Review: KFC - Little Bucket Chocolate Creme Parfait

I've always wanted to try a KFC Little Bucket Chocolate Creme Parfait. More because it came in a little bucket rather than because I thought it would be super good. There's just something enticing about food that comes in a bucket (please, no pig jokes).

A small single-serve bucket of chocolate parfait costs $1.49.

There are three layers to each Little Bucket Chocolate Creme Parfait: on the very bottom is a crumb/crust layer made of crushed graham cracker, next is a chocolate creme layer, and on top of that is a whipped cream or topping (I'm guessing the latter).
Basically it's a chocolate cream pie but in a little plastic "bucket." The only real difference is that the crushed graham crackers are not bound together; it's just a layer of graham cracker granules that you can freely stir throughout the rest of the parfait if you so choose.
It's pretty average as far as chocolate cream pies go but I haven't found too much variance in the taste or texture of chocolate cream pies in general (not that I've eaten that many). The chocolate isn't particularly rich but I'm fine with that. I do wish it was a bit colder but I could have just stuck it in the freezer.

Still, it's not a great value especially when KFC is the only place I know of where you can still get a deep-fried apple pie (two for $1) but it's good for when you feel like having some chocolate cream pie action.

  1. What KFC has fried pie? I've never seen it anywhere in the KFC's in the Philly/SJ area. I use to love the McD version.

  2. Still get fried pies at McDonalds in the UK :D Apple, limited edition cherry at the moment, and custard and mincemeat around Christmas.

  3. I guess it's regional then. They have them in SoCal.

  4. I think most countries still have them except for the U.S. T_T

  5. Scratch that, it's only some locations and not all locations in SoCal. But at least I can get them at my local KFC =D

  6. KFC's apple pies/turnovers are so good.. blows McD's apple pies out of the water.

  7. yea I fell so much better now. I'm happy for you though. I make them for myself but somehow McD's and their old oil makes them special.

  8. I think the apple pies at Rally's/Checker's are still fried and are much better than McDonald's too.
