LOUISVILLE, Ky., June 10, 2024  /PRNewswire/ -- KFC is making it a saucy summer with a new roster of its popular KFC Saucy Nuggets and wallet-friendly everyday deals (all available starting today).

KFC's popular saucy nuggets are getting a shakeup just in time for summer! Based on consumer feedback, KFC selected this season's sauces, keeping two fan-favorites, Korean BBQ and Honey Sriracha Saucy Nuggets. Joining the summer sauce line-up is Honey BBQ, a KFC fan-favorite that will be sauced on KFC Nuggets for the first time, with more saucy news to come later this summer:  

  • Honey BBQ: A sweet, smoky, and tangy sauce with brown sugar and honey rounding out the tanginess of tomato and secret spices. This fan-favorite classic BBQ sauce is made for the traditionalists.
  • Korean BBQ: A sweet and savory umami sauce with soy sauce, garlic, sugar, and sesame. This is the sauce for the global flavor explorers and fans of umami flavor.
  • Honey Sriracha: A sweet heat sauce using a blend of red chili peppers, garlic, and honey. Playing into the demand for sweet heat flavor, this sauce is for you if you have a little bit of sweetness plus a little bit of heat in you.

For just $5.99*, try 10 KFC Saucy Nuggets dripping in your favorite sauce or make it a combo with Secret Recipe Fries and a drink.

"In response to requests from our customers, we're rolling out our popular Honey BBQ sauce on our nuggets. KFC guests have loved our Saucy Nuggets and we're excited to continue to introduce new flavors into the mix," said Nick Chavez, CMO KFC U.S. "Our Saucy Nuggets are made the KFC way – starting with our 100% white meat chicken nuggets, hand-breaded by our cooks with our distinctive Original Recipe of 11 herbs and spices and sauced to perfection."

KFC is also extending its popular $10 Tuesdays deal: get a bucket full of eight pieces of hot, juicy drums and thighs at KFC for just ten bucks**. While others may be closed on Sundays, KFC is not only open, but offering free delivery every Sunday this summer*** on KFC.com and the KFC app – perfect for Sunday family dinners, pool parties, family BBQs and other gatherings when you just need a fried chicken fix.
