KFC gears up for the holiday season with the launch of a new holiday bucket design along with a new matching holiday merch collection starting on November 2, 2023.
Since the 1960s, KFC has been serving up extra joy at participating restaurants around the world by creating unique, holiday-themed buckets to celebrate the merry season.
The fried chicken chain’s new, 2023 limited-edition “Secret Recipe of Joy” holiday bucket are meant to remind fans that KFC has been serving joy with its iconic fried chicken for over 70 years.
Many of the brand’s bucket meals will come in the special holiday bucket for a limited time, starting November 2023.
Additionally, KFC’s new meal, the $20 Fill Up Box, will also come in a special holiday box that features the chain’s new “Secret Recipe of Joy” design. The $20 Fill Up Box includes 12 Kentucky Fried Chicken Nuggets, four bone-in chicken pieces, a side of Secret Recipe Fries, four buttery biscuits and your choice of four dipping sauces.
As mentioned above, KFC is also releasing a new holiday merch collection inspired by the “Secret Recipe of Joy” holiday bucket. With sizing ranging from S to XXXL and multiple styles to choose from, the KFC Holiday Collection includes a variety of items that are perfect for gifting, such as sweaters, hoodies, hats, bags and more, as well as a special KFC gravy-inspired shirt specially designed for Friendsgiving gatherings. You can shop the new KFC Holiday Collection and a selection of winter items at KFCShop.com starting today.
Two new menu items will also be arriving on November 12, 2023: a new Mac & Cheese Wrap joins the brand’s returning Kentucky Fried Chicken Wraps lineup, and the Colonel’s Homestyle Brownie, which is a family-size fudgy brownie that can be added to any bucket meal, or the $20 Fill Up Box, for a suggested price of $5.
In addition to shareable bucket meals and brownies, KFC also offers a wide range of homestyle sides for all your holiday celebration needs, including mashed potatoes and gravy, mac & cheese, biscuits and more.
