Jamie Noms Through Christmas | KFC Festive Menu 2019

Hey everyone! 

Welcome to a brand new Jamie Noms Through Christmas post. I thought that today, I would tell you all about the KFC Festive box Meal that I tried from the KFC Festive Menu.

'KFC’s brand-new Festive Burger is making its Christmas debut. Packed with a succulent Original Recipe fillet, a crispy hash brown, a delicious sage and onion stuffing mayo and topped with a tangy cranberry dressing and a layer of cheese. Why suffer through a dry Turkey Sandwich?' - KFC UK Website.

The Burger 

The Burger was an intriguing new concept for myself and KFC. Turkey Sandwich, KFC style. I loved the Crispy Chicken against the sweet thick Cranberry Sauce, as its vibrant juices mixed with the sweet sauce. I also loved the Mayo, as every so often, you got a pop of creaminess which was then followed by a hit of Sage and Onion. This was great as every pop was surprising on the palette. My main problem with the Burger was that the extras weren't needed that much. The Bacon was a tad flimsy, and only really added a hint of meatiness to the burger, whereas the Hash Brown in my opinion, didn't add anything at all. This was a bit of a shame, as I love Hash Browns! The Cheese added a tiny bit of Goo, but, it didn't contain that much Goo to the point that you could notice it so it seemed a bit pointless having it within the Burger.

Chicken 

I adore the Original Recipe Chicken from KFC. It's crispy and slightly spicy, as, the batter is coated in those infamous herbs and spices. I just adore it and it went beautifully with the sweetness of the burger. There was nothing wrong with the Chicken, but, it's a staple that Ive had many times before at the well known Chicken franchise.

Fries 

Sadly, the Fries/Chips, were the most lacklustre of the Box Meal. I love KFC's Fries, but, I did request Festive Fries, and they didn't taste any different than the normal fries. Honestly, these were kinda soggy and just meh overall. I think that if they had a little bit more crisp then it would have made them even better. I'm sure I only got normal fries, so, if you've tried the Festive Fries, then let me know down below!

Have you tried any of the KFC Festive Menu? Let me know down below! 

Thanks for reading!
