KFC serves up new Cheetos Popcorn Nuggets alongside their most popular, limited time sandwich, the Cheetos Sandwich. The new menu item clocks in at 410 calories and features 100 percent crispy, all-white meat chicken pieces of chicken covered in the chain’s new Special Cheetos Sauce.
Just like the Sandwich, this item combines KFC’s finger lickin’ good chicken with the finger lickin’ cheesiness of Cheetos. However, one serving of Cheetos Popcorn Nuggets contains 29 grams of fat and 1140 milligrams of sodium.
So if you down 2 servings of Cheetos Nuggets, for example, you’ll have consumed over 50 grams of fat and nearly 2.5 grams of sodium in a single sitting, which is more than the recommended daily allowance for a person, according to the American Heart Association.
Apart from diced white chicken breast and enriched wheat flour, this item contains several other ingredients, such as corn syrup solids and high fructose corn syrup, which if consumed in excess, can lead to obesity and heart disease.
