    KFC Meltz...

    Our beloved Colonel or if you rather unkle Sanders... introduced a new item for summer... Called the Cheesy BBQ Meltz... i only discovered it when i walked into KFC to get some fried chicken.. original of course! there were no promo's what so ever for the Meltz, then... no adverts... no jingles.. no banners... zit.. nothing at all... so i was kinda surprised... i suppose it may be a market test/study to determine how the product does before mass marketing... like what McD's did with the Spicy Beef Foldover in KL before releasing it nationwide... correct me if im wrong... but i did finally see a television commercial on the Meltz today though...

    so anyway... The Meltz is actually a "cheesy barbequed toasted tortilla"... same tortilla wrap as the bandito i suppose... The Meltz is basically a tortilla filled with "barbequed chicken", diced tomatoes, some nacho flakes and parmesan cheese before being toasted.... It's tangy with a little zing (spice)... all the ingredients compliment each other which is always good... the whole thing was a little on the dry side but i suppose thats the norm with most tortillas besides it was toasted... the chicken slices which are claimed to be barbequed dont taste anything like barbequed chicken! they tasted more like deep fried chicken instead.. very obvious difference.. if you've tried the Meltz.. barbequed or not?.. tell me..

    Taste wise... it was pretty good.. on a scale of 1 to 10 i'd give the Meltz a firm 6... The portion size is good and for RM 5.50 its a pretty good snack... i wouldnt call it lunch or dinner otherwise... trust me cause i know i got the best available Meltz... why? cause while i was waiting for my order to be done.. i noticed the outlet manager and another senior manager (area/district/training/etc) keeping an eye and instructing the staff the right way to prepare the Meltz... you know you're getting it a 100% right that way cause all the s.o.p's are being adhered to...
    how does the Meltz compare to McD's Chicken and Spicy Beef Foldovers.... the Meltz goes no where close to both of them... given the choice.. need i say more... Foldover anytime yo...! not just because im a loyal McD-rian but simply because 'em Foldover's are way better and healthier!
