KFC Brings Back All-Time Fave Nostalgic Treat

It's a mash-terpiece.

We’ve seen a lot of comebacks this year, but KFC might have just topped them all—take that low-rise jeans. We’ve caught wind that KFC is bringing back the all-time favourite, pillowy-soft Mashies.

The bite-sized balls feature melt-in-your-mouth KFC mashed potato and boast an irresistible coating of KFC’s signature herbs and spices—a mash-terpiece, fried to perfection. And since potato and gravy are a mash match made in heaven, these bad boys also come with KFC’s iconic Gravy for dipping.

Perfect for a snack, a full feed and a finger-lickin’ good time, the return of Original Mashies will see Aussie tastebuds revisit their spuddy peak. 

Available from Tuesday, May 16 to Monday, June 12, Original Mashies and the Original Mashies Box can be purchased from participating KFC restaurants nationwide. But don’t leave it too late because it’s here for a good time, not a long time.

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.
