KFC and Pepsi bring joy to mother of 2 this Christmas

“Thank you Jesus!, Thank you KFC and Pepsi!” These were the consistent words of Miss M Dacosta who received a life-changing phone call from Pepsi JamaICAN Ambassador Ding Dong on November 30th.

Pepsi I Can Ambassador gears up for the big spin on November 30, to select the winner of the Pepsi KFC Bucket Deal Promotion.

This BUZZ worthy occasion was the culmination of the Pepsi and KFC Bucket Deal promotion which gave customers who bought buckets between the October Heroes weekend and November 21 a chance to win $1 million dollars. 

A smile of Christmas hope beams from Ms Dacosta as she poses with her cheque

Fast forward to last Wednesday, KFC and Pepsi executives welcomed her to the Pepsi Headquarters to hand over the much-anticipated cheque. Beaming with JamICAN pride, the winner came forward with her whole family to claim her prize.
