In a statement to Daily Mail Australia, Kristi Woolrych, chief marketing officer at KFC Australia, said: ‘We’ve come to learn that it never takes long for our fans to discover our secrets. 

‘So, it’s no surprise they’ve already uncovered our latest creation, the Donut Go Bucket, on the Secret Menu. 

‘We know our fans love our classic Go Buckets, but this time the Colonel has had some fun by switching out the Popcorn Chicken with our limited edition Kentucky Fried Donuts. Along with our crispy Chips, this might well be the perfect combo.’

The donuts have also popped up on the regular menu recently – and come in two sized, regular, for $4.95, or large, for $7.95. 

They also feature in two meals.

The ‘Fill Up Ft. Kentucky Fried Donuts’ which is available until 4pm and includes a snack box of donuts, a wicked wing, original tender, potato and gravy and chips for $4.95.

They are also available in the new ‘complete treat’ meal – which includes a burger, three wicked wings, potato and gravy, chips, can of drink and donuts for $12.95.

The secret menu has a huge following – with fans excitedly sharing each new item as they see it pop up on the app.

The last item to get taste buds tingling featured a crispy hash brown sandwiched between two fried chicken fillets.

The last item to get taste buds tingling featured a crispy hash brown sandwiched between two fried chicken fillets. 

The epic $7.95 Zinger Tower Double’s burger buns were replaced with two thick slabs of fried chicken – complete with a tangy tomato sauce, mayonnaise, a hash brown and cheese.

But the special menu item didn’t last long and disappeared from stores on March 22. 

‘It won’t be hanging around for long, so keep a close eye on our secret menu as you never know when something strangely delicious might drop next,’ customers were warned at the time.
