Since the Cola BBQ Wicked Wings on KFC menus in 2016, I’ve been looking forward to their return — they were deliciously sticky and sweet with a minor cola kick. It doesn’t seem to be returning anytime soon, though, which KFC instead releasing Smoky BBQ Crunch Chicken during the month of September.
The chicken pieces are audibly crunchy without the occasional soft batter that you get from the original fried chicken at KFC. And covering these crunchy pieces is a smoky barbeque sauce that’s sweet and smoky, much like the bottled sauce from the supermarket. Overall, the pieces with the sauce are tasty, if unoriginal.
Smoky BBQ Crunch Chicken appeared on KFC menus in Sydney, Australia during September 2017.
