I ate at KFC last night, for the first time since arriving in Vancouver.  What a bizarre experience!

No biscuits!  They have no biscuits!  Not that I like the biscuits, actualy, but it was an unexpected absence, like the lack of French ingredients on cereal boxes in the United States.

They also have no macaroni and cheese.  They have no pot pie. No baked beans.  No corn on the cob.  No green beans.  No seasoned rice.  No apple or pecan pie. No mashed potatoes. And the only type of wings they offer are “Hot Wings”  I mean, come on, wings are CHICKEN, how can KFC Canada still be stuck with 1987 wings technology?

They do offer “Chicken Sticks” which are the latest in batter-delivery science.

And, while I’m grousing, there’s this offer they’re currently hawking: “Toonie Tuesdays”—a two-piece chicken special. But my eagle eye spotted those turkeys (f)lying! The actual price is $2.49—that’s one loonie more than a toonie. They’re robin’ us! I say, flip ‘em the bird, make like a drumstick and beat it, KFC Canada.

[Editor’s note: He’s gone cuckoo.]

Overheard

“The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.”

...who said it?

“Almost every American I know does trade large portions of his life for entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one of them. In the course of writing this I’ve watched all 13 episodes of House of Cards and who knows how many more West Wing episodes, and I’ve spent any number of blurred hours falling down internet rabbit holes. All instead of reading, or writing, or working, or spending real time with people I love.”

...who said it?

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

...who said it?

“I play with variables constantly.”

...who said it?

“Only the person who has learned Continual Love coming from a heart of Gratitude/Worship can effectively deal with the problem of loneliness.”

I worked for KFC's head office for 4 years (1997-2001). I watched them strip down the menu to half of what it once was. No wonder half their stores in BC have closed, there's no selection, plus they removed all the good tasting stuff ("good" being a relative term). Mind you, I'm happier this way, spend 4 years talking about their food and you never want to think about it again.

No biscuits here, either, if it's any consolation (I know it's not). The Colonel spins in his grave! First they take the "Kentucky" out of KFC, then they take our biscuits away.

They do have baked beans here, though, and "sweetcorn" on the cob.

For the first time in many years, I had some of KFC's potato salad, looking forward to tasting it again. It was REPULSIVE! It tasted like the potatoes were grown with fishmeal fertilizer! UGH! If I wanted THAT flavour I would have had fish sticks from somewhere ELSE!

I am new to this town and I can't believe a franchise inspector would allow this KFC outlet to contunue in business. The building is so old it has to be at 35 years old and does not meet the needs for the community. The food is horrible, coleslaw is putrid nothing like the original sweet slaw they were famous for, Macaronnie salad is tasteless nothing again like the original. The original style chicken has somehow left the building as it tastes more like beer battered chicken. Our very last visit to this outlet was so dissapointng because the these taste limitations, small volume for a family pack of fries and I'd swear the chicken pieces came from cornish gamehens they were that small. With all of these shortcomings I'm sure an inspector would have no problem calling them to task. Finally Canadians see KFC chicken specials advertise in the USA, 15 pieces for $15 or less here at this outlet its 15 pieces for $25 or more. Exchange in currency isn't the issue here as that is only 5%, it is a matter of this Franchise Owner gouging the public. KFC does have a good tasting chicken outlet in Nanaimo BC at the Northwood Mall. The salades and fries still leave a lot to be desired as they don't taste anything like they use to. I'll never do business again at KFC in Campbell River Nor the Ladysmith BC outlet or the Naniamo main Naniamo Outlet on HWY 19A. Dated buildings, small menue,high prices, poor taste, and lousy service, all geared to the reason why your franchises are closing. The once worlds best tasting chicken isn't getting the care and attention it sould be.

Almost everyone I talk to in Campbell Rver BC Canada says the same critical things about the outlet here but few take the time to advise KFC H/O about the systemic problems with this operation. If you are going to inspect this outet you'd better have a look at the franchises in Nanaim BC Hwy 19A Mai location and the Ladysmith BC outlet. Don't bother going to Duncan BC as the franchise there closed due to poor patronage.

Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.

When I look at your blog site in Safari, it looks fine but
when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, wonderful blog!

You project yourself like an impatient boy instead of an actual masculine man. In general, Mexican women love to feel appreciated and truly cared
for by their men. Between numerous couples, utilizing a porn GIF web page
as a technique of excitement is increasing extremely.

Whenever prosecutors or defense lawyers need information quick and
accurately, they should have access to it. With web-based casinos, you
can play at any time of the day ass a break to a monotonous day at the work or office.
