This is not KFC’s first rodeo wrap.
You see, a very long time in the past – virtually 20 years in the past, in truth – the Colonel (or some zombie approximation of the Colonel OR some entrepreneurs within the R&D division) created the Tornado. It was a tortilla filled with hen strips, lettuce, tomatoes, sauce and grated cheese.
There have been totally different variations of it – one rendition with barbecue sauce and one with spicy sauce. Then there was one with mac and cheese inside too. Then Twisters grew to become “burritos” in some unspecified time in the future, then perhaps they grew to become Twisters once more? I do not know. All the things turns into blurry. Both means, they left for the USA however remained (and stay) on the menu in some worldwide places, unique locales like New Zealand and Canada.
And now they’re again within the States…no less than briefly.
However hey, they’re smaller. Bear in mind the beloved McDonald’s Snack Wrap that disappeared in 2016 a lot to the dismay of virtually everybody? I believe they’re about the identical measurement. So in the event you’re hungry, you will need to do the combo for 2 with a facet dish and a drink. Or perhaps simply the wraparound pair, which sells for two for $5 at most locations nationwide. Then you possibly can pair them at residence with a bowl of applesauce, a handful of Pringles, or no matter individuals who do not buy quick meals facet dishes do.
Let’s again up although – are they even price $2.50 every?
Nicely, like most issues within the quick meals world, quite a bit relies on the freshness of the elements. I arrived on the nearest KFC shortly after opening so the tapes have been freshly made. They have been good too, crunchy however by no means dry, with the acquainted 11 herbs and spices. The tortillas have been bland however serviceable, no totally different than what you’d discover at Taco Bell. The pickles have been bitter and crunchy, lower than Popeyes, however significantly higher than what you get at McDonald’s. The mayonnaise on the unique wrap “break up” from the new hen, so it did not add a lot. The sauce on the spicy wrap, nevertheless, fared higher. For those who’ve by no means eaten it (I am fairly certain it is the new sauce they used to make use of on sandwiches) it is like very delicate chipotle mayonnaise, however perhaps just a bit sweeter .
What actually units the spicy wrap aside, nevertheless, is the coleslaw. Though I do not often take pleasure in Colonel’s Cabbage (why would you when you possibly can have the artificially scrumptious macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes and gravy, or the surprisingly good fries), the candy crunch that ‘he lent to the wrapper did it noticeably higher than his no-salad sibling. Additionally, I used to be shocked how effectively the hen remained sog-free; actually, this envelope fired on all cylinders.
Whereas many will maintain them—maybe unfairly—towards the aforementioned McDonald’s wraps or KFC’s unique Tornado, two of these items for $5 aren’t a foul deal in any respect. Hope they keep some time.
