Finger lickin’ good – so goes the proud claim of Kentucky Fried Chicken about its core product. With several KFC menu specials to choose from, you will find that, indeed, getting finger lickin’ good meals at affordable prices is possible! But what’s the secret?
Go For the Meal Combos
Choosing among all the combos, promos, and specials can seem overwhelming. For the best value for your money, go for the KFC menu specials in the form of combos and buckets. This is especially true when you are with a large group – the amount of money you will spend on individual orders will be higher than the amount of money spent on combos and bucket meals. So what do these choices include?
Combos usually cover several of the items on the menu so that you can enjoy an entrée, a side dish, and a medium-sized drink to wash them all down.
A bucket meal contains fried or grilled chicken in several sizes, including 8-piece, 12-piece, 16-piece, and 20-piece buckets. With each bucket, you will get sides, biscuits, and drinks. If you’re not craving the classic fried chicken, you can order chicken tenders in your bucket meal, as well.
