Monsieur Poisson and I first encountered KFC Krush Bars when we were in Melbourne mid 2008, but were not curious enough to venture into one to find out what they were about. As we hadn’t seen anything similar in Sydney, or perhaps we just don’t get out much, our interest was definitely piqued.
Commercials started appearing on television soon after and Krush Bars started sprouting up across Sydney. The part that really grabbed my attention was the mention of a ‘Golden Gaytime Krusher’ and the tagline: ‘full of real bitz!’ Golden Gaytime being one of the top three favourite ice-creams from my childhood, with one of the attractions being of course the coating which is studded with biscuit bits. On a day in November Monsieur Poisson and I happened to be near a Krush Bar so I decided to try one of their Krushers. Not all Krush Bars appear to carry the whole array of Krushers but of course mine had to be the Golden Gaytime one!
It tastes exactly like a Golden Gaytime ice-cream in milkshake form and, true to its word, really is full of bits. Some of these sink down to the bottom towards the end of the drink so you need to be careful not to inhale them by accident. It’s quite filling but it’s only downfall, I would say, is its somewhat unfortunate less-than-appealing colour.
And for a limited time when parking at Chatswood Chase, the parking card has a buy-one-get-one-free offer for KFC Krushers. Perfect for this sweltering summer heat!
