As summer starts to fizzle, KFC is here to sizzle by heating things up with the seriously spicy Zinger Popcorn Bucket. 

The all-time fan favourite Popcorn Chicken has levelled up with a fiery twist that’s not for the fainthearted. If you’re team Korma, someone whose ideal seasoning is salt and pepper, lemon and herb, or enjoy watching bath bomb reviews on YouTube…this level of hawt might be too much to hen-dle. 

So, for those that love our 100% chicken breast Popcorn Chicken and dare to pop it like it’s hot, it’s available in-restaurant, for takeaway and mobile ordering via the KFC app for just £5.99. And if you do happen to stop by a KFC restaurant, you’ll have the chance to upgrade to a meal with Regular Fries and a drink for just £1.50. But don’t worry, you can also get it on delivery for £7.99. 

Go and get it while it’s hot…

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.
