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.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.

To celebrate the 2017 Lunar New Year, KitKat is bringing two of its famously exotic flavours to chocolate connoisseurs Down Under: the Citrus Creme Brulee KitKat and Red Bean and Toasted Coconut KitKat. For the princely sum of $68, you can purchase a selection of both flavours in a Special Edition gift set. That's $68. For some KitKats. Let's see what they taste like.

Pumpkin pie. It sounds weird to anyone born in Australia, where pumpkin is reserved for soup, roast dinners and occasionally for mixing in with mashed potato to make it a little bit healthier. We certainly don't see it as a sweet food, much less a dessert, though as it turns out pumpkin pie is actually a delicious dessert that every Australian should try at some point in their life.

The NcNutella Burger (AKA Nutella Sweety) is a dessert-based burger exclusive to McDonald's Italy. As its name implies, it's essentially a burger bun filled with creamy hazelnut cocoa spread in place of a meat patty.

Sadly, the Nutella Sweety currently isn't available at McDonald's Australia - so we decided to make our own. The results were surprisingly good!

KFC’s Wicked Wings have their fair share of fans, and now KFC is trying to reinvent them, presumably to convert even more people to the wing side. The result: the Cola BBQ Wicked Wings, which are deep fried, crispy chicken wings smothered in a sticky cola bbq sauce.

Salted eggs might sound disgusting to you, but it’s a commonly eaten food in Asian countries. For the uninitiated, this delicacy is made from soaking duck or chicken eggs in brine then preserving them with salt. I personally love salted egg yolk (the gelatinous egg white, not so much) so when I saw McDonald's was selling the Salted Egg Yolk Chicken in Singapore, I jumped at the chance of a taste test. Here's my verdict.

As you've probably heard by now, Pringles has changed the shape and recipe of its popular potato chips and the internet is not happy. The "new and improved" version are smaller and fattier than before. Most controversially of all, you can no longer fit your hand inside the narrower tin. But how do they taste? We compare the new to the old.

KFC stands for Kentucky Fried Chicken. Operative word being "chicken". That's what the fast food chain is known for. But KFC has decided to try its hand at another type of meat: pork. It has brought out a new Kentucky Pulled Pork Burger. We did a Taste Test on this novel burger and here's our verdict.

When Red Rock Deli first hit supermarket shelves in the late 1990s, it was a revelation to our taste buds. Previously, Australian chip lovers had been limited to a handful of boring flavours. Red Rock Deli showed us there was more to life than Plain, Salt & Vinegar and BBQ, ruffled or thin. Its latest attempt at haute-crisp cuisine kicks things up a notch with such fancy-sounding ingredients as saffron, champagne vinaigrette and wasabi cream. We put each flavour to the test.

Taro is a root vegetable you may not be familiar with but it has been referred to as "chocolate for Asian people". You can find it in a myriad of Asian sweet treats so it wasn't surprising to see McDonald's in Hong Kong selling taro pies. So how does it taste? Let's find out.

Last week, we reported on Arnott's decision to replace BBQ Shapes biscuits with a "new and improved" version that many consumers have slammed as inferior on social media. We urged you all to rush out and grab the originals while stocks lasted. Well, it turns out we can hold off on our supermarket pilgrimages -- at least for the time being.
