The Gravy Burger from KFC

The Gravy Burger from KFC

All KFC locations

A big hit from last year is back as KFC has realised that people really like extra gravy at Christmas. The burger is a chicken fillet, a slice of melted cheese and a "Hash Brown Gravy Boat" - which is a hash brown with a dip in the centre to act as a pool for the "gravynnaise". You can order lots of gravy with any meal during Christmas and they're also launching a "grib" - aka a gravy bib. But good luck getting your hands on one of those, they'll be very popular indeed...

When: Until 31 December 2021
