Sweet Sesame Crunch is fried chicken with “a sweet Asian-style glaze and roasted sesame seeds”. That description makes it sound like it will pack more kilojoules than regular KFC, and that proves to be the case. Here’s a breakdown of the kilojoule count for a typical single piece of chicken, compared to KFC’s other offerings:
- Sweet Sesame Crunch: 1305kJ
- Original Recipe: 893kJ
- Original Recipe Fillet: 658kJ
- Hot & Spicy Fillet: 778kJ
So not something you’d want to be eating large quantities of every day, then. Put it this way: you can eat two pieces of original recipe fillet for the same number of kilojoules.
The usual takeaway rules apply: don’t eat it regularly, don’t order the chips and ask for a diet drink and you’ll be OK. If you’ve given Sweet Sesame Crunch a try (there’s a $2 a piece offer running), tell us your thoughts in the comments.
