The Zinger Taco was the time limited item for the month of November at KFC. And we were delighted, as it coincided with when interest in making and eating nachos and tacos at home peaked.
Zinger Tacos have ‘a spicy Zinger fillet topped with lettuce and tomato salsa, packed into a hard taco shell and soft tortilla held together with our fiery Supercharged sauce’. The Zinger Taco Boxed Meal comes with two.
These tacos were a tasty package, overcoming the usual problem of eating hard tacos — where it cracks upon biting and you end up with taco shell everywhere and taco innards all over the place — by wrapping the hard taco with a soft taco. The innards had a moderate and enjoyable heat from the salsa, while the Zinger fillet brought more crunch and the tomato and lettuce added freshness. Overall, these tacos are balanced in flavour and texture, making for an enjoyable snack.
Zinger Tacos appeared on KFC menus in Sydney during November 2017.
