Just last week, Col. Saunders’s fast food chain made the headlines because a branch supposedly kicked out a disfigured little girl for scaring the customers. As it turned out, it was all a hoax. The lengths people go to to get attention these days, huh?
This time, though, it seems that KFC has a new item on its menu: deep-fried paper towel.
The Daily Mirror reports that Krystal Henderson bought a chicken meal for her step-son Oliver Hallam from the Killingworth branch on Tyne and Wear in the UK. Who doesn’t love a KFC chicken meal?
But Oliver got more than he bargained for. When he bit into that ultra specially spiced chicken, instead of tender, juicy chicken meat, he found himself chewing a blue paper towel – the kind that’s used to wipe your hands after eating some finger lickin’ good KFC food!
Naturally, the mother was upset, and went back to the restaurant, only to be told to call customer service; and we know how that goes.
It could just be a one-time incident, but just to make sure, the next time you order a chicken meal from KFC, check for deep-fried paper towel first, will you?
