For a unique-tasting chicken, KFC’s the best.  Whether it's original or hot and spicy, nothing beats Colonel Sander’s secret fried chicken recipe. Its distinct flavor and creamy gravy made KFC Chicken a legend of its own. So it’s not that surprising that KFC combined their famous fried chicken to almost all of their meals - from burgers and snack boxes to their pasta bowls. The newest addition to this is the KFC Cheesy Bacon Pasta Bowl.

I have read hundreds of praises about this new Pasta Bowl. I have been an avid fan of the Creamy Tomato Pasta Bowl, so there’s no way I shouldn’t try it. I’ve seen it several times in commercials, advertisements and it looks appetizing. And comments like, ‘It’s so yummy,’ ‘I’ll come back to KFC for this,’ and the like made me eager to try this right away. 

My Judgment

Basically, this new pasta bowl is covered with cheese sauce and topped with chopped bacon and KFC’s original recipe chicken fillet slices. When I received this highly-appreciated pasta bowl, I felt excited at first, then became disappointed. I was excited because the meal looks delectable and it smells so delicious. However, I found it too small a serving for a Php 95-worth of meal. When I had my first taste of this cheesy bacon pasta bowl, I found it okay-tasting. The combination of cheese sauce, bacon and chicken, I believe, was okay and there’s nothing special. Sadly, I only finished three quarters of my meal. The cheese sauce and the chicken tasted good but the bacon tasted salty.

Comparison With Other Pasta Bowls

I still prefer KFC’s Creamy Tomato over the other Pasta Bowls including this new innovation. Nothing beats the heavenly feeling you’ll get with this good smelling pasta loaded with parmesan cheese, tomato sauce and real tomato slices.The Cheesy Bacon Pasta Bowl, on the other hand, is too small and tasted salty after a few bites. The flavors of the Creamy Tomato pasta bowl complement each other unlike the new pasta bowl which I think, is overly flavored.

I guess I’ll stick with the Creamy Tomato Pasta Bowl and other KFC favorites. It’s a lot more satisfying and worth the price it is sold for. However, if you want to know what others are bragging about, try the new pasta bowl and give your own verdict.

I have nothing bad to say about the creaminess of the Cheezy Bacon Pasta Bowl but that's just what it's all about -- creaminess. It tasted so bland like I it needed more salt.

I loved the penne and cheese sauce (consisteny was perfect) combo.. the pasta bowl as a whole would have been great if it tasted less salty
