Get Real Kentucky Fried Chicken!

in food •  last year

A while back Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) started running ads with actors trying to play the part of Colonel Sanders. They did a terrible job. So KFC tried to make it all a joke and started hiring many different actors to intentionally portray the Colonel as badly as possible. Their new marketing ploy was to intentionally badly imitate something.

That was all well and good until today when I stopped at a KFC to grab a quick bite to eat. They asked if I wanted "butter and honey" to go with my biscuit. Sounded like a good idea. They handed me this:

Honey Sauce???

What the heck is honey sauce? So I read the ingredients, high fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, sugar and only 7% honey. I turned it over...

That looked more like a little packet of pee than sweet, golden, nectar of the Bee. Into the trash that little packet went. "Well at least I have some fresh creamy butter for my biscuit", I thought. I grabbed the little butter packet and...

Buttery? BUTTERY!!!

So I read those ingredients, soybean oil, palm oil, water and other stuff, including less that 2% milk. That must be what gives it that buttery flavor. If it's margarine, just put that on the packet, don't try to deceive me and call your margarine buttery spread.

Maybe They Are Just Morons

It's possible that KFC doesn't know the difference. So I thought I'd put together a little instructional presentation to educate them.

These are beehives.

Honey comes from beehives.

This is corn.

Honey does NOT come from corn.

I hope they were listening. Otherwise, what will be next? Chickenish drumsticks?

Until next time...

Thanks for stopping by, always great to hear from another MAW member. KFC is about the only fast food I eat any more, but sadly, in my youth I ate a lot of fast food.
