KFC, Dunkin’, and Starbucks: This Week in Food News

KFC Debuts Donut Sandwich

This week, KFC’s new fried chicken and donuts launched in participating stores nationwide. The chicken and donuts come in a basket or as a sandwich if you prefer to eat on the go. From what I have heard, this is much different than KFC’s attempt at chicken and waffles. The warm, glazed donut accents the crispy chicken tenders. KFC reports that the chicken and donut combo is available for a limited time, so get yours before it’s too late!

Matcha Lattes Now Available at Dunkin’

I will preface this by saying I’m not the biggest fan of matcha drinks. Something about the earthiness of the green tea just does not do it for me. However, matcha has become increasingly more popular at places like Starbucks and now Dunkin’ is trying to steal a portion of those profits. The new Matcha Latte at Dunkin’ is available hot, iced, or frozen. Try one today at a Dunkin’ near you.

Starbucks Nitro Cold Brew in Cans

Bad news for my caffeine addiction; Starbucks launched their new Nitro Cold Brew coffee drinks. As @candyhunting reported, these coffee drinks come in three varieties: Vanilla Sweet Cream, Black, and Dark Caramel. If these drinks are anything like the Nitro Cold Brew at Starbucks, I am worried. Nitro makes me so jittery that I can only drink small amounts, but I’m more than willing to give these a try.
