Gab found this post laying around our Drafts, so it's about time this review came out into the spotlight. KFC has two new items on their Menu: Original Recipe Bites & Cheese Top Burger. The Original Recipe Bites are pieces of Chicken Fillet in the Original Recipe skin. Much like Funshots, it favors the non-spicy flavor minus the crunch. The KFC Cheese Top Burger puts a spin on the look of Burgers. It places the cheese over the bun, rather than having it inside. Up for review, the KFC Original Recipe Bites & Cheese Top Burger.
He Says: The Original Recipe Bites is something I could always run to now. The Hotshots & Funshots get tiring to bite into and sometimes feel like all your eating is the breadings that KFC puts into these bites sized treats. The Original Recipe Bites is different. Easy to chew and meaty, it goes really well on rice & gravy or as a side. The Cheese Top Burger was one for me to try, but sadly, it disappoints. The Cheese isn't too welcoming and feels dry, the mayo sticks out too much & the chicken doesn't taste like Chicken. All hype for me, but it's an okay eating.
Rating: Original Recipe Bites = 9/10; Cheese Top Burger = 7/10
She Says: The Original Recipe Bites is basically bite sized chicken. I find it a little pricey for just a couple of pieces. I'd still prefer the crunch of the fun shots. As for the cheese top burger, the cheese on top made no difference. As you can see in the photo, it was baked into the bread, I am a cheese lover and I was quite disappointed with it :( HOWEVER, the sauce they used in their burger was their saving grace. If it wasn't for the sauce I wouldn't bother buying it again. But then again, a burger and a drink for 50pesos isn't bad when you're on a strict student budget.
