TIL after Colonel Sanders sold KFC, the restaurant chain changed the secret recipe for their gravy and chicken. Sanders hated both so much that he berated the gravy as “sludge”, said the chicken was “a damn fried doughball put on top of some chicken”, and opened a competing fried chicken restaurant.

  • “This is the worst damn chicken I’ve ever had in my life.” – Colonel
    Sanders, 1970s after Heublein bought KFC.

  • I never did trust the colonel. With those wee beady eyes, oh you’ll buy my chicken.

  • Now I want some Lee’s Chicken.

  • What was the competing restaurant?

  • Anyone else kind of disturbed by the fact that they use his likeness in commercials and have actors play him like he’s just a character or mascot? It’s really weird.

  • He was a midwife and AA sponsor for his poorer neighbors in Hell’s Half Acre, and signed on as food services volunteer at Oak Ridge labs during the war. His title of Colonel of Kentucky is a civilian honor bestowed by the state of Kentucky in recognition of his service to his neighbors and the nation, and significantly more difficult to obtain than the military rank. He was an all right dude, and loved a roaring good time, despite being teetotal.

  • Funny cause KFC is trash. Popeye’s baby.

  • TIL; Colonel Sanders sold KFC.

  • KFC really went downhill over the past couple of years. Back then it was pretty good friend chicken. Now, it’s only cheap fast food, with a quality to match.

    Ten, twenty years ago, their honey barbeque wings were friggin’ amazing. Now it’s just sadness on the bone.

    They done fucked up.

  • The only thing I like from kfc is the cole slaw

  • The Colonel was an asshole.

    EDIT: Apparently, nobody has ever read anything about him. Did you know he would berate employees that he didn’t feel were doing the job right?
