    Default Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC Blech!)

    I haven't had KFC for a good year, so I decided to give it a shot.
    Today, Tuesdays, they have a 2 piece special (drumstick and thigh) on
    for $2.50 including fries. So I ordered a special, and was very
    disappointed. What I tasted was fat, chicken and salt. Lots and lots
    of salt. What happen to all the herbs and spices?

    KFC standards are no longer consistent in my estimation. Some places
    are good but too many have so so food. A good franchise business
    maintains standards and enforces them if it is to prosper.

    I have faint memories of Kentucky Fried Chicken back in the late 50s and
    early 60's when I thought that it tasted really good. By the 70s I
    could not stomach the stuff.

    The original recipe, many moons ago, used to be as good as any
    southern fried chicken you could get from your grandma.
    That is long gone.

    This is correct. Back then, your daddy could pick up a bucket of KFC and
    fixin's for not a lot of money and make out like a big hero to the wife
    and kids. These days when I spend $35 or so at KFC for some weird pieces
    of chicken, I feel like a big goofball.

    My parents got it once in a while. Mainly when the neighbors came over and
    dinner rolled around. There was one within walking distance. I would only
    eat the mashed potatoes and the biscuits.

    It's been that way for more than a year. Your taste buds finally
    caught up with reality.

    I remember when Col. Sanders had sold the company but was not dead yet
    and was beside himself that standards had been allowed to slip so
    much.

    I remember Col. Sanders when it was a real restaurant, not a fast food
    joint and you're right. It was very good fried chicken.

    I remember when Extra Crispy was introduced, he called it
    "a fried dough ball stuck to the bird".

    I haven't eaten KFC in years but I always thought it was far too salty.

    The last time I ate at KFC was about 15 years ago when they had the
    rotisserie chicken; it wasn't too bad as fast food goes, but I haven't
    gone back since they took it off the menu.

    I've never eaten KFC... it's far too expensive for fricken chicken. I
    never order chicken out. I think I've eaten stupidmarket deli
    rotisserie chicken three times during my lifetime... not memorable in
    a good way... extremely salty/greasy.

    He's spinning in his grave now. We hadn't bought any for a few years
    and tried it again a few weeks ago...it was terrible. We ended up throwing
    out what we didn't force down for our meal....Sharon in Canada
