The popular Kentucky Kernel brand announces the introduction of four brand new regional flavor blends: Spicy Cajun, Lemon Pepper, Garlic & Herb, and Crunchy Corn Meal
(EFFINGHAM, IL) – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Kentucky Kernel, an old-fashioned southern comfort food favorite, is expanding its family of mixes with four spicy and savory new flavor combinations. The four new fully prepared coating mixes are all perfectly blended in the Southern cooking tradition for making juicy fried chicken, pork, beef, or crispy veggies. Made with premium heartland wheat flour and yellow corn meal, each bold new flavor also still includes the delicious signature (and secret!) Kentucky Kernel blend of herbs and spices. It’s the perfect combination of bold new southern flavors blended with the signature seasoned flour seasoning customers have loved for decades – all specially formulated for incredibly flavorful coating and frying.
Inspired by the rich culinary traditions of Louisiana, our new Spicy Cajun Mix is sure to jazz up any meal with its blend of fragrant garlic, spicy cayenne pepper, paprika, onion and more. Bring the famous flavors of Louisiana cooking to your own dinner table with this bold but balanced spicy coating inspired by the Cajun cooking traditions of the deep south. Especially delicious on chicken or seafood!
Featuring the signature (and secret) original Kentucky Kernel blend of 10 different fragrant herbs and zesty spices, this delicious Southern favorite features the unique crunch and flavor of yellow corn meal to create a perfectly crispy coating for chicken, catfish, meats and veggies. Fry them up in traditional comfort-food fashion, or bake for a healthier option with all the spicy crunchiness your family will love.
Featuring the tangy tartness of lemon and the pop of cracked black peppercorn, our Lemon Pepper mix makes it easy to bring this classic flavor combination to your next family meal. Zest up your next fish dish or other favorite meat with Kentucky Kernel’s own southern spin on this popular, citrusy classic.
