An Australian health and fitness coach travelling abroad in the US has compared the KFC meals from each country.

She also found it bizarre the takeaway food was paired with Diet Pepsi and scones.

Bec wasn’t pleased with the secret recipe chicken either (left) and was disappointed after ordering a burger that was the size of a ‘bread roll’ (right)
‘One thing that’s weird over here is that they sell Diet Pepsi, not Pepsi Max,’ Bec said in the video.
‘I had to try the KFC sauce with the chips and it was pretty good but KFC Australia chips are better.’
Bec and her partner Tim also ordered a burger with their meal but were shocked to find it looked like a ‘dinner roll’ that appeared to be half the size of a regular burger.
‘It was so tiny! Tim was so disappointed,’ Bec said, holding up the burger to show how small it was.
While scones are usually served alongside tea in Australia, Bec was somewhat confused to find them serves as ‘biscuits’ in the KFC meal
Commenting on the chicken strips, Bec took a bite then said: ‘We got the secret recipe chicken which, once again, wasn’t as good as Aussie KFC.’
While scones are usually served alongside a cup of tea in Australia, Bec was somewhat confused to find them serves as ‘biscuits’ in the KFC meal.
‘It was so weird having it savoury instead of with jam and butter,’ she said.
The TikTok video has since been viewed more than 287,000 times and received more than 19,000 ‘likes’.
In the comments others recalled their own experiences and thoughts about KFC in America.
‘Yes as a Mexican American living in Oz. I can confirm KFC here in Oz is better!! And the Macca’s and HJ’s,’ another wrote.
A third wrote: ‘My son cried when we went to KFC in USA as it was so bad,’ one person wrote.
‘The fact only Australia and New Zealand have special salt for the chips just blows my mind,’ another said.
