KFC has made a huge change to its fries after calls to bring back its old recipe.
The fast food chain has revamped the recipe of its chips with new seasoning and fans will be itching to give them a go.
KFC says its new "Signature fries" will up the chain's chip game and are "finally finger lickin' good".
The new-style chips are fully replacing the old and will be available for individual purchase and as part of a meal from today.
A regular portion costs £1.79 and a large portion is £2.49.
It's not the first time KFC has launched new fries after customer outcry, but after the last switch-up many felt they still didn't hit the spot.

In 2018 the chain ditched its former skinny chips and replaced them with a new skin-on style.
But fans were not impressed and said they were "worse than before" with many calling for the old ones to come back.
Despite calls for the former skinny chips to return, these new recipe fries are still the skin-on style but coated in KFC's iconic combination of herbs and spices found on its chicken.
A spokesperson said: "KFC’s all-new Signature Fries have been given the ultimate revamp and flavoured with a delicious combination of herbs and spices, inspired by their iconic chicken – seasoning so good, you won't want to take your eyes off the fries!"

However, not everyone is impressed with the new style with several querying what exactly has changed.
One said: "So your idea of introducing new fries is seasoning the current ones? LMAO."
Another wrote: "They really spent thousands of pounds on marketing just to throw some salt and pepper on the fries."
A third said: "These are just the same horrible fries with seasoning added."
And a fourth commented: "When we said change the fries this isn’t what we meant."
Others were more optimistic, willing to give the new fries a chance.
One wrote on X/Twitter: "Fine….but this is your last chance!!"
While another said: "I'm coming to KFC when these are ready to be eaten."
A third commented: "Can't wait to try!"
And a fourth wrote: "Exactly what they needed."
KFC had teased the announcement over the weekend sending emails to customers apologising for the "inconvenience" regarding the taste of the former fries.
The emails and mysterious tweets had left fans baffled with many warning that it was "about time" they switched up the chips.
The new seasoned fries have been available in Canada since the summer and have received a warm welcome.
If you're unsure about parting with your cash to give the new chips a go KFC is actually giving portions away for free until October 13.
