients and flavors. This sugar-filled pastry concoction is a mashup of KFC’s melt in your mouth biscuits, which come topped with Cinnabon’s signature brown sugar glaze and cream cheese frosting on top.
Customers will need to buy a minimum of a 10-piece meal to get these desserts for free. However, these desserts are also available for purchase individually for $1 each, or four for $3. The Lousiville, Ky. restaurant chain announced that the new Cinnabon Dessert Biscuit will be available through June 30 at all participating KFC locations.
Andrea Zahumensky, KFC’s chief marketing officer, said in a press release, that “Our new Cinnabon Dessert Biscuits were created just in time for Mother’s Day to give mom a delectable sweet treat that’s uniquely KFC. To top it off, wish mom a happy Mother’s Day the KFC way by sending her a video of a shirt-ripping, finger-lickin’ performance cooked up by a troupe of hunky KFC Chickendales.”
This is not the first time that two fast-food joints have teamed up together for a new and limited edition menu item. However, this is the first dessert. The new Cinnabon Dessert Biscuits are available in a four pack, so they are perfect for a family meal, which is also the target market of KFC’s meal deals.
Mother’s Day is a big day for the KFC chicken chain. The KFC company sells about 300,000 meals, including 3 million pieces of chicken and 900,000 servings of mashed potatoes and gravy on the popular Mother’s Day holiday every year. KFC operates about 4,000 restaurants in the United States, all of which are participating in this limited dessert release.
