Price: £3.49.

The Fast Food App Wars are in full swing with KFC launching the new WOW Box.

It seems the high street fast food giants want to get you using their ordering apps more and more.

McDonald’s have just finished their January ‘Appy Days MyMcDonald’s daily deals “promo” and Burger King continue to offer vouchers on their app, including the recent exclusive preview of the Rebel Whopper.

KFC have now added a host of deals on their Colonel’s Club members platform, including a 10 Piece Family Feast for £10.99 (usually £16.99), Hot Wings Snackbox for £1.50 (usually £1.99) and WOW Tuesdays have returned, with nine pieces of chicken for £5.99.



What is in the KFC WOW Box?

Well you get a Fillet Burger, one piece of Original Recipe Chicken and regular Fries.

I was expecting it to come in an “actual box” – I don’t know if this is supposed to be served in a box, but my WOW Box was missing the box. I WANTED A BOX!!

I’m not sure what piece of chicken I received though and can’t confirm if it is random or a particular piece in every Wow Box. Show me your wow box…


How much does it cost?

If you’ve missed it already, the KFC WOW Box is available at KFC for £3.49.

With a Fillet Burger Meal usually costing £4.99 (OK this doesn’t come with a drink – so minus £1.29 or 10p more for Pepsi) and one Chicken Piece at £1.99 this is a decent enough saving and ideal for a quick lunch.

When is the KFC WOW Box on-sale?

This is available from Monday 27th January until Sunday 23rd February at KFC restaurants in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Wow Tuesdays

How can I order it?

The KFC WOW Box is an exclusive offer for registered KFC Colonel’s Club members. To use this offer, simply scan your card or app at the counter and tell the cashier that you would like the WOW Box Meal offer. Just don’t ask for a box…

Original Recipe Chicken

How does it taste?

For £3.49, you will be hard-pushed to find a better lunchtime offer.

I quite liked the £1.99 Fill Up Lunch though, but that contained a Mini Fillet Burger, 2 Hot Wings and regular Fries.

The Fillet Burger is respectable, but nowhere near the legendary status of the Zinger Stacker, Dirty Louisiana or Original Recipe Stacker.


On the Fillet Burger, you’ve got the basic combination of lettuce and mayo and after having recently sampled the Vegan Burger, the coating on the chicken one is definitely crispier. Definitely…

I’m 50/50 when it comes to on-the-bone chicken – this is alright, with that signature KFC-spiced herb coating and not an unwelcome, if not obvious addition to the WOW Box.

And then the fries… oh the fries.

Personally, I’m not a fan. For me, if I go to a fast food restaurant I want to eat something that I can’t necessarily replicate at home.

But the KFC fries just feel like I could crack open a frozen bag of McCain’s chips (sorry KFC these are more chips than fries) and whack ‘em in the oven at 200 degrees for 25-30 mins.


Was it worth it?

Overall, the KFC WOW Box is definitely a “wow” for the price and the amount of food you get for your cash.

You’ve got the standard Fillet Burger, one piece of Original Recipe Chicken and a regular portion of KFC chips. It’s all just a bit bland, run of the mill and is solely there to attract those looking for a good deal IMO.

    Me and my wife got a Wow box each yesterday (to take away). They both came in a box, and we both got a different type of chicken (I got breast, she got thigh). Maybe if you eat in they serve it on a plate?

    The 10 piece family feast is not £10.99 but £14.99 which isn’t really that good a deal at all. Certainly not an incentive to visit.

    I wish they would go back to the old fries the new ones are not nearly as nice they should give the choice of new or old fries

    My Greyhound thought this was lush. (But he does eat anything!).

    My husband and my self order the wow box at hasting branch and all we got was a burger and chips we went to Tunbridge Wells today and ordered the same again and was given a burger and chips again do the staff know what is in a wow box

    The 3 items are not worth there full price of £7.27, and they are still not worth the £3.49
    the chip portion are very small and in no way worth £1.49 for them. the lunch box amount of chips are better volume. but still pushing being worth the £1.49.
    The wow box is not such a wow. just getting the £1.99 snack box and a fillet burger cost the same.
    there is very little difference between the a mini fillet and the non mini version. just really a slightly bigger bun.
    but when you look at chip volume there is apx 2 1/2 times more chips in the snack box than the small so called reg chips.
    vs the 10 mini fillets for £4.99 this is a poor value offer and as you see they are not running this for as long as they ran that offer

    I recently tried The KFC Wow Box. Now the chicken fillet burger was ok, however I was disappointed with the rest, because I got a mingy portion of fries and a small piece of chicken, so in my own personal opinion there’s nothing wow about that box.

    I purchased The Wow Box by KFC a week ago. It did come in a box, which contained a chicken fillet burger, a mingy portion of fries, and a small piece of chicken. I have to tell you that I was still hungry after I had finished the meal, so there’s nothing wow about that box.
