KFC Is Selling A Giant 80-Piece Popcorn Chicken Bucket And I'll Probably Still Eat It All In One Sitting

What is it, exactly, about popcorn chicken that makes it so irresistible? Could it be the ease of consumption, the delectable deep fried-ness of it, or the fact that 'popcorn' is baked right into the name making it seem almost guilt-free? Add to that its inherent shareability, and it's no wonder it's such a beloved treat.

Not surprisingly, KFC is on to its popularity and is responding with a massive 80-piece popcorn chicken bucket in time for holiday binge eating.

It's being tested in the UK

The fried chicken behemoth is rolling out this new supersized treat at 10 restaurants in Glasgow, according to a tweet from KFC UK & Ireland's official account.

The response has been overwhelming

KFC fans across the UK are thrilled at the announcement and especially can't get over the fact that they can have 80 piece of popcorn chicken for just £5.99 ($7.68). Unfortunately, many are chomping at the bit for it to extend beyond the test locations in Glasgow.

How long will it take to count out 80 pieces?

The deal was announced on the Hot UK Deals website and immediately created a frenzy. Although some wondered how long it would actually take someone to count out 80 pieces of popcorn chicken without them getting cold.

We'll have to see if it makes its way across the pond

Enjoy your obscenely large bucket of popcorn chicken, UK brethren. We'll just be over here salivating with envy.
