KFC unleashes THE SLAB just in time for footy finals!

We all know that sharing is caring and it seems that sentiment is not lost on the folks over at KFC.

In that spirit, the global fried chicken purveyor has just unleashed one of its mightiest creations yet – and one you’re probably going to have to enjoy in co-op mode.

It’s called The Slab and while we’re pretty sure there is no inspiration taken from the classic Hunters and Collectors track, (although the line I was looking to see some dreams drip from your fingers seems apt here) this bad boy is just as epic!

This literal slab of sometimes food is made from a generous serving of six…yes SIX soft dinner rolls filled to bursting with juicy morsels of Popcorn Chicken, a river of oozing tasty cheese and BBQ sauce.

This chook beast was trialled in Ballarat in 2019 and proved so popular that it was decided to roll it out across the country.

And what perfect timing with footy finals season upon us. You can celebrate feats of dedicated athleticism on the pitch as you stuff your face with this cheesy creation or invite some mates around and tuck in over a couple of brews.

“We’re thrilled to announce The Slab is now available on KFC menus across the country,” KFC CMO Kristy Woolrych said.

We listened to our fans, and it’s now available across all our restaurants for everyone to tuck into and enjoy! Made with our iconic popcorn chicken and soft bread rolls, we’ve no doubt our fans will go crazy for this new creation.”

This “crazy-inducing” creation won’t be around forever, though as you’ll only have until Monday 2 November to pick one up!
