KFC first tested the sugary sandwich in select markets back in September 2019, and the viral menu item caused quite a stir on social media.

Now, everyone can get a taste.

“Chicken & Donuts is the newest fried chicken trend we’re bringing to all of America,” Andrea Zahumensky, the chief marketing officer at KFC US, said in a press release.

Maybe KFC wants to give the Popeyes’ viral chicken sandwich a little competition.

Fans who finally want to try the fried chicken and dount sandwich can order the new item in two forms: sandwich and basket. The sandwich includes a fillet of boneless fried chicken sandwich between two glazed doughnuts. The basket version is a deconstructed version of the sandwich with boneless or bone-in chicken and one or two doughnuts.

Prices for the item range from $5.49 to $7.99. The sandwich will be available through March 16 or while supplies last, according to Business Insider.
