After stopping in at my favorite KFC the other night, I noticed that the taste of the Original Recipe has lost nothing due to the change in the oil used to prepare it.
It is still finger-lickin' good!
I suppose the Colonel would be shocked to know that this had happened; but he would have probably been shocked at all of the "secret hidden recipes" that were discovered by the corporation after his death too!
The KFC (and really why can't we go back to calling it Kentucky Fried Chicken - are we all that lazy to say a few more syllables?) that I most often frequent is on 7th Street in Parkersburg. It is not in the best area of town, but the crew that works there always has it decorated and cheery for every season. They go out of their way to make sure that children coming into their store almost always have a little candy dish somewhere on the counter.
My only complaint, is one that this particular store can do nothing about - I really wish they would bring back the chicken livers and the original gravy with all of the black pepper in it.
