BIG changes ahead for KFC

And anyone who likes to eat "traditional" chicken
No bones about it: KFC goes boneless

I can see me ordering the new boneless chicken for lunch on the move, or as I'm passing through that area. I think it would still be messy to eat while driving though. But to eventually phase out traditional bone-in/skin-on chicken... I don't know... It just seems so wrong.
Fortunately the town store makes a good copycat KFC fried chicken.

Hmmmmm

I can see it being a good thing for little kids in that the bones are gone, but that's about it.

No bone, no skin, more money.

Nope .. they already charge way more than I think is reasonable.

Like Pac said ... the local grocery store does an excellent clone of KFC - actually we like it better because it's never greasy - and it's way less money.

Even their "coupons" don't make their meals or chicken only very affordable ... I think the Colonel would be very unhappy with KFC today.

Considering that I've gone 50+ years without ever having once eaten at KFC, I don't see any big changes coming my way.

I can see it being good for kids, too, LMB.
I just wish they'd leave their original offering alone. Maybe it will go the way of Coke and come back reborn... KFC Classic, lol.

In the introduction to the video, the President said it was a new product. To me that doesn't mean it replaces all other existing products.

I like KFC extra crispy. I like it on the bone. That's the way you're supposed to eat fried chicken. Not saying I wouldn't buy the boneless if convenience was important, such as when you're on the go.

The article said it would be made of whole muscle.

I used to love KFC. Lately, the gravy seemed to have less flavor, so I started going to Church's and I like theirs better.

I never liked their mashed potatoes and gravy. I ate it, but only because it was part of the meal. I meant to ask Snip and Kylie if theirs was different in the other hemisphere... maybe they use real potatoes or something.

I don't see anywhere that they are replacing their traditional offerings, just offering something new.

I rarely eat there, because #1 my SO is sensitive to MSG, so he doesn't eat there, and #2 most of our KFC here are a bit run down, and kind of scruffy looking. There is one near my work that's decent, but I haven't been there in quite a while.

I would order the boneless, since I usually order the tenders. I think that it is a nice offering, but here in the south, chicken on the bone is a staple, that's the way that the majority likes to eat it.
