Bowled over with taste, KFC Canada brings highly anticipated Chicken Bowls to Canadians

    KFC combines favourite menu items in a tasty, home-style meal-in-a-bowl

    TORONTO, Nov. 19 /CNW/ - As the chilly winter weather approaches,
Canadians will be layering more than just long underwear under their clothing
to stay warm. KFC Canada is also adding layers this season to help customers
warm-up with the launch of Chicken Bowls - a single serving meal-in-a-bowl
with layers of great KFC tastes. Chicken Bowls are available at participating
KFC Canada locations from November 19 to December 31.
    "At KFC Canada, we listen to our customers' suggestions so that we can
continue to provide them with quality meals and a unique dining experience,"
said Jeff O'Neill, president of KFC Canada. "Developing new and innovative
products is always top of mind, and with the new Chicken Bowls, we can offer
our customers finger-licking goodness in a single serving bowl that can be
eaten anywhere."
    Chicken Bowls layer hearty, classic tastes - including mashed potatoes,
sweet corn and bite-sized crispy chicken, drizzled with signature home-style
gravy and topped with a yummy blend of cheddar, mozzarella and jack cheese -
in a convenient, delicious, ready-to-eat meal. Eaten layer-by-layer or mixed
together, Chicken Bowls are the ideal comfort food to fill-up on during the
cooler season.
    "For years, KFC Canada has always made mealtime easy, affordable and
satisfying. Chicken Bowls are a quick, easy and tasty way to enjoy the
comforts of home-cooking in a bowl. Made with quality ingredients, Chicken
Bowls are reminiscent of the home-style food our moms used to make," said
    To celebrate the arrival of Chicken Bowls in Canada, KFC Canada will be
giving away ten KFC Chicken Bowls each day from November 19, 2007 -
December 31, 2007, through an online contest. Contestants can visit
to try and build a virtual KFC Chicken Bowl layer by layer in the correct
order. KFC Canada will also award a grand prize of a home entertainment system
to one lucky contestant.
