Daily Quickie is a short tag on the title which I use for blog entries about food I'm snacking at home, work or anywhere.
If you've been a reader for a while, you probably know that I'm a big fan of KFC. So when I first saw the commercial for the Cheese Top Burger, I can't help but ask myself, "Is this serious? This is probably a bad joke, right?" But of course, KFC wouldn't pay for the commercial slot just to make us laugh. It's not April Fool's Day when I saw it anyway.
Even if I found the concept behind the burger funny, I convinced myself to give it a try. So when our family ordered in our favorite Bucket Meal with Brownies (P585) for delivery, I also included an ala carte order of the Cheese Top Burger (P48). To my dismay, the cheese on top of the bun has cracks and was broken into a few more smaller pieces. I guess it's not delivery-friendly, but I was still interested to give it a taste nonetheless.
Upon first bite though, I somehow understood what KFC was going for with this one. The baked cheese on top was quite dry making it easier to hold on to the burger even with bare hands, while sandwiched between the buns is a chicken patty in a garlic parmesan dressing. The combination of ingredients is quite similar to other chicken burgers around, but having the cheese on top makes the bun cheesier. That and nothing more.
I guess I wasn't too disappointed with the Cheese Top Burger since I found it as a joke even from the start anyway. However, I don't recommend trying it out for those of you who are curious souls. You can always order any cheeseburger and put the cheese on top. But for the lols, go on and have fun with it like what these cool guys did! ;)
