Taste Test: The KFC Mac ‘N Cheese Zinger

If you are looking for something indulgent to try out, the new KFC Mac ‘N Cheese Zinger burger may be just too tempting to resist. This new creation from the brilliant (or crazy, depending on your disposition) minds at KFC marries together the comfort food of Mac ‘N Cheese with a crispy chicken Zinger fillet.

The KFC Mac ‘N Cheese Zinger Unwrapped

The KFC Mac 'N Cheese Zinger UnwrappedArriving neatly packaged in a black box with huge yellow letters screaming out “Mac ‘N Cheese Zinger”, the contents only helped to build the anticipation further by hiding behind a paper wrapper.

KFC Singapore's Mac ‘N Cheese ZingerUpon unwrapping the paper, the golden layers of the KFC Mac ‘N Cheese Zinger was something to behold.

In place of the usual hamburger bun were two stand-ins made from Mac ‘N Cheese that had been shaped like buns and deep-fried. The look and colour of these Mac ‘N Cheese patties blended in well with the crispy Zinger fillet.

We started with a nibble at the Mac ‘N Cheese “bun”.

Mac 'N Cheese BunWhile it was hard to taste much of the cheese within the pseudo-bun, it was also hard to argue with something that was this deep-fried. In fact, taking a mouthful of the “bun” with the chicken fillet, we felt that the taste of the Mac ‘N Cheese helped to balanced off the intense (and spicy) flavour of the Zinger chicken patty.

Another surprise came in the form of the turkey bacon that we came upon as we munched further into the KFC Mac ‘N Cheese Zinger burger. The turkey bacon added to the flavour profile and helped to keep the burger interesting.

Would We Try It Again?

On the whole, there is no doubt in our minds that the KFC Mac ‘N Cheese Zinger is an indulgent treat.

Should you be eating it every day? Probably not.

However, do we see ourselves trying it again? Probably yes – perhaps after giving our arteries some time to clear.

The KFC Mac ‘N Cheese Zinger is available a la carte, as part of the KFC Mac ‘N Cheese Zinger Meal ($8.95) or as part of the KFC Mac ‘N Cheese Zinger Box ($10.95) which also includes a piece of chicken.
