KFC introduces 5 saucy nuggets flavors

KFC’s chicken nuggets get more flavorful this month

KFC Saucy Nuggets

KFC is giving its chicken nuggets a flavorful twist this April.

On March 28, 2024, the fast-food chain officially announced the impending arrival of the new KFC Saucy Nuggets to its menu. The news comes one year after the restaurant introduced its 100% white meat, hand-breaded chicken nuggets, which quickly became a fan-favorite.

What are KFC Saucy Nuggets?

KFC Saucy Nuggets is a new menu item featuring the chain’s classic chicken nuggets completely coated in one of five delicious sauces. Three of these are brand-new sauces, while the remaining two are returning fan favorites that have inspired petitions advocating for their return. Here are the five dripping sauces you can choose from:

New Honey Sriracha

A sweet heat sauce using a blend of red chili peppers, garlic and honey. Playing into the demand for sweet heat flavor, this sauce is for you if you have a little bit of sweetness plus a little bit of heat in you.

New Korean BBQ

A sweet and savory umami sauce with soy sauce, garlic, sugar and sesame. This is the sauce for the global flavor explorers and fans of umami flavor.

New Sticky Chicky Sweet ‘n Sour Sauce

A balanced combination of sweet and tangy flavors including pineapple, garlic, vinegar and chili. If you love the taste of sweet and sour, you’re going to love this.

Returning Nashville Hot

Smoky, spicy and crispy, with an even ratio of flavor and smokiness to heat that brings balance – it brings the heat for fans of spice. In 2016, KFC was the first quick-service restaurant to offer Nashville Hot coast to coast, with Google searches for “Nashville Hot” increasing four times after the KFC Nashville Hot Chicken launch (one of KFC’s biggest launches).

Returning Georgia Gold

A honey-mustard style BBQ sauce made with vinegar, honey and savory seasoning. It’s tangy with a flavorful punch. If you’re a fan of mustard and BBQ, this one’s for you.

“KFC has never been so finger lickin’ good – literally,” said Nick Chavez, CMO KFC U.S., in a press release announcing the launch of KFC Saucy Nuggets. “We’ve entered the sauce chat. Our KFC Nuggets – made from 100% white meat chicken and hand-breaded with KFC’s secret recipe of 11 herbs & spices – dripping with these sauces create an unmatched flavor experience, with something for every palate.”

When will KFC Saucy Nuggets become available?

At $5.99, you can get 10 pieces of KFC’s new Saucy Nuggets, dripping in one of five sauce flavors, at KFC restaurants nationwide starting April 1! They are also available in a combo meal, which includes your flavor choice of 10-piece Saucy Nuggets, a medium drink, and Secret Recipe Fries for $9.99.

To celebrate the launch of the new menu item, KFC customers can also get a free 10-piece Saucy Nuggets when they spend $10 or more on a KFC.com or KFC app purchase.

Is there any other new menu item at KFC?
