When the sun’s out, it means the fun’s out and lucky for you, KFC’s limited-edition Sliders  and reversible Bucket Hat are the perfect way to ride the heatwave. 
If you really want to make an entrance, grab a pair of Sliders (£24.99) with KFC’s iconic Colonel Sanders and ‘Always Original’ slogan on the front.  The reversible Bucket Hat (£21.99) has two fresh looks with red and white stripes on one side, and Finger Lickin’ chicken drumsticks on the other. 
What's as important as looking good? Doing good. With this merch drop, KFC will be giving a portion of profits to the KFC foundation to support young people across the UK.

So what are you waiting for? Strike while it’s hot and nab your Sliders and Bucket Hat at www.kfcshop.co.uk, and be sure to check out KFC’s other merch too. And if you spot the socks (£8.99), you could try the  socks and sliders combo (promise we won’t judge).

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 almost £6 million to our charity partners who are passionate about developing and nurturing young people across the country.
