KFC launches chicken wings for the first time

KFC is capitalizing on football season with its own version of the most popular super bowl party food: bone-in chicken wings. The Colonel Sanders-approved finger food dubbed Kentucky Fried Wings come slathered in one of three different sauces: Buffalo, honey BBQ and Nashville hot.

The Most Famous Fast Food Menu Items of All Time

You can get a six-piece order of wings for $5, a 12-piece for $9.99, a 24-piece for $18.99 and a 48-piece for $36.99. Because it’s such a massive order, the 48-piece is available for delivery only, but you can get everything else in-store.

Typically, game day wings come from pizza places and restaurants that specialize in them (like Wingstop or Buffalo Wild Wings). But wait times can get pretty long and when you’re hungry it’s tough to be patient. Being a fast food chain, KFC’s idea is to nix the lengthy wait time without sacrificing quality. You don’t even need to make a trip down the drive-thru unless you want to.

Now through Nov. 24, customers in the U.S. will get free delivery on orders of $12 or more when they order KFC through Grubhub or Seamless. The discount will be applied automatically, so you don’t need to use a code. The chicken wings are a permanent menu item, so you can snack up throughout football season straight to the Super Bowl. And if you don't happen to have a KFC near you, try out another one of the the best Buffalo wings in America.
