As far as crisp flavours go, this has to be up there with some of the best we’ve ever come across. Saying that, those scampi and lemon Nik Naks are da bomb. Don’t @ me…

Anyway, back to the matter at hand… Walkers has just announced that it has joined forces with KFC to launch not one, but TWO new Kentucky Fried Chicken flavours.

If Walkers Max are your crisps of choice, you now choose between KFC’s signature Original Recipe, or if you’re up for spicing things up, there’s the KFC Zinger flavour too.

Wallop!

Walkers’ partnership with its Max ridged crisps and KFC comes after years of chatter on Twitter about bringing the two food icons together to create the ultimate combo of crunch and flavour, with one guy mentioning the idea as far back as 2009!

And if that wasn’t exciting enough, every bag of the new Walkers Max KFC crisps also doubles up as a 2-for-1 voucher, which gives you 50% off when they buy two of KFC’s ‘Meals for One’ range. The offer can be redeemed via drive thrus or takeaway when a packet of the KFC x Walkers crisps is shown to a KFC team member. And don’t worry, the deal isn’t going anywhere anytime soon and meals can be redeemed up until 31st July 2021!

Katherine Cook, Senior Brand Manager at Walkers commented: “There are some things in life that just make perfect sense, and KFC-flavoured Walkers MAX crisps are one of them! With the irresistible, deep-ridged crunch of Walkers MAX combined with the flavour of KFC’s much-loved recipes, our new crisps make for the ultimate, satisfying snack when you’re hungry!”

Hazell White, Senior Brand Manager at KFC commented: “We’re so excited that two iconic brands are finally colliding and we can bring our signature Kentucky Fried Chicken and Zinger flavours to Walkers MAX crisps! Yes these crisps are delicious, but we do know that nothing beats the real thing so we’ve added in a 2-for-1 deal so fans nationwide can get a taste of our epic Meals for One range.”

Launching across stores nationwide, Walkers Max KFC flavour crisps will be available in a variety of sizes, including 50g grab bag size for 85p and larger 140g sharing bags which will set you back £1.99.
