KFC's New 'Zinger' Sandwich Is Good, But Is It The Best In The Zinger Family?

KFC's New 'Zinger' Sandwich Is Good, But Is It The Best In The Zinger Family?

As Benzinga welcomes a new addition to the kin of Zing, a Zinger sandwich from Yum! Brands, Inc. (NYSE: YUM)’s Kentucky Fried Chicken, we wanted to flip through the family album to celebrate the crazy uncles and embarrassing third-cousins that make the Zinger clan what it is.

Here are some of the most notable branches of our family tree.

KFC Sandwich

The spicy, crispy chicken filet garnished with the subtleties of lettuce and mayo fizzled in consumer reviews, but we maintain hope that the snack will live up to the hype of its predecessors.

Sheldon Cooper

The star character of the CBS Corporation (NYSE: CBS) series, “The Big Bang Theory,” has long represented Zingernation with his signature call, “Bazinga!” But somewhere during the 10-season stretch, the cry lost its cuteness. The show’s ratings linger at all-time lows.

Hotel Transylvania’s Zing Ditty

One of the quirkier cousins of the Zinger line, but it well enough represents...

Zingerman’s Delicatessen

Sure, we’re Detroiters, but we’re Michiganders first, and by extension we have a little love for the renowned Ann Arbor deli. Between the pastrami and the Funky Chunky chocolate cookies, we find little brother worthy of a visit.

Hostess Brands, Inc. (NASDAQ: TWNK) Zingers

A raspberry-covered vanilla cake stuffed with cream? Hands-down favorite sibling.
