KFC announces, in a new commercial, that “The Most Delicious Union is Back”.
The 15-second spot, which is not actually new, features the Colonel played by actor Craig Fleming, turning around from a bunch of red roses and seeing the giant bottle of Mrs Butterworth syrup, shaped like a woman. As Jennifer Rush’s iconic song “The Power Of Love” is playing in the background, he gives a few quick glances around and then comes closer to his date, whom he tries to kiss. However, the commercial ends before viewers could actually see the kiss, with the voiceover announcing that “the most delicious union of all time is back” for a limited time only.
The limited-time pairing KFC Chicken & Waffles was sold from November 12, 2018 through December 31, 2018 and promoted by KFC in spots featuring The Colonel and the bottle of Mrs Butterworth syrup.
The fast-food restaurant chain offers meals including fried chicken or tenders, waffles and a side of Mrs.
Butterworth’s syrup at prices that start at $5.49. Sandwich lovers will also have the chance to grab a $5.99 sandwich with two waffles in place of the bread. According to KFC, its new waffles are made with a yeast-raised dough instead of batter and include pearl sugar imported from Belgium, which makes them sweeter and doughier than American-style waffles.
