The KFC Chocolate box containing four specially crafted sweets for Mother’s Day

KFC release Finger Lickin’ Good chocolates for Mother’s Day

Are you sweet or savoury? Chocolate or fried chicken? Thanks to KFC you don’t have to choose, with a twist on an old favourite to help their fans share the love with the women who love them most.

KFC have collaborated with Kako Chocolate to craft artisanal chocolates featuring their famous seasonings, especially for Mother’s Day. The limited-edition treats are inspired by two sophisticated food trends, chilli chocolate and the combination of salty and sweet, perfect for mum to savour while you finish your bucket.

Each chocolate box contains four of the specially crafted sweets, with two creamy milk chocolate truffles infused with KFC’s famous Original Recipe seasoning, and two delicious dark chocolates enriched with fan favourite Hot & Spicy marinade. The Original chocolate is topped with 23 carat gold leaf to add a touch of luxury, while the Hot & Spicy treats feature KFC’s signature red and white colouring in their design.

The unique chocolates are a new addition to KFC’s aptly named range of #fingerlickingoods, including the ever-popular KFC candle and KFC bouquet.

“We’re excited to be offering a way for KFC fans to share something they love with the special mum in their life this Mother’s Day,” says Marketing Director for KFC NZ, Clark Wilson. “These chocolates are very unique and a bit fun, the perfect way to end a meal at KFC or at home.”

Stu Jordan from collaborator Kako Chocolate says this is the strangest flavour request they have ever had.

“KFC have a wonderful blend of herbs and spices, so we had a great starting point.

“To create the Original flavour we went with a buttery, nutty flavour base to blend the 11 herbs and spices with milk chocolate. Then we added some cocoa nib for crunch, to echo the texture of fried chicken,” says Stu Jordan.

As for the Hot & Spicy chocolates, Stu says they’re not for the faint of heart: “It’s definitely hot – and spicy! We used a dark chocolate base to add a sweet contrast to the heat from the KFC spicy marinade.”

Only fifty boxes of the unique creations are available. Thirty are going out to well-known KFC Fans, while twenty will be given away on KFC’s Facebook page.
