Review: KFC - Colonel's Original Sandwich

KFC's Colonel's Original Sandwich features a piece of Original Recipe Boneless chicken with Colonel's sauce on a sweet Hawaiian Bread bun.

I picked one up for $2.99.

The sandwich is an optional menu item that may or may not be available in your area depending on your local franchisee. It's been available since early 2012 and is basically a no-frills Doublicious.
The bun was a little dry and stale on this occasion. I've had the same bun before and it was soft and moist. It had a light sweetness to it.

The chicken, unfortunately, was also pretty dry (but that seems to be a thing with the white meat Boneless chicken) but crispy. On the plus side, it had the familiar flavor of the Colonel's 11 herbs and spices.

The Colonel's sauce tasted like a sweet mayo. It's nice but not too interesting.

Overall, the Colonel's Original Sandwich was a bit of a letdown for me. It was just a bit too plain and simple and way too dry.

  1. Despite the ho-hum review the sandwich got, I can't understand why this is not a standard item at all KFC. They could also have a version with lettuce and tomatoes without much trouble, I would think.

  2. We have this in Canada, have had it for about 1 year, but in ours, there are two boneless chicken strips and our Colonel's Sauce is pepper mayo. All in all, it's pretty damn good. but at $3.99 + taxes, a little pricey.

  3. 100% agree.. this is the type of thing KFC has been missing lately. Chicken Littles.. yes even the current version.. are a favorite of mine but they are a little pricey for how small they are. I miss the triple crunch zinger.
