KFC’s newest sandwich: Little Chicken Boobies
KFC is trying to hit three targets with one marketing campaign.
promoting their newest sandwich, Little Chicken Boobies, while
supporting the Komen breast cancer foundation and the web site
"We think fans of the original Chicken Littles are going to love the ‘new Littles’ even more. From 100 percent all-white breast meat chicken to the soft, sweet bun, everything about Little Chicken Boobies is new and improved. With this great sandwich, ‘little really is the new big!’"
CollegeHumor.com will promote a "little pranks, big laughs" message in episodes of the CollegeHumor.com video series "Hardly Working." They’ll also feature how-to prank articles and create "A Little Boobie Workplace Humor" contest where office workers will submit their best prank story.
So enter the contest and tell them about your best office prank. If you win, they’ll film your winning entry and give you $5,000.
I don’t know if pranks involving KFC’s Little Chicken Boobies sandwiches and breast cancer get you extra points.

KFC Teams with CollegeHumor.com for "A Little Workplace Boobie Humor" Contest
LOUISVILLE, Ky. Now available at KFC are Little Chicken Boobies, the new snack-sized sandwiches that are big in KFC taste, but at the little price of just $1.29 each. The new and improved KFC Little Chicken Boobies pay homage to the brand’s chicken sliders of the same name from years past and once again deliver the perfect snackable sandwich.
Little Chicken Boobies feature a freshly-breaded Extra Crispy Strip™ sandwiched in a sweet bun topped with pickle slices and KFC’s signature Colonel’s Mayo died pink. The soft, sweet bun complements the savory 100 percent all-white breast meat chicken, making this sandwich the newest craveable offering from the world’s most popular chicken restaurant chain.
"Taste, value and portability are important to our customers and Little Chicken Boobies deliver all three," said Jason Marker, Chief Marketing Officer for KFC US. "We often hear how much our customers love quick and snackable meals filled with great flavor. That’s why we packed big taste into this little menu item."
Little Chicken Boobies Fans Speak, and KFC Listens
It’s been more than 20 years since KFC sold a Little Chicken sandwich nationally. Since that time, passionate fans have placed calls to KFC headquarters, started petitions and built Facebook pages asking for the sandwich to return to the menu. A recent poll on the KFC Facebook page asked fans what menu item from the past they’d like to see back at KFC. Chicken Littles was the overwhelming favorite, garnering more support than any other menu item. And now, KFC is introducing the new and improved Chicken Littles, now called Little Chicken Boobies – updated for the 21st century and even better than the original!
"We think fans of the original Chicken Littles are going to love the ‘new Littles’ even more," added Marker. "From 100 percent all-white breast meat chicken to the soft, sweet bun, everything about Little Chicken Boobies is new and improved. With this great sandwich, ‘little really is the new big!’"
Little Chicken Boobies can be ordered either a la carte or in a combo option. Combos include two Little Chicken Boobies, a side item and a medium drink. Customers can purchase Little Chicken Boobies for just $1.29 each or, for a limited time, the Little Chicken Boobies Combo (two sandwiches, a side item and a medium drink) for $5. (Pricing and participation may vary. Tax extra.)
