KFC is getting saucy and taking its chicken nuggets to a new level with Saucy Nuggets, featuring five flavors that became available at the quick service restaurant chain’s outlets across the USA starting on April 1. Customers may choose from five dripping sauces including Honey Sriracha, Korean BBQ, Sticky Chicky Sweet ‘n Sour Sauce, Nashville Hot and Georgia Gold. The price is $5.99 for a 10-piece serving.

Here are descriptions of the flavors:

Honey Sriracha. A sweet heat sauce using a blend of red chili peppers, garlic and honey.

Korean BBQ. A sweet and savory umami experience featuring soy sauce, garlic, sugar and sesame.

Sticky Chicky Sweet ‘n Sour Sauce. A balanced combination of sweet and tangy flavors including pineapple, garlic, vinegar and chili.

Georgia Gold. A honey-mustard style BBQ sauce made with vinegar, honey and savory seasoning. It’s tangy with a flavorful punch.

Nashville Hot. Smoky, spicy and crispy with an even ratio of flavor and smokiness to heat that brings balance. In 2016, KFC was the first quick service restaurant to offer Nashville Hot coast to coast, with Google searches for “Nashville Hot” increasing four times after the Nashville Hot Chicken launch.

“KFC has never been so finger lickin’ good – literally,” boasted Nick Chavez, the Louisville, Kentucky-headquartered chain’s chief marketing officer in the United States. “We’ve entered the sauce chat. Our Nuggets – made from 100% white meat chicken breaded with KFC’s secret recipe of 11 herbs and spices – dripping with these sauces create an unmatched flavor experience, with something for every palate.”

Also joining KFC menus is a new  dessert: Apple Pie Poppers. Filled with warm apple pie filling and wrapped in a buttery and flaky crust, the sweet treat is offered for just $2.49 at participating locations.
