Starting today, KFC is bringing back its popular offer of Famous Bowls for only $5*, a finger-lickin' good deal on craveable comfort food. Famous Bowls, a fan-favorite KFC menu item, are made fresh to order and start with a foundation of creamy mashed potatoes, topped with bite-sized chunks of crispy chicken and sweet corn, drizzled with hot homestyle gravy and topped with a shredded three-cheese blend.

Three-time GRAMMY-nominated rap superstar Jack Harlow teams up with acclaimed comedian and entrepreneur, Druski, to promote the $5 deal.
