KFC Has Just Resurrected ‘Mashies’ In Tasmania

The little mashed potato morsels are back.

If you can remember KFC ‘Mashies’, you’ll be very excited to hear that they’re back on KFC menus currently in Tasmania. If you haven’t heard of, or tried them before, you’re in for a real treat.

KFC Mashies basically take the greatness of KFC potato and gravy, and put it inside a coating of KFC’s original recipe. Little mashed potato balls, that’s really all you need to know.

Available only in Tasmania, Mashies come in a pack of six which costs $3.95, or a pack of 12 for $6.95. Each of those options comes with regular gravy to dip the mashed potato morsels into.

Get them before they disappear again.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
