KFC needs perfected for sure. Last time we got KFC it was so fatty and yet sadly thin of real chicken meat we gave up.

Now the box thingy is amazing. Why not change all surfaces to solar generating capabilities?

As a kid Colonel Sanders was still on commercials, his fried chicken was treat. Very little is any fatty bits.
I had not had any in years so in may late 20s I purchased some KFC it was fattiest greasiest crap I ever had, to this I have never gone back.

I know off topic

If it dies no big deal, wait till I get home to charge it. I'm not a slave to the phone

KFC should be more worried about serving good food rather than promoting a gimmick like this. I had KFC last week and I didn't know they made chicken that small. Even the barrel was small!!

Back in the 70's they actually served chicken and the size of pieces was normal, nowadays I swear they're serving either quail or pigeons, if the size of a breast is any indicator. :biggrin:

KFC is take out food (well maybe food) and you generally pick it up and take it home with your car.
Don't most people have a car charger for their phones?
It's just a gimmick to sell crappy chicken to the unthinking and charge more for it.
If I agreed with you then we would both be wrong!
