Aiyo Colonel Sanders aka Mr KFC, Why So Small?

A fortnight ago, I went to KFC in Kepong Jaya Jusco with my kids. Since KFC came out with a new dish, the Shrimp Stix, I wanted to try them by ordering the snack plate combo with Shrimp Stix. They sure look succulent and tasty in the brochure and advertisement. I am not sure KFC worldwide have this dish or it is only introduced in Malaysia. I thought it would be nice to have some seafood instead of chicken all the time! But when I saw the Shrimp Stixs, I am surprised that they looked very much smaller that the ones we see in the advertisement and brochures. This is what you see in the advertisement and brochures

This was the actual one that was served to me! See how small if you compare it relatively to the one in the brochure! One mouthful and my kids finished it immediately.

Have you noticed that the Colonel Burger and the "Original" chicken also seems smaller?

Haiyo...for that price of "shrimp"...might as well go buy from market and goreng sendiri :p

i hate such advertising banners like that...it's way too misleading. they should show the real thing, people come and buy for that same item, no more no less.

There's no shrimp sticks in kfc here and the original chicken is a bit salty...the one in the Phils is way better.

Hi, 1st time visiting from SmallKucing. Yes..my SIL went to tried and said :Not only is the size small, but there is no shrimp at all! She was so dissapointed...

Pete said...

Smallkucing : Agree loh, buy and fry them by ourselves would be better, can eat to our heart contend!

Ayie : I guess they only introduce it in Malaysia, probably by the franchisee.

Kikey : Ya lor, kena con by camera tricks!

Christine : Next time I will ask them to show me the actual product first! ha ha, LOL!

Wenn : Or after frying it shrink....can call shrink stix, ha ha ha!

nMhl : Thks for visiting. At least my one got shrimps inside...wah, quality control that bad uh? Must ask for money back. He he he!

Go complain! they have to give you the same size as advertised! unless there is this fine print below!

Pete said...

ladyviral : When I came to my senses and thought about that, my kids allready finished all the shrimp stix! LOL!

ladyviral said...

aiyar! they too fast hahaha!

Pete said...

ladyviral : The fingers you see in the picture are my kids' ones, already reaching for the food, so fast, aiyo!

suituapui said...

I don't usually go to these places... Expensive and not really that nice! Not healthy either! Give me our good ol' kedai kopi or hawker stall anytime!

Pete said...

STP : Ya agree, eat at kopitiam or hawker stall better....but then sometime have to give in for the kids! LOL!
