Stocks in this article: YUM

The family that plays together…stays together. So say the experts, therefore America’s favorite fried chicken chain is feeding the trend with the introduction of the KFC Game Night Bucket. The family meal includes 12 of KFC’s famous Extra Crispy™ Tenders, four dipping sauces, four biscuits, two large side items and a free I SPY game, right on the bucket. (For larger families, the Game Night Bucket is also available with 20 Extra Crispy Tenders.)

In addition to bringing the family together around a delicious bucket of chicken, there may be other benefits to playing games with your family. Sara Meghan Walter, Ph.D., assistant professor of counselor education at Stetson University, says that playing games helps build self-confidence, promotes essential skills, encourages academic development, and offers lasting memories. “Children and adults feel happier and healthier when they feel like they’re connected to a group,” Walter says. “When you’re playing a game that requires input from everybody, it increases family cohesion.” *

“Colonel Sanders started serving home-cooked meals to travelers at his family’s dining room table in his service station in 1930, and he quickly developed a reputation for ‘Sunday dinner served seven days a week,’” said Kevin Hochman, Chief Marketing Officer for KFC U.S. “At KFC, we’ve always prided ourselves on bringing families together over dinner, and we think the Colonel would be proud of the way the Game Night Bucket does that in a fun way.”

The beloved I SPY franchise has been engaging, educating and entertaining children and families around the world since the first I SPY book was published in 1991. KFC’s Game Night Bucket includes a free I SPY game and bonus I SPY posters to allow families to enjoy time together over dinner.
