KFC Original Bites Review

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

I should have given up on KFC a long time ago, but especially today, when their android app kept crashing on me.  Just couldn’t get it to go, an indication that I shouldn’t have “went,” I guess.

There are so many fast food chicken places I like better, from my ‘chicken fingers of the south” tour, to my usual favorite, New Orleans born and bred Popeyes.  And apparently my memory isn’t good enough any more to remember my last visit to KFC.

So why did I go today?  It was free, a coupon good for two “Original Bites” meals, which come with a drink and a side.  Original Bites are relatively new on the menu, a nugget type chicken, though smaller, and boasting “all white breast meat hand breaded in our kitchen.”

I was offered a choice of two sauces, Honey BBQ or Ranch to go along with my chicken bits bites. That’s it?  No Buffalo, Mustard, Sweet/Sour, whatever, or did I just get a lazy cashier or poorly equipped store?   How were the bites?  Meh. A lot of breading and a little chicken, the ten piece meal clocks in at $5.99 if you’re paying money or in bitcoin.

Since it is “Original Recipe”, it’s rather flavorless.  Since I was getting two meals, I got two sides, the potato wedges, which are thick cut fries dipped in batter, fried, and seasoned, and the green beans, which sadly seemed like they had been cooking for a couple of years. With no texture left at all, and no flavor, they were the saddest beans I have ever run in to.  Made me cry purdy near.

Will I go back?  I hope not, but just like most Americans, I am a prisoner of convenience.
