I Don’t Want My Fried Chicken Grilled

March 24th, 2008

I try to eat healthy, I do. But sometimes I just want junk food – sometimes I want a piece of chicken that’s been dipped, battered and fried. And when that day comes, I love Kentucky Fried Chicken.

You have to wonder, do the people at KFC really believe customers will come to eat grilled chicken?

Kentucky Fried Chicken customers will be greeted eventually by lighted “Now Grilling” signs, starting in coming weeks in select U.S. cities.

Storefront signs will be altered to promote the new product – called Kentucky Grilled Chicken.

Louisville-based KFC, a subsidiary of Yum Brands Inc., hopes grilled chicken will lure back health-conscious consumers who dropped fried chicken from their diets, or cut back on indulging.

Health conscious consumers are not coming to KFC regardless of what the sign says. And sometimes, even us health conscious guys want a bucket of grease.

    Thanks in part to a lifetime of healthy eating and healthy living I have NO problem enjoying a deep fried delicacy….. make mine EXTRA crispy please!

    Never fails to amaze me how some people can actually act like they’ve “Discovered” healthier foods or such …. like this is something that never existed until their attention fell on it!!

    I guess they will eventually have to change their signs. KFC stands for Kentucky “Fried” Chicken. Grilled isn’t fried. Sorry, but I can’t get my tongue around Kentucky Grilled Chicken. Somehow loses something.
