KFC - yes, that KFC, the artist formerly known as Kentucky Fried Chicken - is testing Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts - a new chicken sandwich and chicken combo in three very exclusive markets and the Richmond area is one.

Sort of.

KFC this week announced the new menu item (doughnuts), which launched Monday, Sept. 16 in Norfolk, Richmond and Pittsburgh - and is only available for a limited time ("through this test market, KFC is evaluating consumer appetite for bringing this growing food trend to its customers on a national scale," according to a news release), but the Richmond locations are actually all outside of Richmond.

According to KFC, the Kentucky Fried Chicken & Donuts special - (available as a basket meal, chicken on the bone or chicken tenders, with one doughnut, $5.49; a big basket meal with two donuts, $7.49; chicken sandwich with two doughnuts as buns, $5.99; or a sandwich combo, $7.99; or just add a doughnut to anything for $1) - is only available in the Richmond area in Chester, Chesterfield, Powhatan, Hopewell, Petersburg and Colonial Heights.

Here are the exact locations:
