KFC- Original Recipe Spices
Fri, 12/24/04 9:27 PM
Do you think KFC still puts all of their 11 herbs and spices in their original recipe chicken ?
I started eating KFC (original) back in the late 50's ,before it was franchised as it now is, when Colonel Sanders would get local family owned restaurants to feature his chicken. I distinctly remember that it had a more spicier taste then it now has. Even after he sold out and it became the Kentucky Fried Chicken chain in the early 1960's, I think, it still retained it's good unique flavor. It seems that in the 70's/80's the spicy flavor seemed to slowly disappear. Nowadays about all I can taste is salt and some pepper and ,very rarely, I can sometimes taste a hint of other spices. I personally think they've eliminated or cut down the spices to cut costs and save $$$
Course, it could be my 59 year old taste buds giving out too !
What think ye ?
