Unlock the Colonel's hidden snacks.

Hold onto your buckets folks, we've got something juicy to share: KFC has a secret menu. That's right, the Colonel has been keeping a stash of "unreleased treats" hidden away, just waiting to tantalise your taste buds.

You won't find these items on the standard menu and you can't order them over the counter, but don't worry, we have step-by-step instructions on how to unlock this treasure trove of Kentucky fried deliciousness.

A Facebook user sent fast-food fans into a frenzy by revealing how to access the menu through the KFC mobile app. To uncover the hidden items, the woman explained, simply scroll down to refresh and hold the screen until the Secret Menu option appears.

The happy customer shared photos of the Kentucky Snack Pack she ordered from the secret menu, which included fries loaded with popcorn chicken, and cost her only $5.95 despite its "huuuuge" size.


Others shared their own experiences with the Kentucky Snack Pack, with some suggesting the portion sizes are unpredictable. "I got it tonight and was blown away by the size of it for $5.95," one customer wrote. "I've ordered this twice and have always had leftovers," responded another.

"Sometimes it's really full and amazing value, other times it's a glorified Go Bucket and presents little value," a disappointed KFC fan warned. "I must've just been unlucky or whoever made mine was in a horrible mood," commented someone else.
