  • KFC chicken shortage

    Love this!

    I guess people are calling the police because of store closures. I find it so strange it's popularity in other parts of the world like England and China and here in the U.S. it's dying on the vine.

      Nasty is a generous term, Gene. I haven't eaten restaurant fried chicken forever. I started frying it in my smoker or on the grill and the end product is so much better. I did have an awesome chicken fried steak at a tiny diner in TX back in October.

          It's not other than it's fried.

            KFC used to be really good, at least I thought it was, but at some point the quality went down. I wonder if it had anything to do with that trans fat ban? Fried food seemed to really go in the crapper after that.

              KFC went downhill when they merged with Taco Bell and Pizza Hut. All 3 used to be good, now all 3 are crap. I'm with Gene, Popeyes is the best now.

                Now maybe if they started frying burritos in the joint KFC/Taco Bell stores, they might be on to something.

                  I bring home some KFC every once in a while. A little of it goes a long way - some big gaps in how often I do it.

                  Colonel Sanders father-in-law, had a brother-in-law with my last name. He (the brother-in-law) was my grandfather's second cousin. I go to distant family reunions sometimes, (I enjoy making family tree diagrams) and my distant cousins pointed that out to me. A distant relation to the Colonel, through a couple of marriages, but it's there!

                  One of my distant cousins at these reunions, (grandson of the above referenced second cousin of my grandfathers) still around, born in 1938, had the Colonel approach him in the infancy of his business long ago, offering him stock in his company if he would weld him up a big chicken fryer of some kind. He refused, he didn't especially like the Colonel. Said the Colonel was kind of a foul-mouthed old grouch. Some other guy down the road did the job. Oh well, the other guy really cashed in!
