Next week, KFC is debuting Pickle Fried Chicken and we鈥檙e, like Jessie Spano, so so excited. This unusual pairing comes after Sonic鈥檚 pickle slushie and the wild pickle icicles from last summer. Now, if like us, you think this sounds suspiciously similar to the pickle-brined fried chicken at Chic-fil-A, we assure you, this one is very different.

The Pickle Fried Chicken starts with a base of KFC鈥檚 Extra Crispy Chicken, which is then coated it in pickle sauce (a sauce containing dill, vinegar, onion, garlic, buttermilk, and black and white pepper). The KFC press release says inspiration for the new limited-time offering came from people鈥檚 asking for more pickles on the Crispy Colonel Sandwiches. We get it; pickles are really good with fried chicken鈥 why not have just combine them and cut out the middle man? You can also order the Crispy Colonel Sandwich, Extra Crispy Tenders, or Chicken Littles 鈥減ickled.鈥

鈥淧eople are crazy about pickles, and pickle-flavored products are becoming today鈥檚 trendiest menu item,鈥 said Andrea Zahumensky, KFC U.S. CMO, in a press release. 鈥淧ickles and fried chicken are a match made in heaven, with tastemakers everywhere pairing these flavors. Our guests have been clamoring for more pickles 鈥 especially since we launched the Crispy Colonel Sandwich 鈥 so we鈥檙e giving them what they want by coating our Extra Crispy Chicken with a mouthwatering pickle sauce that delivers a craveable punch of pickle in every bite!鈥

We鈥檙e into it. We just hope this pickle obsession doesn鈥檛 get any more intense. We鈥檙e not ready for it to hit our breakfast cereals.

Pickle fried chicken 鈥 yay or nay? Sound off over @BritandCo.
