So here we have the Cajun Boxmaster! “the most satisfying lunch this side of Louisiana” according to KFC. This is a welcome bit of variation to the KFC menu, with the wrap and cajun sauce, it stands out somewhat. A pretty large wrap, with a unique taste, lets get into the details.

Taste

Well, this doesn’t really taste like anything else on the KFC menu, so well done to them on that front. What we have here is a grilled chicken fillet, a hash brown, cheese, lettuce, and the spicy tomato cajun sauce, all wrapped in a tortilla. This all adds up to what is a pretty large wrap. So is it any good? Well, it’s all right, nothing special, but the chicken works nicely with the cajun sauce, giving it that spicy feel again, and the cheese also compliments it well. However, its a grilled chicken fillet, it isn’t quite as tender as a fried one, and in most branches, they won’t swap it for you. My one complaint however, is the hash brown, it is deceiving, you think you have this beautiful, chicken filled wrap, when in actuality, it is as much hash brown as it is chicken! Other than that, its got a somewhat spicy, chickeny taste  and we don’t get bogged down in all the bread like normal burgers, so I recommend you give it a try!

Value

Well, as we have established, it is £3.79 on its own, or £4.79 for a meal, this is the same pricing as the supercharger, so we have the same complaints, £3.79 is typical KFC, which we all know is too much for just one wrap, whilst it may look large, once you tuck in, you swiftly realise that, though it is satisfying, a meal is needed and the wrap alone is not enough. So, you pay £4,79, but with this meal, all you get is fries and a drink, no side, no chicken. Therefore, you pay only about 60p less than the other meals, but your left without a side or some wings. For this reason, and this reason alone, The Cajun Boxmaster cannot be purchased more than once, I will only ever be able to buy this, just to say I tried it. In my eyes, it makes no sense when a meal that will actually fill me up is only 60-70p more. (even if it does break the elusive £5 mark).

Health

When it comes to health, a number of features of this wrap actually do quite well, firstly, no bread, secondly, its a grilled fillet…And it just about ends there, the Cajun boxmaster still manages to rack up 538 Calories, which, granted is still less than a Nacho Stacker, but it is still a pretty hefty amount, and with 50% of your days fat and salt, it doesn’t paint too pretty a picture.

So, this meal is probably not the most satisfying lunch this side of Louisiana, probably not by a long shot, but for something a little different and still pretty tasty, the Cajun Boxmaster isn’t bad at all!

KFC Wicked Zinger Meal: User Review

The Facts Price:  £5.79 with Tower upgrade Contains:  1 Wicked Tower Zinger burger, 2 x hot wings, 1 regular side, 1 regular drink Calories: Standard 975kcal.  With hash brown and cheese tower upgrade 1,185kcal. Availability:  Ongoing A consistent feature on the KFC menu offering a magnitude of taste and variety. You will have to excuse the reviewer as I am not fond of mayonnaise so I always ask for this burger without mayo.  The counter staff however do not react like you are a freak for asking for something to be excluded and nor did it affect my waiting time.  So you know the burger has been made up fresh and not sat around for an hour. Taste… I Read More...
