Yesterday, we tested the new KFC Popcorn Chicken, just launched on the Mauritian market. In fact, while walking around in Shoprite, we ‘coincidentally’ landed in front of KFC and I queued up to order one while Dhaneesha continued doing what she loves the most (apart from eating, of course) : shopping.
For Rs99, I was amazed to see that the Popcorn Chicken, handed over to me, was exactly the same as the one in the adverts, unlike the KFC brazer for example.
Generously filled with small pieces of chicken in a popcorn-like cone, it came along with two small packets of its “fruit chutney” powder which you need to sprinkle over the “popcorn chicken”.
As for the pieces of chicken, they were exactly like those served as Crispy Strips, except smaller in size.
And now, time to taste it.
I first grabbed one without sprinkling any of the powder. Then, I had a second one, this time with some powder over it. And finally, I took a third one, over which I had purposely spread quite some powder over it.
The thing was quite salty and once you have one of them in your mouth, you have that sudden want of having a glass of water. Dhaneesha did not like it neither but we nevertheless finished the whole of it.
Verdict : KFC Popcorn Chicken? Never again, at least, not for the both of us!
Anyone tried it?
