KFC Japan Gives You Donut Balls


You'll get Donut Balls from eating at KFC Japan but fear not, the condition is harmless unless you're a tad hypoglycemic. As part of the company's “KFC × RONALDO” campaign with soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, three-piece orders of Donut Balls are served hot along with a packet of gooey Honey Maple dipping sauce.




The promotional campaign kicks off on April 24th, 2014 at KFC outlets across Japan. The three-piece sets of Donut Balls, which appear to be similar to Tim Hortons' Timbits or so-called “donut holes” familiar to North Americans, can be purchased separately for 150 yen (about $1.50) tax included.




Hungrier types might want to splurge for one of four different “Ronaldo Boxes” containing an assortment of everyday KFC Japan menu items such as Original Recipe chicken (one piece), Japanese style chicken cutlet sandwich, fried fish sandwich, chicken Twister with Pepper Mayo or Teriyaki sauce, small french fries, and a medium drink in a special Ronaldo cup.




Enjoy your main course while lovingly ogling your hot Donut Balls... not that there's anything wrong with that. Let the suspense build; then open the complementary packet of Honey Maple sauce and apply directly to the balls. Who thought fast food could be so much fun?




Last but not least, KFC Japan is encouraging purchasers to visit a special website where they can enter a lottery for cool Ronaldo merchandise such as unique posters and aluminum sports bottles. The lottery is only in effect from April 24th through May 28th so don't get your balls in an uproar, get 'em to KFC pronto! (via Gigazine and Entabe)
