KFC have launched a limited-edition burger for fans ahead of the State of Origin clash that comes in the colour of your favourite team.

According to 7news, The Origin Recipe Burger launches on Tuesday, November 3rd and, honestly, that pun is so good it almost doesn’t matter how it actually tastes!

It should be plenty tasty though. The special burger features two Original Recipe fillets, two layers of cheese, lettuce, cheesy mustard sauce and, depending on your footy persuasion, a bright blue or maroon bun.

KFC are running the burgers to coincide with the 40th anniversary of NRL’s State of Origin. “We’re thrilled to launch the Origin Recipe Burger to celebrate this year’s State of Origin series,” said Kristi Woolrych, CMO of KFC Australia.

“The State of Origin is one of the biggest moments on the sporting calendar and it now has its own epic burger to match!

“We all know fans love to don a scarf, a jersey and even paint their face but we felt something was missing — you couldn’t eat your support!

“The burgers will be a great way for footy fans to show their true colours throughout the series.”

The Origin Recipe Burger retails for $9.95, or $12.45 as a regular lunch combo with chips and a drink, or $15.45 as a boxed meal with chips, a drink, a drumstick and a regular potato and gravy.

The only downside? The one-off menu item will only be available in 13 KFC locations across New South Wales, Queensland, and Canberra between November 3rd and 11th.
