Fried Chicken Has Been Taking Over The Internet, And Here’s Why

Sometimes there is nothing quite like a quality piece of fried chicken. As it usually identifies with the United States, more specifically the South, American restaurants and patrons alike go crazy for the crispy drumsticks. But when does this obsession become just too much?

Let’s take a trip down memory lane. As May approaches, high school students are all in a tizzy about one thing, and it’s not finals. Nope, I’m talking about prom. For the girls, the dress is the top priority — as they have been looking for one since probably February. For the boys, it’s about matching their tux to their date’s dress (or tux). But the most important accessory, by far, is the corsage.chicken+corsage+kfc+web

Now, high schoolers and Kentucky Fried Chicken fans alike can wear their favorite food to prom with the new Chicken Corsage. Selling for $20 each, KFC launched the crispy corsage this month through Nanz & Kraft Florists. Unfortunately, the select 100 Chicken Corsages sold out.

But wait, that’s not all! Dominos, known for their stuffed crust pizza among other delectable munchies, recently came out with a new menu item featuring, you guessed it, fried chicken. While many people thought this meant the well-known pizza chain was coming out with a pizza with fried chicken as the crust. Wrong.

The Huffington Post debunked these rumors by showing that, in fact, Dominos is just coming out with Specialty Chicken — fried chicken topped with signature Dominos pizza toppings, zero dough involved. Sorry to burst your bubbles, but that pizza monstrosity just isn’t happening.412198__blenderss-innovations-sorry-domino-s-pizza-crust-made-out-of-chicken-isn-t-an-innovation

But this shouldn’t shy you away from trying all of the chicken concoctions Dominos has to offer, featuring flavors such as Crispy Bacon & Tomato, Spicy Jalapeno-Pineapple, Classic Hot Buffalo and Sweet BBQ Bacon. Sounds like a chicken party in your mouth to me! The Specialty Chicken is a part of the $5.99 mix-and-match menu at Dominos.

Keep calm and chicken on, my friends.
