Review: KFC Snacker

A value option sandwich at KFC, the KFC Snacker sells for 99 cents. It is basically a KFC Chicken Strip, shredded lettuce, and pepper mayo sandwiched inside a sesame dinner roll.

It's a pretty good value considering that buying a strip alone even with a coupon is at least $1. It's a pretty good snack as well with good meat to bun ratio.
The saltiness of the chicken and mayo are well balanced by the soft, squishy roll and sometimes soggy lettuce (it'd probably be more crisp if I didn't have it to-go). Around southern California, the Snacker is also available with buffalo sauce, with cheese, and with shredded BBQ chicken.

Update 8/31/12 - Lettuce is no longer an option on the Snackers and, by and large, lettuce is pretty much no longer part of KFC's ingredients for now. KFC Snackers are now $1.29 (except for Honey BBQ, which is 99 cents still at my local KFC) and come with the Colonel's signature sauce by default. Other varieties include Buffalo, Ultimate Cheese, and Honey BBQ (varies by location).
