Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: KFC Krush'ems Confirmed sighting: KFC Krush'ems
Posted: 23:43 Sun 25-Oct-2009. Price: 1.79. Location: Essex. Sub-flavours: Maltesers Chocolate Crumble, Oreo Cookies 'n' Cream, Strawberry Shortcake, Caramel Crunch.
"captain jax" reports: Had one of these the other day as I thought it might be something to rival Shakeaway, but what I thought was going to be a milkshake made with blended up Maltesers turned out to be some vile crushed ice drink with bits of Malteser in. Absolutely horrible. My girlfriend had the Oreos one which was possibly worse.

...Thanks, "captain jax" - I didn't think the Strawberry Shortcake one was too bad, though they're pricey compared to a McFlurry, plus the straw apparently needs to be peashooter-width to accommodate all the gritty bits. In other beverage adventures, "John Jenkins" paid 90p for Jones Sugar Cane Soda in a Spar, noting that it's: "Not a new drink as have purchased it in Canada and you can buy online (e.g. americansoda). But I have never seen this for sale in the UK before, looking at the label it's distributed via Ireland but still made in Canada. They only sold Blue Bubblegum flavor but hopefully the other flavors are out there."

(From what I've seen, Jones Sodas have been fairly widely available in London from time to time, including the snack bar outside the cinema in the Trocadero and the post office opposite Kings Cross.) Anyway, Red Bull Energy Shots have also been launched to take on the similar Relentless product (and this year's new Rockstar Cola?); and "bob" says he's already seen Cherry Lucozade, though over-18s may be able to get the same sort of sugary sensation from Heineken's tequila-flavoured Desperados while waiting for the weather to get cold enough to properly appreciate Rekorderlig Winter Cider or Crabbie's Alcoholic Ginger Beer.

Comment: We have had Cherry Lucozade in the drinks machine at work for about a week now. I'm trying to stay away from it, it's quite moreish but a bit calorific.

Comment: I think they might have that Alcoholic Ginger Beer in my local offy, however I went for a bottle of "Ginger Tom" instead which was a mix of Old Tom beer & Fentimans Ginger Beer

Comment: I absolutely love the KFC Krushems they are fantastic but make you feel sick afterwards and also give you brain freeze - the oreo one is the best! :)

Comment: Did not like the strawberry shortbread Krushems and was really surprised it was not sweeter. I expected something similar to a milkshake version of the strawberry shortcake desert by Burger King but it couldn't touch it.Really disappointed and in my opinion it's not worth 50p. Comeon KFC, get it together. Is this why you also cannot do a vegetarian menu cause you are afraid of getting it wrong, despite the demand for it. Very, very disappointing.

Comment: Ah, gotta love the complaints that Kentucky Fried Chicken don't do vegetarian.

Comment: Well, it's not even as if they use real chickens anymore. Why do you think they renamed it KFC?

Comment: Are Krushems suitable for vegetrains?

Comment: Zeddy -they don't use "real chickens"??

Comment: Nope, it is genetically modified headless bodies that they pump full of growth hormone. They are grown in vats in about 3-4 weeks and then harvested. Still, fancy a boneless bucket?

Comment: You know that's not actually true, don't you Zeddy? I mean it's hilarious and all, but it's just an urban legend. You really need to stop repeating rubbish you read online. Snopes has this on it:- http://www.snopes.com/horrors/food/kfc.asp I'd be surprised if the chickens are free range etc though and frankly KFC is revolting, but genetically engineered freaks? Nah....
