Walkers has teamed up with KFC to create two new fried chicken-centric flavours of crisp.

Available from Wednesday, 13 January, the two new flavours include Walkers MAX Kentucky Fried Chicken flavour, featuring KFC’s signature Original Recipe herbs and spices.

The second new additions will be the Walkers MAX Double Crunch Zinger flavour - which is inspired by the fast food giant’s popular spicy chicken burger.

Walkers adds that the crisps will be ‘ridged for extra crunch’.

The crisps will be released in a smaller, snack size 50g bag, retailing for 85p each as well as a larger 140g sharing bag which will retail for £1.99 each.

Each bag of the new crisps will also offer consumers a two-for-one offer at KFC when they buy two of the ‘Meals for One’ range, which can be redeemed at drive through or takeaway while KFC restaurants remain closed.

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.
