Not too much deserving of an honourable mention here — the Colonel’s coating with its secret herbs and spices sure soaks up the fat. The Original Fillet Burger is the best of the lot with 'only' 18 grams (three-and-a-half teaspoons) of fat, but even the Twister — which sounds healthy with its chicken strips and salad in a tortilla roll — has one-and-a-half tablespoons of fat and over 2500 kJ.

Side dishes like potato and gravy or corn aren’t loaded with fat, so if you eat them instead of chips it balances things out a bit.
