I am completely surprised and baffled by this ongoing problem that I face. My travels bring me past KFC once or twice per month, so I stop there for food.

I order a three piece chicken strips meal with potato wedges as the side, with cheese and gravy on top. The first time I ordered it, they put the chicken and wedges on a plate, put cheese on top, poured gravy over it, and it was great. The problem I face is that, since then, something has gone horribly wrong and I can't just order food they have and get it on a plate. I don't know why, but every time I go there, in a unique way, they don't just give me the food I order on a plate or in any other container. Sometimes the chicken and wedges come in a box with a little tub of gravy and a cup of shredded cheese. Today the wedges came in two little paper cups wrapped in waxed paper, the chicken in a large box, and the gravy in cheese each in separate cups, and the biscuit that came with the meal on a piece of waxes paper. One time the cashier even refused to give me cheese, she said she couldn't put cheese on it nor serve it as a side - I know sometimes cash registers don't have a button for that, but for sucks sake, is it that hard, when politely asked, to just put some cheese on something? Why is this unnecessarily overpackaged and separated every time I order it? It seems like such an odd situation because they have plates, I order a regular meal on the menu and ask for cheese on top. The first time I ordered it, everything came together perfectly and it was really good. Since then I have gotten between three and six different containers every time I ordered it.

I ordered the same thing down in Maryland when we went to MDF, and it took them so long to figure out how to charge me for cheese that the friend who ordered before me had already gotten his food and eaten half of it by the time their manager decided to charge me for a cookie to put cheese in a cup, rather than putting it on top of my food. I get different types of cheeses too - the KFC/Taco Bell sometimes gives me thicker shredded cheddar, while they sometimes give me the thin Mexican blend. Both are good, though the thin shred melts more easily when gravy is poured on top. Apparently they keep cups of gravy in a steam tray rather than having a large vessel of it available.

Every time I order this, the cashiers always seem so perplexed. I don't know why - they'll take the same chicken strips and put them on bread with the same cheese and advertise that sandwich, they advertise smaller pieces of the same chicken ("bites") with wedges with gravy on the side, and that would be really good with cheese on it too. They have the stuff, why not put it together? It seems I always get a series of perplexed questions - you want cheese? cheese? on top? can I give it to you on the side? and gravy? and you wanted this with the meal?

It was perfect the first time I asked for it, it's a clear request, but it seems more and more difficult every time I order it. It's really good though!

I think I have the solution to your problem. Doesn't KFC offer a dish that's exactly what you described except with mashed potatoes instead of potato wedges? Just order that, but substitute wedges for the mashed potatoes. They're both a side item so that should be easier to sub out than figuring out how to charge you extra for cheese.

Do they? I don't think the bowls come with chicken strips, they have popcorn chicken as well as corn. I don't think substituting wedges for mashed potatoes would be any less confusing though... Now that you mention it, I bet mashed potatoes with gravy would be great for dipping wedges.

Mashed potato for dipping any KFC fried potato side is awesome. Double potato hit!

Mashed potato for dipping ANYTHING FROM KFC AT ALL is awesome.

Who needs chicken when you can have chicken drowned in potato and gravy? <3

KFC's fries are better than any others, I reckon.

I admit the two are very similar, but KFC's wins by a herb's length. ;)

I try not to eat at any fast food chain. All things considered it is not worth my money.

I'm not sure if they still have it, but they had something called the double down.

Yes, meat sandwiched between two pieces of meat. No bun in sight.

I have always wanted to try the double down, but they don't sell them in the netherlands. :/

Also, did anyone hear the rumours of an american invasion of egypt? :lol:

I've had that before. It tastes great, but it's so unhealthy that it's pretty much not worth it.

Although that absolutely pales in comparison to the Grilled Cheese Burgermelt at Friendly's, which is a hamburger (with lettuce and tomato, presumably to make naive people think it's healthier) slathered in mayonnaise and stuck between two grilled cheese sandwiches.

The touched up Friendly's website version:

What it actually looks like:
Spoiler: show

The nutrition (which is such an ass backwards word to say when talking about this behemoth) information is as follows from Examiner.com.

Quote:
The total calorie count of the BurgerMelt is 1,500 calories, with 97 grams of fat, including 38 grams of saturated fat (870 calories from fat alone). The most health-threatening number, though, is the sodium count. Just one Friendly's Cheese BurgerMelt has 2,090 milligrams of sodium.


So...yeah.

KFC is linked to Pizza Hut, and Taco Bell too, right?

I've always wondered about KFC, during apartheid there were no American fast food joints like McDonald's, Subway etc in South Africa, except for KFC. Also, in Vietnam, the Vietnamese government would not allow American companies like Maccies, Burger King etc to start businesses there (in 2004 at least), except for, yep - KFC. Guess the Colonel has friends in high places or something, only possible explanation.

Another thing I've noticed about KFC is that it's the one chain that tastes different in different countries, so I suspect that each country has their own secret recipe.

My wife and I joke around about having a food coma after eating a big meal. You're lucky to come out of that one alive. I love food that is bad for me, but I've yet to attempt that beast.

Actually, around the time of the double down, KFC started a rumor of a sandwich called the Skinwich. It was supposedly a sandwich comprised of fried chicken skins and gravy. Imagine consuming a beast like that!

That sandwich (or whatever the hell you want to call that) looks ill. As in, it looks like it's about to puke.

I've always found KFC chicken way too greasy, but their biscuits are the best of any restaurant, period.

My brother and I both got bad food poisoning from KFC once. I've never been back there since. Sadly, one bad experience at a restaurant chain will ruin it.

KFC is owned by Yum! Brands. They won Taco Bell, KFC, Pizza Hut, A&W and Long John Silvers. That is strange if those cases are true. I don't see why they would.

As far as the recipes being different, I can't say the recipe would be different but that would be interesting if that was the case. I know fast food places change their recipes and add certain things based on locations. I really like KFC but I really try not to eat any fast food more then 2-3 times a week. Cheap is good, but there are some things you just cannot duplicate unless done at home.

Pillsbury pre-baked frozen buttermilk biscuits. It's basically the same thing, except you don't have to go to KFC.

So I'll throw this out there for any interested parties. I was they new Half Priced Books in the Algonquin commons today and they had at Iron Maiden Bring Your Daughter... to the Slaughter .45 (45"? not really sure how that's supposed to look as I don't know anything about vinyl) picture vinyl for sale. It was pretty bad ass actually.

It was $50. I have no idea if that is reasonable or not but I thought it was pretty freaking cool.

If it's in the wrapping with no damage that's actually a little more than I'd pay. Most mint vinyls I've seen have been in the $40 or so range. My Killers disc was double wrapped, once in a slip for the actual disc and another plastic sort of case around that.

It had a plastic slip for the whole thing and a paper cover for the actual .45. I think that if I actually collected vinyl I would've bought it but since I don't I just looked at it and put it back. Yeah $50 is kinda pricey but if you can't find it anywhere else then I guess it's worth it.

The cheapest vinyl I got was my copy of Darkness Descends. It was used and in a Strawberry's plastic wrapper (remember that place?), but it was still in pretty great condition and it was only $5.

I ate a double down once and basically what I took away from it is that it's really stupid. The thing was obviously super greasy, which made it really difficult to eat without making a giant mess. If they put the whole thing on a bun it would've been fine.

The one I got wasn't dripping grease or anything. I was able to eat it fine without there being any runoff.
