Kentucky Fried Chicken is giving moms a sweet and sexy treat this Mother’s Day – if a shirtless Colonel Sanders is their thing. The chicken chain has enlisted the help of the Chippendales dancers to pair KFC with Cinnabon for a new limited-time menu item.


Shirtless Colonel Sanders dances for moms

The KFC Chickendales – yes, that’s the decidedly unsexy name of the troupe of male dancers – are dancing up a frenzy for moms with a customized social media message and a push for chicken and biscuits. Starting April 29 and available through June 30, guests will receive four free Cinnabon Dessert Biscuits with the purchase of any KFC 10-piece meal or larger. The KFC Cinnabon Dessert Biscuits – flaky biscuits topped with Cinnabon’s cinnamon brown sugar glaze and signature cream cheese – are also available on their own.

While mom is enjoying her fast food treat, she can also view a personalized Chickendales Mother’s Day video. Those who go to the Chickendales website can type in mom’s name and where she lives so the shirtless Colonel and his cohorts can dance a customized dance for her, which can be shared on social channels.

“Our new Cinnabon Dessert Biscuits were created just in time for Mother’s Day to give mom a delectable sweet treat that’s uniquely KFC,” said Andrea Zahumensky, chief marketing officer, KFC US “To top it off, wish mom a happy Mother’s Day the KFC way by sending her a video of a shirt-ripping, finger-lickin’ performance cooked up by a troupe of hunky KFC Chickendales.”
