KFC has been the talk of the town this year with their controversial twists on classic festive flavours, but fans are saying they have missed a trick. KFC have recently introduced their two festive burgers ‘The Stuffing Stacker Burger’ and ‘The Stuffing Tower Burger’ both burgers combine the original recipe chicken fillet with sage and onion stuffing and spicy cranberry sauce all in a soft brioche bun. The Stuffing Stacker Burger features two pieces of the original recipe chicken fillets whilst the Stuffing Tower Burger features one piece.

However, this has caused a lot of talk around the fast-food chain missing a trick by not adding turkey onto their menu this year. With all this talk we’ll have to see next year if KFC take some of this advice on, for now, let’s let the burger do the talking.
