TORONTO, July 6, 2022 /CNW/ – An unlikely pairing, fried and sparkling chicken, has won over the taste buds of foodies and wine lovers. From the New York food scene to celebrities like Dave Grohl, this delicious pairing is tasty and refreshing, but so many people have yet to experience this deliciousness. According to a recent survey by KFC Canada, 41 percent of Canadian adults are interested in trying fried chicken and bubbles. To celebrate National Fried Chicken Day, KFC is making it even easier – with Buckets & Bubbly, an epically delicious pairing.
