Very nice and tender Nuggets. Just enough spice to get you keep munching one after another. 5 stars for flavour. It would be nicer with more crunch, but it is overall pretty good.

after a long day scrolling through Facebook at work, I saw an add for 20 chicken nuggets for $10 at KFC. It had been a while since my last nug affair and this time I decided to include my partner in my nugget orgy. I was not particularly hungry, or self hating, enough to demolish 20 of these on my own, so splitting it to 10 each made forna cheap romantic dinner. We went to the K Fry in south Dunedin on Anderson Bay Road, ordered some wings and chips as well to turn this meal into a feast. 3 sauce options; tomato, bbq, and sweet chilli. unfortunately they were out of garlic aioli (FYI aioli stands for "garlic mayo" so when you say garlic aioli, you are literally saying garlic garlic mayo), so we chose to have one of each sauce. the sweet chilli does not agree with my palate and it got to enjoy the rest of the meal in the brown paper bag with the discarded bones and used napkins. tomato sauce was tomato sauce, little bit sweeter than a ketchup, tangier than Watties tomato sauce. the bbq was the winner here, nice and smokey, and when paired with best foods mayo, as aioli wasn't an option and would have easily replaced the middle child sweet chilli, it competed hard with Macy's sweet and sour.

the nugs.....
certainly a thicker bit of chicken and, at least to me, felt less processed than Macy's nugs, I just didn't feel as satisfied. I put this mostly down to the coating. you see the tempura batter generally associated with nuggets adds a crunchy texture that works well in contrast to the smooth feel of whatever sauce you dip it in. the cracks and bumps help the sauce cling on to your piece and when you bite down these different elements come together to create a pleasant experience. the KFC coating has no crunch; now, we did take these nugs home, a 5 minute drive, and should test in a store next time, but still we have taken tempura nugs home that still crunch hard. in a way this lessens the flavour of the nug. K fry nugs just tasted like they had less flavour compared to traditional nugs, and they only had one sauce that was worth even giving praise for, and even then, they only got close to the sweet and sour standard with the help of mayo...

when macca's goes full price nugs, KFC fills the void with their $10 for 20 pricing. when maccas puts their nugs on special, KFC is left in the corner like the middle child... forgettable.

no image cause they weren't worth taking a pic of, and I forgot that you can take photos.

The loose soft batter is amazing. These sweet nuts surpass the over compensated maccas nuggs. Can even get aoili sauce. These nuggs are under rated and need more recognition for their success

These weren't great. The coating was soft and gross. The chicken inside was a weird texture and did not feel nice to eat. The BBQ sauce was decent but unfortunately they didn't have any sweet and sour sauce. The popcorn chicken, however, was good.
