KFC Zinger Stacker Review

The Zinger Stacker has returned to KFC and apparently it is going to be a permanent menu item. Don’t quote us…
It originally made an appearance at KFC Australia and your favourite burger website promptly showed you how to hack it in 2014.
By hacking, I don’t mean balancing it on your head or other stupid nonsense, I mean how to create a menu item that doesn’t officially exist.
It was last on-sale in the UK in 2016 and 2017 and we are hearing it is now staying on the menu. We shall see…
It’s slightly cheaper than the hack, while also including fries (I’m not a fan) and a drink. It’s just as big as I remember and I’ll tell you now that it’s just as good.
It doesn’t include waffles sadly – having been inspired by KFC Australia, perhaps we will get the KFC Malaysia delight next?
In the meantime we have this, two pretty chunky Zinger fillets inside a bun, with double cheese, lettuce and of course Supercharger sauce and that sweet chilli.
It’s a very good sounding line up.
When I did the hack, my creation was presented in the Ultimate black box, there’s no riding on time here with sadly just a very plain KFC box. This promo isn’t getting the love from the cardboard team.
Inside, it’s wrapped well, built well and both looks and smells fantastic.
I wasn’t overly hungry going in, but going out I felt I could have had another one!
At £6.49 for the meal, it’s quite a fair price for what you get and if, like me, you always remember to use your KFC app, then you collect points and things, and I actually got £5 off this.
So it was a winner Zinger all round.
I knew I was going to enjoy this before eating it.
I love the Zinger anyway and I’ve been doing this long enough to have developed a burger-sense that tells me if I’m going to like something or not. It’s not 100% accurate of course but it was working well today.
The lettuce is there. That’s all I can say.
It showed up in some of my photos and provided 4 of my 5 a day, but I didn’t taste it.
What I did taste was a building glow of the spicy triumvirate- Zinger coating, supercharger and chilli sauce.
Barely noticeable to begin with, extremely noticeable at the end. Absolutely fantastic.
The chicken in this was about as good as it gets.
Crispy, tender, sticky, chunky and tasty, and with the addition of two slices of cheese to keep it moist, I found myself really enjoying the Zinger Stacker.
It’s the spice that nails it for me. It’s hot but not too hot, just sitting on the fence of daring and pedestrian.
For me, anyway, it’s a perfect balance.
Could it be any better?
Well KFC could follow McDonald’s lead of late (add bacon to something they’ve done before and call it new) or go the whole hog and bring us the Zinger Waffle Burger.
Bacon would be interesting on this for sure but even as it is, I would strongly recommend you get yourself a Zinger Stacker – whether it is temporary or permanent on the KFC menu.
