KFC Australia has unveiled another off-menu item just weeks after foodies discovered a little-known feature hidden in the fast food chain’s app.
The restaurant added the never-before-seen meal called ‘The Kentucky Snack Pack’, retailed at $4.95, to the ‘Secret Menu’, available in-stores from Tuesday, April 16.
The new meal includes the famous golden fries, topped with its iconic Popcorn Chicken and drizzled with fiery supercharged sauce to give you a spicy kick.
To make the purchase you need to download the app, select your nearest store, tap ‘order’ and when the menu appears, drag the screen down.
As cartoon Colonel Sanders appears, hold the screen for 11 seconds until the ‘Secret Menu’ pops up.

How to access the KFC ‘secret menu’
1. Download the KFC App
2. Navigate to the Order screen with the food categories (you will need to select a store first)
3. Scroll down until the Colonel appears
4. Hold for 11 seconds until the Secret Menu pops up
‘It didn’t take long for fans to discover our Secret Menu, and we’re excited to give the country a sneak peek of the next item, the Kentucky Snack Pack,’ KFC Australia’s chief marketing officer Kristi Woolrych said.
‘Like The Colonel, we want to keep the rest of the items a secret, so you’ll need to keep your eyes peeled with new items are added every month so stay tuned.’
The products on the Secret Menu were designed by the chain’s team members as part of an internal competition.
‘After all, no one knows KFC better than our people! The best ideas were chosen to become part of KFC’s Secret Menu to be rolled out over the next year on the KFC app,’ the chain said.
The product on the menu will change every month – so dedicated diners are encouraged to keep checking back on the app.
‘Discover unreleased treats that have never seen the light of day – until now. I update the menu regularly so keep checking back,’ the menu description reads.
What is on the KFC secret menu?
THE BEESE CHURGER
This is a regular burger with a Zinger fillet, cheese and mayo. In this case, the buns are flipped upside down. ‘Honestly, we’re not sure how, but it really works, trust us,’ KFC said.
THE ZINGER CHIPSTER
This is a ‘next level’ Twister with a Zinger fillet, fresh lettuce, cheese and sauce all wrapped in a tortilla and stuffed with golden chips.
THE SLIDA BURGER
This is KFC’s take on a ‘low carb’ burger. It is simply a Zinger fillet, smoky bacon, fresh lettuce, cheese and sauce all packed between two flatbread buns.
THE KENTUCKY SNACK PACK
This is the newest item to be added to the Secret Menu. The snack pack includes golden chippies, topped with Popcorn Chicken and drizzled with fiery supercharged sauce
A KFC spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia last month: ‘As you know, The Colonel is famous for his secrets including his 11 herbs and spices, but yes we can confirm there’s a secret menu within the KFC app.
‘It’s a secret menu for a reason, so we encourage Aussies to download the KFC app and get scouring. There’s a bunch of clues hidden in the website, app and on Facebook which will help uncover these never seen before KFC products.
‘The Colonel has more to reveal in the coming weeks, so keep your eyes peeled.’
Among the selection of ‘secret burgers’ is the ‘Beese Churger’, which is a regular Zinger burger but the buns are upside down.
‘Step 1 – Take a regular burger with a juicy Zinger fillet, cheese and mayo. Step 2 – Put that thing down, flip it and reverse it. Why? ‘Cos we take our burgers flippin’ very seriously. Honestly, we’re not sure how, but it really works, trust us,’ KFC said.

The ‘never-before-seen’ menu offers three different burgers with a delicious twist – Beese Churger, Zinger Chipster and Slida Burger – all valued at $6.95 each
The next meal on the menu is the ‘Zinger Chipster’ after KFC recreated the iconic wrap by adding golden chips into the centre.
‘We’ve taken Twister to the next level. Get a load of this – a juicy Zinger fillet, fresh lettuce, cheese, golden chips all drizzled with supercharged sauce and wrapped up in a warm tortilla,’ the description reads.
Finally if you’re looking for a low-carb meal, then the Slida Burger is the perfect choice for you.
‘Apparently low-carb burgers are a thing now so here’s our take if you’re all about that life,’ KFC said.
‘You’ll get a juicy Zinger fillet, smokey bacon, fresh lettuce, cheese and supercharged sauce all packed between two flatbread buns. Are we doin’ it right?’
The KFC Secret Menu will be available at all participating stores Australia-wide for the remainder of 2019.
