But it won’t be around forever.

Remember when KFC announced it was testing a Chicken & Donuts Sandwich in select cities? 

Well, call your doctor and slip on your stretchy pants—because the colonel is taking this wonderfully horrible idea nationwide. 

The limited-time offering is exactly what it sounds like: fried chicken sandwiched between two glazed doughnuts. 

"Chicken & Donuts is the newest fried chicken trend we're bringing to all of America," said Andrea Zahumensky, chief marketing officer, KFC U.S, in a press release. "But not just any donut would do. Only a donut that's glazed-to-order and served piping hot every single time can stand next to our hand-breaded fried chicken. It's a finger lickin' good dish filled with glaze and glory."

It’s not clear what “glazed-to-order” means, exactly, but we’re into it. 

Of course, KFC is pulling out all the stops to celebrate the national debut. The fast food chain is opening a pop-up shop in Los Angeles called “The Colonel’s (Chicken &) Donuts Shop” on February 22. 

The shop, which will open for one day only, will serve exclusively Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts. 

If you happen to be in L.A., you can RSVP right here (although walk-ups are welcome). The first 50 customers in line will get free KFC Extra Crispy chicken tenders and six doughnuts.

For everyone else in the country, the sandwich will be available at KFC restaurants from February 24 until March 16.

Get ‘em while you can!
