LET THE CHICKEN WARS BEGIN! baaaack, baaaack, baaaaack
Kentucky Fried Chicken came out swinging today with its new grilled chicken. Colonel Sanders would be proud as lines formed around the local KFCs to try the new bird.
People waited patiently under the red and white striped roofs for the free piece of chicken promised by the famous franchise. They all got a drumstick to sample.
Let’s just say that our crack reporting team was tempted by the free offer. We’re happy to report that we gave the new grilled chicken a thumb’s up, though one noted that it still had too much sodium.
The chicken is grilled with a slightly smokey flavor. Some thought the pieces looked awfully small, but we didn’t know if that’s because they were free sample sizes or they were swollen with the Colonel’s famous recipe.
Not to be outdone, El Pollo Loco hasn’t chickened out. Tomorrow it’s countering with TWO free pieces of their famous flame grilled chicken WITH TORTILLAS AND SALSA. So take that KFC.
Where will the great chicken wars of 2009 lead? Just remember the theme song from “Super Chicken” cartoon.
When you find yourself in danger,
When you’re threatened by a stranger,
When it looks like you will take a lickin’, (puk, puk, puk)
There is someone waiting,
Who will hurry up and rescue you,
Just Call for Super Chicken! (puk, ack!)
