Some combinations just work. Mayonnaise and ketchup aka burger sauce. Orange and chocolate. And white chocolate and hazelnut.

A flavour combination we’ve never tried before, but are wildly excited about is gravy and mayonnaise. Could it really work? Well, it looks like KFC is here to help us find out.

KFC has sneakily registered the term ‘gravynnaise’ thinking we wouldn’t notice. But guess what guys… you can’t keep something as huge as gravynnaise from us. Nice try.

We know this because i newspaper has published an application for the product, which has been listed with the UK's Intellectual Property Office by the American company.

And, as a rule, if you register a trademark then don’t do anything about it, you could face a whole host of legal issues. So we’re pretty sure gravy flavoured mayonnaise is coming to KFC in the not-so-distant future.

Although, KFC is keeping shtum about gravynnaise, KFC’s chief gravy officer did tell The Sun: “We’re always on the lookout for new ways to jazz up our gravy options, so watch this space… who knows what we have up our sleeve!”

If you can’t wait around all day for gravynnaise, why not get stuck into something festive from KFC instead?

The KFC seasonal menu features the KFC Festive Burger, Festive Fries and a new Mint Choc Krushem Soft Serve Ice Cream.

Let’s talk about the burger first, shall we? It combines a classic Original Recipe chicken fillet with a crispy hash brown, sage and onion stuffing mayo, cranberry sauce and a layer of cheese. This costs £4.59 by itself, or you can get a Festive Burger Box Meal for £6.89, which means you get beans, a chicken drumstick, a drink and fries, which could be flavoured with holiday spirit if that’s your jam. KFC’s Festive Fries have been sprinkled with pepper, toasted onions, garlic and herbs.

But seriously, gravynnaise… we’re going to need you to make an appearance soon, otherwise we’ll be forced to try and make a gravy-mayonnaise hybrid ourselves. I think we all know how that will go down. #Curdled.
