Today's Review: KFC Nacho Stacker Burger

Oh, sorry, that's probably not the best picture.

There. I can never get it to look as amazing as the professionals. You'd think they're sprucing up uncooked meat and meticulously arranging the lettuce. I'm sure that doesn't happen.

But hey, what do I care? It all goes down the same way, right? This is KFC's latest attempt at a new burger, the Nacho Stacker. It's basically a Zinger Tower with a dirty great nacho frisbee stuck in the middle of it. Also some new spicy sauce. I know I've been disdainful towards KFC in the past for constantly slapping a single ingredient into a burger and calling it a fantastic new product, but the original recipe chicken is their selling point, so it has to be there. All that's left is to change the toppings, the sauce, the bun. Sure, most of the time it's quite underwhelming, but one of my favourite KFC burgers is just a Fillet Tower with a bit of bacon shoved in for good measure.

Thankfully, this burger is pretty tasty. The nacho adds a satisfying crunch to the whole affair, and the sauce is fantastic. It's spicy, but certainly not too spicy, opting to be equal parts creamy and flavoursome instead. So while shoving a nacho into a burger is not the most innovative idea, it's certainly pulled off quite well with the Nacho Stacker. Not perfect, but certainly the best new burger they've put out in a while.

My rating: 4/5
