We were invited to KFC's flagship store in Mascot NSW to see how the company makes its chicken first-hand. We were shown every step of the process; from how meat is stored and prepared to the various ways KFC keeps its "secret" herbs and spices out of the hands of suppliers. Read on for a full kitchen tour.
Last week, we discovered that KFC was advertising a 24-piece bucket of chicken on its 'Menu For One'. With a combined kilojoule count of 18,853kJ, this is obviously a terrible idea.
KFC has now removed the offending bucket from the menu and blamed the whole thing on a website error. However, that's not the only thing on the menu that needs changing. In short: the nuggs are out of control.
Last night, I was perusing KFC Australia's online menu for potential Takeaway Truths when I stumbled across something that frightened me. Under 'Menu For One', KFC lists a chicken bucket. It comprises 21 pieces of Original Recipe totalling 18,853 kilojoules. What the hell, KFC?
The recipe for KFC chicken used to be a closely guarded secret. However, a former KFC employee recently leaked the alleged "11 secret herbs and spices" to the world - and after extensive testing, the recipe checks out.
This video shows you how to make bona fide KFC chicken at home. (The good news is, you probably have most of the ingredients in your cupboard already.)
Fast food can be difficult to avoid even for people watching their weight. When you're on the road or it's late at night, it's usually your only option. Other times, you just feel like a one-off treat. All of these scenarios are fine - but you need to be careful not to overdo it. These menu tips will help to fill you up without filling you out.
A sleepy industrial park in the inner west of Sydney is a world away from remote Birdsville, Queensland and the 100 or so locals who call it home: about 2-3 day’s drive with the sun in your eyes. But this is where the voyage begins, as finishing touches are made to KFC’s full-blown original recipe big rig. Dubbed “The Colonel”, it’s ridiculous and over the top.
There’s a slide on the side. A festival within a festival headed to the Big Red Bash -- the world’s most remote music festival that sees Birdsville’s population grow to over 7000. All in the shadow of a giant red sand dune on the edge of the Simpson desert.
It's the news every takeaway fan has been waiting for (and every chicken has been dreading): KFC is launching a home delivery service! From next month, the fast food giant will trial a home delivery service in partnership with Foodora, bringing its famous fried chicken and hot chips straight to Aussie doors. Here's everything you need to know.
For lovers of burgers and fast food, the legend of the "secret menu" is a tantalising one, promising a secret club of tasty, cheap and ridiculously over the top food. Only one fast food outlet has openly confirmed having a secret menu -- and that's the infamous In-N-Out, which is sadly not available outside of the US (unless you make your own). So how do we go for secret menus here, in the land down under?
Burgers aren't always a bad choice for lunch or dinner. Depending on the sauce and toppings used, they can sometimes be healthier than takeaway salads. (No, really.)
However, some options are obviously worse than others - and the potential damage to your waistline is considerable.
Takeaway Truth is an occasional Lifehacker feature where we compare fast food advertisements to cold, hard reality. While a little "artistic licence" is to be expected, sometimes the differences between the poster and the real thing are ridiculous. Today, we take a look back at some of the worst offenders of all time. Look upon Ronald McDonald's works, and despair.
