I'm not even gonna bother with the promotional/actual burger picture comparison, we all know how it is. So here is KFC's new burger offering, the Scorcher. It's not exactly new territory for them, seeing as the Zinger burger has been around as long as I can remember, and the Supercharger came out a couple of years back. So I wasn't exactly expecting much from this offering, especially not the intense spiciness it claims to have.
This burger is a little different than previous offerings. It does have the old Supercharger sauce, which does have a nice kick, but there's also a Peri Peri Relish on the bottom bun, to add to the spiciness even more. As such, I was actually pleasantly surprised by the heat. It wasn't exactly intense, but it definitely left my taste buds tingling. The chicken is as good as always, and in the Scorcher there seems to be enough sauce around to not be overwhelmed by either the meat or the bread. Still, it's a quite basic burger, and nothing particularly interesting, but KFC have definitely stepped it up a notch with the spiciness angle, especially since the meal is coupled with Hot Rods and 2Hot4U dip. This is a nice burger, definitely worth a try.
My rating: 4/5
