What happened to my Extra Crispy Trans Fat Fried Chicken???
KFC - We mourn for you Colonel Sanders.
Grilled chicken will be priced at a similar level to fried chicken, KFC said.
“This great tasting product will help KFC continue to evolve and increase our relevance among consumers looking for nonfried menu options,” said KFC President Gregg Dedrick.
KFC, like other US fast food groups, is vying to overhaul its menu as American consumers become more health conscious and wary about the foods they eat amid increased concerns about obesity.
Fast food behemoth McDonald’s has already changed some of its menus and boosted the number of salads offered to its customers.
KFC, which was founded by Harland Sanders in a gasoline station during the Great Depression, said the move formed part of a wider nutrional review of its menus.
The fast food group, known for its red and white branded food “buckets”, said it was also seeking to cut the sodium content in some of its menus after it started transitioning to zero grams trans fat per serving of fried chicken last year.
KFC said it was testing its new grilled chicken at various restaurants across the United States prior to offering the dish nationally.
It was bad enough that my wife started to eliminate fried foods, but I could always go to KFC if I wanted. Now what ??? I’m doomed to a life of bland food. :crybaby:
