This year, KFC also released a new burger for Christmas – the Gravy Burger Box Meal.

The burger comes with a hash brown gravy boat inside and features an Original Recipe chicken fillet topped with a slice of cheese.

The hash brown is placed in the burger so that when the iconic KFC’s gravy is poured onto the burger, it soaks it up.

Announcing the launch, the fast food chain said: “We see you. Yeah you. The one who queues eagerly to get a taste of KFC’s gravy. The one ordering that extra pot to liberally dunk, dip or drizzle.

“The gravy addict who stocks up the fridge way ahead of Christmas Day.

“Every year you go to great lengths to get your KFC gravy fix, so this Christmas we’ve got a tree-mendous (sorry!) treat for you.”(sic)
