KFC And Wendy’s Go Head-to-Head with Saucy Nuggets

by Nick

The fast food world is heating up with a battle of the saucy nuggets! On June 10th, both KFC and Wendy’s launched their own versions of saucy chicken nuggets, giving fans a delicious dilemma.

KFC, known for its “finger-lickin’ good” chicken, reintroduced its Saucy Nuggets with a new lineup of flavors. Wendy’s, famous for its square burgers, countered with their own “Saucy Nuggs” featuring seven different dipping sauces.


While KFC originally launched its Saucy Nuggets in March, Wendy’s announced their version on June 3rd and made them available for ordering on the same day as KFC’s new lineup.


Wendy’s offers a choice of crispy or spicy nuggets, with sauces like Honey BBQ, Garlic Parm, Buffalo, and Spicy Ghost Pepper. Customers can also add a side of blue cheese or ranch dressing.


KFC, on the other hand, selected its current Saucy Nuggets flavors based on customer feedback. The chain kept two popular choices, Korean BBQ and Honey Sriracha, and added a Honey BBQ option.


For $5.99, KFC offers a 10-piece Saucy Nuggets order. Customers can also get a combo with fries and a drink.

KFC also has a variety of other deals this summer, including a $10 Tuesday deal with an eight-piece bucket of drums and thighs, free delivery every Sunday, and a $4.99 meal that includes two pieces of chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, and a biscuit. They also have a $20 Family Meal with six pieces of chicken, four sides, and four biscuits.

KFC’s value-driven offers join similar deals announced by other fast-food chains like McDonald’s, Burger King, Popeyes, and Buffalo Wild Wings. This trend suggests that restaurants are responding to customer concerns about rising prices by offering more affordable options. Even casual dining chains like Applebee’s and Denny’s are getting in on the action.
