Today's Review: KFC Zinger Stacker

I don't normally like using promo shots for burgers and the like, but the photo I took of this burger turned out so dark it looked like I hadn't unlocked it yet. I must not have been too concerned with how the exposure was at the time, because I promptly stuffed the burger into my face and then had nothing to work with. So here is a representation of the KFC Zinger Stacker burger:

Looks good, dunnit? Well, that's because someone was paid to make it look that good, but in all fairness mine did look pretty good in real life. KFC's specialty menu items are normally pretty good, and after their foray into burritos and rice boxes, it's nice for them to be going back to burgers. Some have been a bit hit and miss in the past, but this seems to be a return to their roots. It's like a Zinger burger, but with another hunk of chicken. Now, I love a fillet burger, especially one that's towered up, so the prospect of an even larger amount of chicken was too much to ignore. Alongside the two chicken fillets, you also get two slices of cheese, some lettuce, and both sweet chilli and Supercharger sauce. Not sure why they call it a Zinger with no Zinger salsa, but as long as it's spicy that's fine by me.

This was hard to get my mouth around, but was entirely satisfying. The two fillets make this a very chunky, filling burger, and the chicken is just as good as you'd expect from KFC. The coating was particularly crunchy around the edges, which I loved. Perhaps the best part of the whole thing was the mixture of sauces, it's both sweet and spicy at the same time, providing a great flavour that you wouldn't find in an average Zinger burger. I may have been drawn in by that tantalising marketing image, but I wasn't expecting to enjoy this so much. It may not be quite as thick as the picture up there, but this burger is big, it's full of chicken, and the sauces and cheese work around it to make it an all round awesome burger. I'll be sure to pick up another one of these before they disappear.

My rating: 5/5
