KFC Finally Brings Iconic Zinger Sandwich To The United States

Kentucky Fried Chicken's iconic international sandwich is finally coming to the United States.

The fried chicken chain just announced that the spicy chicken sandwich will finally touch US soils after years of exclusively being an international offering from KFC and Yum Brands.

Made of 100 percent chicken breast filet, the meat is double hand-breaded and fried until golden brown. It's then served with lettuce and mayo on a toasted sesame seed bun.


Released in Trinidad and Tobago in 1984, the fried chicken sandwich has been available in more than 120 countries since its debut. International sellers include the UK, India, and Australia. The sandwich is essentially KFC's answer to the Big Mac or Whopper.

It's about damn time we get to try it.

The Zinger will be available at participating US restaurants beginning April 24 as both an individual sandwich and a $5 Fill Up Combo Meal.
