Once there was a time when the idea of a deep-fried jalapeño stuffed with cheese was a novel concept. However, a lot has happened in the world since the early 1990s. We have the Internet now, and Cronuts. The poor jalapeño popper has been left in the cold. One fast food chain in one section of the world sure is trying to bring the popper back, however.
KFC Arabia is busy putting jalapeño poppers on just about everything. The fast food chain has just unveiled a series of sandwiches that all feature the cheesy thingamajigs. The Chicken Poppers Sandwich is a hero that combines fried chicken strips with the hor d’oeuvre while the KFC Royal Poppers Sandwich throws the whole thing on a more traditional bun. The “royal” in the name is a mystery.
The poppers can, of course, be purchased as a side if you are wary of putting an entire tray of appetizers on your sandwich.
