Hold on to your mashed potato-loving hats because the moment we’ve all been waiting for is here! KFC is granting the wishes of their fanatical fans and resurrecting a legendary menu item after a torturous decade-long absence.
From tomorrow, the nation will be graced with the triumphant return of KFC’s Original Mashies—no more of those deceitful gravy-filled interlopers that invaded our lives in the mid-2010s. It’s a limited-time offer, so if you snooze, you lose!
Get ready to feast your taste buds on these bite-sized balls of deep-fried mashed potato perfection, lovingly adorned with the Colonel’s top-secret blend of herbs and spices. And wait for it…they come in packs of six or twelve, accompanied by a side of gravy. It’s a party on your plate!
Sally Spriggs, the Chief Marketing Officer of KFC Australia, couldn’t help but add a touch of excitement. She declared, “We’re always looking to wow KFC fans with delicious new treats or resurrect their beloved classics.” Well, Sally, you’ve outdone yourself this time!
But folks, heed this warning: the return of the Mashies is as uncertain as the weather. So, starting Tuesday, May 16, until Monday, June 12, make a beeline for any participating Aussie KFC joint to score these golden balls of joy.
Cast your minds back to 2009 when the Original Mashies first graced our taste buds. It was an instant love affair. But just like a short-lived summer fling, they disappeared from the menu, leaving a trail of heartbroken fans in their wake. We mourned, we rallied, we begged, but nothing worked…until now.
Oh, and let’s not forget the infamous Gravy Mashies of 2017, where Australia became the guinea pig for this mashed potato revolution. We faced the challenge head-on, paving the way for the return of the true originals. Our bravery paid off!
So, my fellow mashed potato enthusiasts, mark your calendars, set your alarms, and brace yourselves for a mouthwatering adventure. The Original Mashies are back, and they’re ready to give your taste buds the time of their lives. Remember, it’s a limited engagement, so don’t miss out on this once-in-a-decade opportunity. Get your Mashies fix before they vanish into the crispy abyss once again!
