KFC to test two new chicken sandwiches in Tampa Bay Area for a limited time

Yesterday, Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) announced it’s testing out two new sandwiches only in Tampa Bay: an Ultimate BBQ Sandwich and Spicy Slaw Sandwich for a limited time. Participating restaurants will offer either sandwich, not both. Availability varies by location so make sure you drive up to the correct location!

“The KFC Chicken Sandwich is the best in the business, and we’re excited to expand our chicken sandwich lineup with two new premium options,” said Nick Chavez, CMO, KFC U.S. “This limited test of the Ultimate BBQ and Spicy Slaw chicken sandwiches is part of a continued commitment to giving customers more of what they want. We know our customers are looking for new, distinctive sandwich options and the Ultimate BBQ and Spicy Slaw offer flavor variety that builds on classic KFC ingredients. We think fans of spicy food will particularly love the kick of heat in our Spicy Slaw Sandwich.”

Both sandwiches are available a la carte or a combo with a medium drink and side. Here’s what you need to know about each sandwich:

  • Ultimate BBQ KFC Chicken Sandwich: Think about all the craveable flavors of a summer cookout into one delicious sandwich…it’s the Ultimate BBQ Sandwich right? It features an extra crispy, 100%  white meat filet with KFC’s Honey BBQ sauce, crispy fried onions, hickory-smoked bacon, melted cheese and pickles on a premium brioche bun.
  • Spicy Slaw Chicken Sandwich: KFC’s cole slaw is #iconic, and the Spicy Slaw Sandwich heroes the fan-favorite side. An extra crispy, 100% white meat filet is topped with cole slaw to cool down the heat of the spicy mayo and pickles on a premium brioche bun.
