In short, the Zinger Chutney Burger is a tasty tribute to their sweet & fiery love story that celebrates the month of love.
“It has been an incredible experience celebrating the month of love with KFC and Mrs. Balls. I spent the entire month witnessing the throes of the fiery and sweet love saga between the KFC’s Colonel and Mrs. Ball’s Chutney. I enjoyed seeing the Colonel turning on his Southern charm for South Africa’s sweetest peach, and finally seeing their ongoing banter morphing from a fiery ‘flirtationship’ to a full-blown love saga,” said Mavuso who serenaded guests with his sultry sounds during the evening.
