Fries are the perfect side dish for almost any sandwich, burger, or wrap. They go well with salt and pepper, ketchup, and melted cheese.
You'll be surprised if you think you've seen all about this pervasive aspect. KFC is offering a unique fry option at select locations.
KBP Brands, the largest KFC franchisee in the US, said this week that 77 KFC restaurants in Kansas
City, Omaha, St. Louis, Northwestern Arkansas, and Southeastern Oklahoma will offer Funnel Cake Fries.
These "fries" are crispy outside, soft and fluffy inside, and topped with powdered sugar, bringing back memories
of cool autumn evenings at the carnival or state fair.
The best part is that these dessert sticks are portable, unlike funnel cakes, which get messy.
After a soft launch in Kansas City this autumn, KBP says the sweet side has gone viral, prompting this expansion. If Funnel Cake Fries are a hit in the Midwest
KBP encourages customers to match Funnel Cake Fries with chicken tenders or a KFC Chicken Sandwich instead of funnel cakes, which are normally desserts.
