KFC really knows how to keep a secret...


This is a pretty interesting article about the protection of the Colonel's secret recipe of 11 herbs and spices, handwritten on a 68 year old piece of paper.

Aparently they keep vials of the herbs and spices in there too. I always thought you were supposed to throw spices away after a year due to loss of potency...?

Jeez, guys lighten up. Your chicken really isn't that good. Why the James Bond tactics and secrecy?

You should see the insurance policy they have on that recipe...no joke. But I agree, their chicken makes me sick.

The secrecy is because if we knew what was in it we wouldn't eat it.

DKC, oh so true...I'm scared to think what really makes up the recipe...Amanda, I agree, BARF! KFC just doesn't taste good to me...

I used to like KFC,haven't had it for some time. People replicated the taste. May be not exact mix but who cares. Moreover, if they changed the secret recipe today only people who eat there everyday would even notice.

We are so close that we can taste it!

If it's not you... my bad
