#BearVsBear: Comparing Malaysia’s Favourite Fast-Food Chicken Nuggets

#BearVsBear: Comparing Malaysia’s Favourite Fast-Food Chicken Nuggets

 

The Bear team took some leisurely time out from comparing personal loans and travel insurance on our site to find you the best deals to feed on our favourite bite-sized snacks – chicken nuggets!

Nuggets
Have you compared nuggets side-by-side and wondered if your favourite is actually worth being your favourite?

Most Bears already have personal favourites, but we decided to throw in the blindfold and make it a blind taste test!

Just how different are chicken nuggets across three fast food brands in Malaysia? We compared the seasoning, texture, and price – and downed them without any sauce to enjoy them au naturel.

Disclaimer: we are comparing this just fur fun; our not-so-refined culinary tastebuds are nothing to shout about!

Watch our short video below for the full story!

 

 

In short, here’s what we discovered after chowing down those tasty little morsels!

 

1. Seasoning


Burger King

Burger King

Burger King claimed that their nuggets are “titanic in taste”. We discovered that it came with a hint of pepper, and the seasoning was relatively balanced across the entire mouthful.


KFC

There is a sense of familiarity when it comes to savouring the Colonel’s nuggets from the first bite. Those who regularly order KFC’s Original Recipe fried chicken would quickly recognise the similar herbs and spices imbued with every bite.


McDonald's

McDonald's

Simple, clean-tasting – and nostalgic to most Malaysians. The neutral flavour of the McNuggets makes it easy for dipping (not that we did) and we appreciated the lack of grease in our hands after every pop.  

 

2. Texture


Burger King

The breading was pretty innocuous, however it lacked a bit of crunch that would have made it more appetising. The texture of the meat was light and fluffy, and quite finely ground.


KFC

KFC nuggets featured distinctly different breading on the outside compared to Burger King and McDonald’s. Its lightness gently reminded us of the chicken skin of their Original Recipe chooks – not a bad thing at all. Each bite of the nugget was also meatier, owing to easily identifiable shreds of chicken.

McNuggets were crunchy on the outside with a discernible tempura feel, but not too thick that would require additional effort to bite through. The all-white meat was also denser than the rest, providing solid and satisfying bites along the way. 

 

3. Price

Guess no more! Depending on how many pieces you order for your meal, the price per nugget will vary significantly – which means more savings and better value for money.

 


Burger King

Burger King

As low as RM0.99 a piece when you purchase a box of 10 pieces.


KFC

KFC

As low as RM1.31 a piece with every nine-piece purchase.


McDonald's

McDonald's

As low as RM1.36 when you purchase a box of 20 McNuggets. 

 

Just like comparing for financial products on gobear.com, the Bear is unbiased and therefore we are not here to crown any of the awesome nuggets here a winner. For what it’s worth, the team would eat them all again, and again, and again.

However, the Bear would like to encourage you to always cultivate the habit of comparing first. And look out for our next instalment of #BearVsBear!

Bon appetit!
