    Indeed small, very small.

      Eh, I always find these a bit hard to get indignant at. You can make a huge difference in 10 seconds with lighting / angle / 'fluffing' the food up to make it look better.

      It's actually very hard to take delicious looking photos of most food.

        It's a novelty segment. I don't think anyone in their right mind would expect fast food to look like carbon copies of their advertisement shots, and if they do, they're a little foolish IMO :P Though sometimes you can be pleasantly surprised..

        The Lifehacker thing is just an amusement. The further away in similarity the 'real deal' is from the marketing shot, the funnier, usually. At least I find it is. But I am easily amused.

        Look how little the chicken strip is. haha. Love how the camera perspective also makes the box look HUGE, like the sides are towering over these sad chips and lonely chicken nugget.

        That may be so but the promo pick shows the chicken from corner to corner in reality the chicken is half the size. That's pretty crooked.

          Maybe the box should be smaller so the chicken looks bigger.

        You can also take that 10 seconds and go in the opposite direction and make things look way worse than they actually are.

        More referring to the other pics I clicked through in that takeaway truth series.

        Eg. I've never seen a subway sub look that bad, and article writer even mentions he said to the maker 'make it look like one in the advertisement' as if to intentionally piss them off.

        I can see why they would, maybe I just have a stick up my ass but it's not that funny.

        That being said, the taster box is pretty pitiful even by reasonable expectations.

          I actually found the article hilarious!

          I've wasted a whole minute of my life reading it, and I encourage others to do the same :)

          @Wintergirl:

          There's someone who has a different sense of humor to mine?! ALERT THE PRESS!

          I can see the headlines now: 'This just in, ozbargainers have found that there exists someone who doesn't like stick up butt type humor! The end is neigh.'

          I was just pointing out the fact that they have a commercial incentive to make the products of the fast food places look as shit as possible since it's intended as a humor piece as opposed to objective journalism.

      If it looked anything like that last picture, then it would be worth it. I got the smallest piece of chicken when I was there..

      Haven't you seen falling down?

      Oh how true! +1 for link

    •  

      Found this on above link - photo of mcd angus burger. Reminded me of the one time I bought it. It looked exactly like this: throw the meat in, then a handful of salad, and you're done. $9.50 please!

    Anyone think the chicken piece kind of taste's like hot dog meat? It really doesn't taste like chicken. At $2 I'm still gonna get one(or two) tomorrow lol

      KFC uses chicken?

    •  

      It's funny you should say that because the first thing I said when we got our takeaway bag was " does this smell like warm dog food to you?" ….I also ended up with food posioning for the whole next day needless to say I won't be having this again!

    I bought one, and it evaporated before I could eat it !

  • +3 votes

    wait? did these go away? It's the only thing my wife will eat at KFC so I always add 2 of those to my order, because I'd lose the wife before I'd give up my KFC

    Edit: I think up here in QLD it is $2.50 though

    It's always been on the menu.

    Its tiny and tastes bad. And I like kfc

    Its not worth $2, more like 50c. Do not buy!!!!!!!! The piece of chicken is very small. Don't fall into the KFC banner at the front of the store, it looks nothing like it..

    • +5 votes

      Just needs enough people to complain to ACCC about false advertising. lol.
      You could also go buy 10 of them, then tell them "I'm not accepting this order, because it doesn't look like the picture".

      Agree. I had one last time, the "piece of chicken" was the size of a nugget. Fail.
      (Not to mention the choice case of salmonella poisoning I got from KFC in December. (profanity). That.)

      •  

        why does your brain allow your body to keep going back?

        no seriously, is it the advertising or peer pressure or some other reason?

        •  

          People usually go back because they like what they getting. I like(d) the taste. KFC is tasty.
          (Do I really need to explain the concept of liking stuff to you?)

        •  

          @Draxxx: lol, they gave you salmonella. but you got a cheap deal, right… lol… nevermind…

          man, it is obvious why corporations do what they do.

      The gravy they put in it sells for $1.70, add in the chips and you're well and truly getting your piece of chicken for nothing. If you don't want it, don't eat it.

      •  

        Just because they 'sell' it for $1.70 doesn't mean its worth that much. Perhaps if they increased the price of their entire menu and then offered a meal for the same price as they use to, does that make it a bargain? Ofcourse not.

        Never though of it that way. Buy chips and gravy for $2 (throw out the chicken). Now its looking more appealing. Yumm

    my local KFC seems to keep giving these out with a full sized potato and gravy, the kids love it.

  •  

    Is it any worse than the tiny Maccas tasters. They are super small and $3.

  •  

    grilled , meh

    • +2 votes

      Grilled one side only. If they grilled both sides it would shrink and turn into ash because its so small.

    •  

      Its actually precooked just like the mccains frozen nuggets. The local store just heats them up.

      BTW the "grilled" marks are painted on with some kind of food dye. Just try it, it rubs off with your finger and only the white plasticky meat remains

    If we received everything "as advertised", the world would be a happier place.

    • +3 votes

      For me, as advertised doesn't mean looking the same as the image.
      For me, I just want the same amount of food shown in the picture, it doesn't matter if the chicken is on top or below. Presentation doesn't matter.

      •  

        exactly, the size of the piece of chicken shown in the banner is massive, in reality it was like 1/8'th of its size.

      •  

        This. I think people would be a lot happier if they received the same quantity, regardless of how the food looked. Value for money would still please people more so than the likeness of the food to the promo shots.

  •  

    This has been on sale for a while now hasn't it? I thought it was $2 from when the boxing day test was on?

  •  

    Tried it once. Found it very hard to digest. Chicken was like rubber. That's why they give you the sauce as a lubricant so it goes down smoother :-)

    BTW These samplers have been selling on + off for past couple of yrs

    We got lucky and they didn't have any grilled chicken and gave us crispy strips. THAT was a tasty bargain!
