I took it in my bare hands, rewrapped the dog with the chicken, and shoved it into my mouth, heavily oiling my fingers in the process.
Just as expected, the chicken was extremely salty and oily. The Colonel's sauce did nothing to offset the saltiness of the chicken, nor did it balance the taste out. And that was the good part. The hot dog was another story. KFC Philippines only sells chicken-meat products, and they tried to give this chicken dog a twist by incorporating cheese into it. Adding salty and greasy processed orange cheese to a mealy chicken dog probably isn't KFC's best move ever. Hopefully, its poor test results guarantee that this sucker doesn’t show its head in real Kentucky any time soon.
