KFC Zinger 5 buck box review...



The Zinger sandwich has finally come to the USA!!!

for 5 buck you get the sandwich, potato wedges, soda, and a cookie.

The sandwich here was a bust heat wise. I will say it did get to a slight nose blow, but compared to the Wendy's spicy chicken filet it just did not bring the heat.

The seasoning existed on the sandwich for sure, but hardly the heat I was expecting. The chicken though was solid.

The cookie, soda, and potato wedges were the same quality as always.

I give this KFC experience a thumbs down and I say this item is a SKIP

The latest series of KFC advertisements has encouraged me to skip all of their offerings...

While in Pakistan I had a KFC Zinger Xtream and it was good and spicy.

Sorry to hear that here in the US it was not spicy.

I do wonder if they did change the recipe for the USA which would be a full on travesty.

I got that KFC meal deal a week or so ago right when it first came out, but I thought the chicken was too spicy. If I want a chicken sandwich, I think I'll stick to Burger King. I love their crispy chicken sandwiches.
