KFC Zinger

So my good buddy Eric told me about a deal to get some free KFC Zinger sandwiches FREE with the purchase of a beverage (a copy can be found here; expires Oct 7, 2012). I am a KFC man though KFC is no longer a super cheap option for a quick bite. The toonie Tuesday has escalated to $2.99 and the other menu combo items are all $7-9; I would rather just buy value meal items for $1.39 at Mcdonalds. A bit of back story on the new menu item KFC Zinger; it was initially supposed to be a form of the double down just spicy but the backlash from a "sandwich" with 540 calories, 32 grams of fat and 1,740 milligrams of sodium was too much here in Canada. Thus the Zinger Sandwich was introduced. What it's supposed to look like:

According to the website the KFC Zinger is "marinated in our hot & spicy seasoning for full flavor, then double breaded by hand for extra crunch ... top[ped] it with crisp lettuce, all served on a toasted sesame seed kaiser bun" and features a 2HOT4U spicy mayo sauce. What it actually looked like:

To be honest it was pretty good. The chicken was soft and spiced in itself and the mild (definitely not "2HOT4U" sauce) mayo added good flavor (and not overly spread onto the chicken). At this particular location the lettuce was actually crisp too which was nice. I would probably buy this again even without the coupon if I ever found myself at KFC and not in the mood for popcorn chicken or a bucket. Verdict: 80/100.
