DOWN TO CLUCK?

Have you found that special someone who you love more than KFC?

No, didn’t think so. Me neither.

But if you’ve found someone who’s basically the chicken to your gravy, or the herbs to your spices, then let them know with a romantic whiff of KFC’s iconic fried chicken.

KFC and Moonpig have teamed up to launch a range of exclusive Valentine’s Day cards. Choose from eight different designs, all created by Moonpig, to convey your affection with a Colonel Sanders twist.

There’s even a card which boasts state-of-the-art Scratch‘n’ Sniff technology (limited availability only) to give your Valentine the ultimate finger lickin’ craving.

If your lover isn’t into the meat, there’s something else to whet their appetite… a**Vegan-tines card which pays homage to KFC’s latest launch, the Vegan Burger.

So don’t be that person and leave it to the last minute. The KFC range is exclusively available now through Moonpig here.

And the good news – 10% of all proceeds will be donated to the KFC Foundation, so it won’t just be your Valentine you’re giving some lovin’ to.

About KFC:

In 1952 Colonel Harland Sanders opened the first KFC restaurant in Utah. Since then, his perfectly crafted Original Recipe chicken and its secret recipe of 11 herbs and spices has become famous all over the world, and today we have over 900 restaurants across the UK and Ireland.

The Colonel was all about doing things the right way. That means our chicken is delivered fresh from farm to restaurant in 48 hours. It’s prepared carefully by hand in-restaurant by trained cooks, using the very best chicken reared to strict welfare standards. In July 2019 we took the next big step in our welfare journey and signed up to the Better Chicken Commitment, a set of six criteria that have been designed to improve the lives of all chickens within the KFC supply chain, by 2026. That’s what makes our food so finger lickin’ good.

The right way also means serving fresh proper food, packed with flavour. So, we’ve worked hard to make nutritional improvements across our menu, so our fans have as much choice as possible, and we’ve committed to removing 20% of calories per serving by 2025.

The Colonel also believed in feeding promise, wherever it’s found. So that’s why we invest heavily in the development and careers of our 27,000 employees – we were the first restaurant to launch an honours degree. And since its 2015 launch, our KFC Foundation has paid out grants totalling £5 million to our charity partners who are passionate about developing and nurturing young people across the country.
