They do use instant potatoes here. I once got potato soup. Too much liquid added to the instant.
About twice a year I get a hankering for some KFC. But I only want a couple of pieces. They can keep the sides. Even their biscuits. And the gravy leaves alot to be desired. No chicken flavor, too much flour flavor. Spike brought me a ten piece offering a couple of months back. I think that was my last hankering. I was disappointed in the whole meal. Greasy and tasteless. And I was left with a pile of bones to dispose of to keep the little critters from wanting to make this apartment home.
I am old enough to remember when they first came out. You didn't have choices. You got what they gave you. And no wings were included as a piece. Wings were used for large party orders. They were the "go to" for Super Bowl Sunday. Bone in or Boneless, it is still fried chicken. I can go boneless if necessary. As long as it is part of the leg and with the skin on. You are going to pay more for the boneless. More skilled labor to remove the bone.
Our original KFC building is now a Dunkin' Donut building still with the original roof.
What has taken off in these here parts is Poco Something or other. A Spanish Chicken fast food place. They have traffic going in and out all day long. Another big competitor for KFC to look out for.
