    Word. They started with the 'Zinger' mayo as they stopped making the actual different Zinger Fillets and used the mayo to give it a kick instead. Then they brought out the actual zinger fillet with the sauce - heaven.

    Zinger Tower's were good too, I'd rather have a big KFC burger than a small one, plus piece of chicken, plus potato & gravy etc. If I wanted that I'd get a 3 piece feed.

    Yes, they were great, and the Chilli Double Quarter pounders were simply the best burger ever made by Maccas.

    Things I miss:
    • Lime Coke (add Vodka/Bicardi and insta-drink)
    • Red Rock Deli roast beef & black pepper chips
    • Hungry Jacks discontinuing Raspberry Fanta
    • Pascal Country Mints (might still be made but not stocked locally)
    • The fact that KFC Bacon is now not fried, but some crappy cold stuff

    More to come as I think of them

    Those hot twisties they had a few years ago. Those were great. Also cherry coke. Big thumb up for the el maco. And one last one the zinger tower, an zinger bacon and cheese with hash brown tomato sauce.

    And the angry whopper was pure garbage, mishapen onion rings and jalepenos that were so lame they were cold.

    stock up before they stop making them. i was enraged when i went in for one yesterday and only the normal whopper available!

    the other thing that has pissed me off for about 5 years now was the discontinuation of the original 2 piece milo bar, which was compressed milo coated in chocolate. now they sell this mushy caramel thing instead, which is garbage.

    chilli quarter pounder kicks the shit out of the angry whopper any day of the week! Such a tame burger from HJ's!

    Oh, and yeah, the old compressed milo bars rocked. New ones taste OK if you don't think about how good the old ones were.
