KFC’s Crispy Colonel Sandwich is one of the newer items on the menu, and it tastes great. But besides beings delicious, this option is much healthier than KFC’s new Chicken and Waffles sandwich, which is an absolute calorie- and carb-bomb.

The sandwich has 460 calories and 25 grams of fat, so it’s a good option for any of the three main meals. However, it’s only available on the lunch and dinner menus, so you can only order it at noon or at 6:00 p.m. when they switch over to the dinner menu.

You can reduce the number of calories in your sandwich by eliminating or reducing the amount of mayo you put on it. You can also get it without the bun to reduce not only calories but also the amount of carbs this thing has. We take a deeper dive into these options below.

If you don’t care about the calories and you want to make the experience even more satisfying, then you can add an extra chicken patty to make it a double.
