KFC coleslaw Wed, 03/2/05 8:24 PM (permalink)
Help! I need to talk to someone who knows KFC inside and out. If you worked there in the last 10 to 20 years the better.

I need to know about the coleslaw.

It's different in my opinion. The texture is different and I wonder if they changed the dressing.

About 4 years ago I got a pint of slaw and it was way different then I remembered. I got some today and it was almost the same as I remembered but the texture was different.

This will be used in my screenplay, so this information is important to me.

Who can help???

    Sorry, I can't help, but, it is WAYYYYYY different. I will watch to see what you find out. FWIW, I think it has gone far downhill in the last 10 years.

        As far as the screenplay is concerned...it involves a segment about change. Some things change for the better or they get worse. The coleslaw is my metaphore for this change.

          To be perfectly honest, I didn't get the connection there either. However, I really would like to know why they felt it necessary to screw up what was the best FF coleslaw.

              LIkely they change things to save money...ignoring what made people like me go out of the way to get it in the first place. What I want to know is WHEN they changed it and WHAT kind of changes were made to it. I just know it isn't the same...BUT for the sake of accuracy in my story I want to know these things.

                  I use KFC Coleslaw by draining the sweet dressing. I put it in a mesh sieve and press out the dressing with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula. When well-drained, I add mayo, sour cream, garlic salt, dill and black pepper. That's what I add to my own homemade coleslaw too. Perhaps my habit of modifying their coleslaw is why I have not noticed any change.

                    www.topsecretrecipes.com has a recipe it says is from KFC. Personally I can't stand their slaw, but maybe at one time it was good, I don't know.

                      In the meantime, I have a recipe for coleslaw that prompts a similar response in almost everyone who eats it: They think it's the original recipe (*heh*) for KFC coleslaw. I could email it to you if you like.

                      Catherine,

                      I for one would love to have that recipe. I'd like to have something that remindes me of the old KFC coleslaw.
