On many occasions, you purchased KFC and felt that the chicken did not taste right. The chicken has a funny aftertaste. The sauce was either too lumpy or watery. KFC is never consistent.
Below are some quotes of KFC made by Colonel Harland Sanders on September 9, 1976, for the New York Times. Colonel Sanders sold his company to an investment group in 1964 and was not pleased that his brand had dwindled to such a state. This was over 40 years ago, imagine what Colonel Sanders would say today. The colonel would not be impressed.
“It was finger-lickin’ bad!”
“That’s the worst fried chicken I’ve ever seen.”
“My God, that gravy is horrible. They buy tap water for 15 to 20 cents a thousand gallons and then mix it with flour and starch and end up with pure wallpaper paste.”
“That new crispy chicken is nothing in the world but a damn fried doughball stuck on some chicken.”
“This ain’t no goddam Tennessee Fried Chicken, no matter what some slick, silk-suited son-of-a-bitch says.”
“Next suppose you add some of this brown gravy stuff and then you have sludge.” “There’s no way anyone can get me to swallow those potatoes.”
Fun Fact: Only two company execs can know the recipe at any given time, and KFC won’t release their names or titles. (Let’s hope they do not travel together)
