KFC has resurrected its Tuesday-only offer of nine pieces of original recipe chicken for $9.95 (around $1.10 per piece). That's approximately 8000 kilojoules of finger-lickin' good!
Following in the footsteps of Hungry Jack's Twosdays promotion, KFC has brought back its $9.95 nine-piece chicken deal. For around the same price as a two-piece feed, KFC is cramming nine whole pieces of chicken into one greasy box. You know you want it.
KFC’s nutrition guide suggest that two pieces of chicken run to around 1785kJ, so powering through nine pieces all by yourself probably isn't wise. (That's pretty much your entire daily energy intake in one sitting.)
However, as a shared meal for three (or even four) this is brilliant value for money if you're keen for a naughty lunch. It also represents a great way to buy in bulk for frugal shoppers with plenty of room in the freezer -- $1.10 per chicken piece is pretty hard to argue with.
You could probably up the value even further by requesting breast and thigh pieces only -- this is probably against KFC policy but we doubt many cashiers give a damn one way or the other as long as you're paying.
Apparently, the deal has been a semi-regular fixture at select outlets around the country, but has now been rolled out to all stores nationwide. There has been no word on when the deal ends, but the end of the month is probably a good bet. We've contacted KFC and will update the article once we've heard back from them.
