KFC is introducing their new limited-time menu, the Spicy Smoky Crunch which is a rendition of their Hot & Spicy flavour but with some Portuguese smokiness.
They’re also presenting their new KFC Banana Chocolate Ball, a glutinous skin coated with breadcrumbs and filled with sweet banana and chocolate filling.
It sounds super tempting, so I decided to try them out at my nearest KFC.
The Taste Test
The colour of the chicken parts is a bit darker and vibrantly red. It even left red oily stains on my fingers when I touched it.
The first bite was actually kinda great. You can actually feel the smokiness and paprika flavour to it. It’s peppery, tangy and crunchy at the same time.
I can feel the heat at the back of my tongue afterwards, but it wasn’t a bad taste, it’s a taste to keep me going.
As for the Banana Chocolate Balls, I can immediately taste the sweetness of the banana after one bite.
However, I think they just put in the banana flavouring to enhance the taste. I can even smell the banana before even biting them.
The chocolate filling is not that oozy but it goes quite well with the banana flavour. Although a bit oily, this dessert is gooey on the inside and crunchy on the outside. It’s like the Pisang Goreng Cheese with chocolate sauce (minus the cheese).
Overall, I actually recommend getting the Spicy Smoky Crunch. It’s not that spicy, it’s a spiciness that you can tolerate well (more like the BBQ or Hot & Spicy flavours of potato chips). I give it an 8/10.
Meanwhile, for the Banana Chocolate Balls, the smell enough is very tempting but I think I wouldn’t buy them again. It’s a good dessert if you just wanna give it a try. I’d give it a 5/10. But different people, different taste palettes, right?
Go and have a taste of your own at all KFC stores nationwide before the limited-time menu disappears.
The price of the Spicy Smoky Crunch starts from RM17.49 and comes in the following options: (1) 2-pcs Combo, (2) 3-pcs Combo, and (3) Box Meal. Meanwhile, you can get a 5-pcs Banana Chocolate Ball (RM7.99) à la carte or in a 6-pcs, 10-pcs, or 12-pcs Wow Bucket Combo.
